As the production of Pet Projects approaches its final stages, the studio team has been working on creative development for what’s next.
Today we are excited to announce the upcoming short film: Project Gold (working title). A “story from the heart”, this metaphorical journey into the depths of human experience explores the fragility of life and our capacity for resilience and inner transformation.
On a creative level, the film will explore an impressionistic, stylized aesthetic. It will be visual poetry, a new territory for Blender Studio.
In preparation for this project, the team worked hard to align the creative and technical targets with Blender development. Here are the top targets:
The project is led by director Jericca Cleland, an experienced storyteller and cinematographer with vast industry experience. Jericca, who started her career in the early days of Pixar and moved on to work with several studios in Europe and North America, will bring her directing, writing and editing expertise to the project.
As for the past few projects, the Blender Studio team will continue to share improvements and documentation to the studio pipeline, along with the research and development of new creative techniques.
The project is in early pre-production stage and will pick up speed after the release of Pet Projects (July). The release of Project Gold is targeted for 2024.
Stay tuned for updates!
