“Coffee Run” Open Movie

May 29th, 2020 Blender proudly presented Blender’s 13th Open Movie, produced by the Blender Animation Studio.

Fueled by caffeine, a young woman runs through the bittersweet memories of her past relationship.

The concept for the film was born out of an animation test
The short film visuals faithfully translated the original concept-art driven, with a strong and stylized visual style. All the production was carried out in the Blender 2.8 and the non-photorealistic look was achieved using the EEVEE render engine.
