Cosmos Laundromat – First Cycle. Official Blender Foundation release.

On a desolate island, suicidal sheep Franck meets his fate in a quirky salesman, who offers him the gift of a lifetime. Little does he know that he can only handle so much lifetime. (Target audience age: 13+)

“Cosmos Laundromat” started in 2014 as an experimental feature film, in which an adventurous and absurdist love story is being told by multiple teams – each working in their own unique style. The opening of the film, the 10 minutes pilot “First Cycle”, has been made in the Netherlands by the studio of Blender Institute in Amsterdam.

The film itself and all of the artwork files were made with free/open source software and are available under a permissive license. Free to share, free to remix and free to learn from.

  1. So, for one, this film has "first cycle" right there in the title, unmistakably setting viewers up for subsequent cycles. As If that weren't enough, there is actually a "to be continued…" at the end, as well.
    YET!!! Yet I cannot for the life of me find a part deux, or continuation of any sort whatsoever! If it weren't such a great piece, I wouldn't even care, but it is. IT IS!!!!! Please release the rest of this work. Pretty please?!?!?!?

  2. Le Sheep est l'homme. Repoussant les limites du possible : aller en Amérique, marcher sur la lune mais se coupant un peu à chaque fois des autres hommes de leur arbre généalogique. L'homme d'aujourd'hui n'est plus l'homme d'hier : il est plus. Restant au travers des générations ce désir de transcendance, ce dépassement de soit. C'est plus que l'homme : c'est le Sheep.
    L'homme c'est Charon qui se rappelle du Sheep et de ses actes mirifiques sans rien n'y comprendre mais sentant que ce qu'il voit est fabuleux.  Le Sheep une nouvelle fois crée le lien d'humanité entre tous les hommes.
    Vive le Sheep ! Et vive la république ! Et vive la France !
