Miracle!! Elulu it’s officially a movie!! i’ve finished the movie and managed to send it for selection at the Berlin film festival, this is the begining of the journey through festivals :) i finishhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ittttttttttttttttt!!! !!!! :D
The feature film is going to be finally ready by early october 2019!! Finally C:
Elulu it´s currently at 55 animated minutes of 60, the music is done, and i’m recording the sound effects, i hope to finish it by february 2019 so i can send it to the Annecy film festival of that year, finally. Greetings!.
Hello, i’ve made a new Elulu teaser: I’m also letting you know that i’m going to be with a tiny stand at NDM 2018 fair in Santiago, Chile. In case somenone wants to pass by and say hi C: Greetings!
Uff, it was hard, the scene 31 at one moment had 8 characters in the same shot and also a lot of different simulations (rigid body, hair particles, cloth), so very very time consuming. Also i have added a few flashbacks to make it more misterious from the begining, and also to make some new conecctions between the characters.[…]
I think that the most important psycologic aspect that has enable me to endure this long (currently 5 years), is that i have learned in the process; as my goals in this proyect have been beyond what i, at the moment of setting the goals, knew, the uncharted territory and the joy of solving problems have[…]
I did some sound design for Elulu, Beldrum v2.0 it’s the name of the instrument i invented and used in this video, the version 1.0 of Beldrum it’s part of the Original score i’ve already did for the movie. The Beldrum was recorded in this video using a piezzo-electric mic (the black clamp that you[…]
Yay!, i’ve finally reached the first half hour of movie, wich means a bit less than half of the movie so :D I also made a tiny little turntable video with the three main characters of the movie, the textures were made using Gimp painter, with the GPS brushes, 3D on blender. Greetings!
Almost a year ago i uploaded Elulu’s first teaser, so i’ve decided to upload a second teaser of the movie, with some new images, and the final version of the movie logo and the final version of BELOFILMS corporate image. To be noted though, that it is not a trailer, a synopsis of the story[…]
For the past six months i have been making some big changes, structurally wise i changed the place of some scenes, and using the same backgrounds i redesigned some scenes to add new content, also i made some new conections between the characters, because i realised that it was lacking some human cohesive force, and[…]
It’s best for video editing that you render the music in instrument separated layers and then arrange it as you like on the video editor, you can even mix layers from diferent tracks to make new music as needed, and of course make the track you did on the first place. It’s handy to render[…]
Hello!, as i’m currently making a render that takes forever (of a new scene i added, in wich i have to use the photorealistic render engine instead of the normal render engine), i have some spare time so, i redesigned the website and logo of BELOFILMS. *The silhouette you can see on the new logo[…]

Just some quick test to see how the background works with the textured character, i like :D. A quick update about the Elulu movie status, i hope to finish the color grading of the backgrounds and the music this year, then i will make an animatic with those, and after that will model some models[…]
Unfortunately from a month or so, my computer is kind of dying, problem after another i have manage to sort it out, but right now is currently on intensive care, i´m now currently installing for a second time in a month the Operating system, i hope it breaths again :/, at least everything seems to[…]

The next step of the Storysketch, even do it is not a pre-requisit, it´s the Storyboard, the idea of the Storyboard is to have a deeper aesthetic development, that´s why the template for Storyboard has a bigger frame size than the Storysketch template, now, the next step of the Storyboard is the Animatic, the animatic[…]
