DreamLight’s first 3D animated short film - BlastOff! has won an Official Honoree Webby Award and a Merit Award from the 2D OR NOT 2D Animation Festival. It has also been awarded Official Jury Selections for over a dozen international film festivals including the following: 2D OR NOT 2D Animation Festival, 31st Cleveland International Film Festival, Bare Bones International Film Festival, Big Damn Film Festival, Dam Short Film Festival, Danville International Children's Film Festival, Delray Beach Film Festival, East Lansing Children’s Film Festival, Gem City Film Festival, Foursite Film Festival, The Other Venice Film Festival, Rebel Planet Hollywood Short Festival, San Fernando Valley International Film Festival The original BlastOff! Bed was also featured on HGTV’s Look What I Did!

We created BlastOff! as a test project where we could exercise and refine the skills necessary to produce all aspects of a 3D animated short film, from concept to completion. A primary goal of this exercise was to establish a 3D animation pipeline and render farm at DreamLight that we could use to produce a wide range of client 3D animation projects for the web, CD-ROM, DVD, digital video, TV and film.

In fact, we “wrote the book” on setting up a render farm, we wrote the chapter in the LightWave 3D 9 manual about Mastering LightWave LWSN ScreamerNet on Mac OS X.

While creating BlastOff! we especially focused on many aspects of 3D character animation including 3D character design, 3D character modeling, 3D character rigging, inverse kinematic 3D character animation and 3D character facial animation using morph maps and morph mixer. We built a detailed 3D set of a bedroom with a sophisticated spinning lighting rig for global illumination style animation lighting as well as a full collection of 3D props necessary to populate the set. We also built a 3D space set, complete with a 3D model of Saturn, a twinkling star globe, space nebula and a particle-driven hypervoxel rocket exhaust, fire & smoke trail special effect.

We’ve also posted a full online gallery of high resolution production stills from the 3D film.
