Technical targets

* High detail multi-res modeling (sculpting) and render (micropolygons?)
* Fire/smoke/volumetrics & explosions
* Compositing using tiles/regions, so it becomes resolution independent
* Crowd/massive simulation (fix animation system to allow duplicates)
* Improve library system for managing complex projects
* Deliver in 4k digital cinema (depending agreement with sponsor)
* Make the Blender 2.5x series fully production ready.

Durian concept

Since we don’t have to suffer a traditional commercial production method, the team who will execute Durian will get a near unsurpassed freedom in creating it. Some aspects have been frozen though, partially because of the technical targets, partially just do something different than the previous projects.David Revoy , Dominance War IV Entry

* Short 3D animation film, 5-8 minutes.
* Epic short story, emotional impact, action scenes
* Targeted at adolescents. Ok, we all still are, right! :)
* So let’s add a female/girl as main character!
* Visual and conceptual appearance of a typical “Hollywood” blockbuster or game trailer.

looks like their going for a final fantasy - hellboy - Onimusha style concept

"Durian is an Asian fruit, ugly and smelly but delicious". I know the fruit, and hope the movie doesn't stinks like sh$t as durian :D.

Looks like it will be cool... I think I want to get on that pre-buy as well this time. I think these films are a great thing to support.
