Homer Loses It Homer Loses It

“Bart die and Homer cry. Will we ever find out why?”

Film by Hoolopee, U.K., 2020.

Notes from the filmmaker:

The video is made in Blender and rendered using EEVEE. It’s been a great learning project to get to grips with real-time rendering and optimizing my 3D workflow. The final renders aren’t real-time due to high model geometry and volumetrics. Still very fast compared to a path tracer though. There’s roughly a 50-50 split between hand animation and motion capture from Mixamo. This saved so much time and allowed me to focus on animating the facial expressions + dialogue. Character materials are made from scratch in Substance Painter. The environments are mainly PBR image textures and extruded stills. I voiced Lenny, Burns, and occasionally Homer. Music was put together in FL Studio.
