Spring is a Blender Open Movie directed and written by Andy Goralczyk. It's a poetic short film about a mountain spirit and her little dog. Together they bring spring to the valleys after a long and dark winter in the mountains.

The 7 minutes film was made possible thanks to Blender Cloud subscribers, and was produced by the studio of Blender Institute in Amsterdam. Production time was over 12 months, aligning the film with work on Blender 2.8. The film and all of the assets that were needed to make it have been released as Creative Commons on Blender Cloud.

The presentation will give in-depth insight in the entire creation process.
