Taste Lab

Two chemists fight to concoct the ultimate soft drink. But their tester is a nine year old girl. It's a recipe for disaster.

Taste Lab: now online!


I thought of a name for it! Good thing too, because it's finished!

Taste Lab is about two chemists inventing soft drinks for a small girl's approval, but her job gets ever more dangerous as their rivalry grows.

I actually expected to finish this in June, so it's pretty miraculous it's done already. Just goes to show that not sleeping has its benefits! Anyway, I'm pretty happy with this one - I worked pretty hard on the visuals and animation, and hopefully it's paid off. Still room for improvement though, but now it's time for a rest.

I'll post again soon. If there's a demand for it, I might do a "Making Of". We'll see. I really ought to get around to making a demo reel too, now that I've got enough stuff to show.

I was hoping to post this earlier, but lately I've been working freelance on a professional Blender film project! I've still got some more to do, but I've got a brief moment to spare, so here's some shots of "film #3". This six-year-old is one of three characters in what should be around 3 minutes of pure madness. The most recurring piece of constructive criticism I got from Mite! was to do with texturing and lighting, so that's what I've been concentrating on. I'll post up more as it comes, though with the work I mentioned it might be a while. In the meantime, here's an in-progress shot of the set.
