The Gardener by Charles Lang-Follain

rendered in Blender and Cycles

Charles Lang- Follain’s short film “The Gardener” is piece that follows a lone astronaut wandering through a dense tropical terrain. The features of the environment resemble what we would see on Earth, but as the film progresses, it becomes apparent that he has taken residence in a space-age greenhouse in the middle of an otherwise barren planet. The piano accompaniment creates a somber tone that causes one to reflect on the loneliness of the astronaut, and the ending sequence makes us very aware of his solitude. This was Charles’ first attempt at creating an animation in Blender.
