  1. While it’s “3D animation,” it isn’t correct to refer to this as a “3D short.” Unqualified “3D,” especially post-Avatar, implies that it’s stereoscopic, which this is not.

    It /is/ awesome, like all of Blur’s shorts.

    • What do you call a 3D model then? Considering you don’t see the “3D” part until you render it (If you choose to do it that way).

      • Traditionally, any animation that is not drawn if considered 3D. This was obviously made in a 3D modeling program.

    • and 3 dimensional animation has always been referred to as ‘3D’. Steroscopic 3D films are the lesser known form of 3D so are referred to as ‘Stereo 3D’. I would assume ‘3D short’ to be a CG animation, not stereo.
