A notable phenomenon has been noticed by www.BlenderNews.org, while contacting potential nominees for the Render of the Week Award. Some of the creators of amazing or professional quality renders turned out to be people still in high school! Should they and their works be dismissed, since the Render of the Week Award is for adults who can "afford" to work as freelancers and studios?

Recently some of them have been introduced in an article entitled "Blender Whiz." It has been decided that "Blender Whiz" will be featured as a series, whenever such talented young artists are discovered. Studios and directors, keep your eyes on these young talents as your potential future employees!

So, it is with great pleasure that www.BlenderNews.org introduces to you Jonathan Lampel for his work "Cabin in the Woods." (Unfortunately, but understandably, Jonathan's parents--who feel uncomfortable about spreading Jonathan's personal information through the internet--declined to provide his photo and that of his school and schoolmates.) 

Title: "Cabin in the Woods"
Genre: Environment Design
Renderer: Cycles

Jonathan's Comment

About Me: 
My name is Jonathan Lampel, and I have been using Blender for about a year and a half. My first experience with Blender was not so great as 2.49 was too confusing for me at the time. After seeing 2.5 however, I realized how powerful Blender is, and then the only limitations were my skill level and imagination. I plan on continuing to work hard over the next two years, so that by the time I graduate high school, I can produce professional quality work. 

About "Cabin in the Woods": 
The reason I chose to make a cabin in the woods was because I have always loved nature and I wanted to be able to recreate even a sliver of the beauty, peace, and adventure found in hiking and exploring. I also wanted to choose a topic that was challenging; beyond what I thought I could do. Making a place that I myself would want to be in helped push me and kept me working hard.
