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.
She will be joined by production designer Florent Masurel, with whom she collaborated on feature films such as Ballerina and Fireheart.
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!

Very excited and honoured to be making this film with the talented powerhouse Blender Studio team!!
What a great news!!!! the concept art shared augur that it will be a beautiful experience to enjoy this project, I will make an effort to follow their progress in Blender Studio. congratulations to the team, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but although in the Blender open movies team there has been female participation in previous occasions, it seems to me that this is the first Blender open movie directed by a woman. I think this is excellent too, because it allows to explore other artistic ways of storytelling with moving images in Blender. Again, all my respect and admiration for all your work, and thanks a lot for sharing!!!!, success!!!!!
Looks absolutely fantastic! Another win for fantasy fans ❤️ You guys are gonna kill it! :D
This sounds amazing! I can't wait to see what you come up with and how far you push it!
Somehow, Amber Heard returns..
This is going to be very interesting to see! :D Looking forward!
