Spring is the latest short film produced by Blender Animation Studio and made entirely in Blender 2.8.

In the 3D animated film everything you see was made using just Blender, GIMP and Krita, that everyone knows they are open source free softwares.

Spring is the story of a shepherd girl and her dog, who face ancient spirits in order to continue the cycle of life. This poetic and visually stunning short film was written and directed by Andy Goralczyk, inspired by his childhood in the mountains of Germany.
