As you can all see, the pre-sale of dvds is going to pass the 1000 mark in a couple of days! That’s excellent, everyone here is very grateful for this support. This week is also the last chance to get a dvd ordered with discount, and with your name added to the credits.
Do note that the name credit is only for those who pay before october 1! Only for bank orders we’ll allow a couple of days delay.
More production news updates:
- The Peach project is going to be supported by the Dutch “Digital Pioneers” fund, they will cover almost all the costs for the two developers, Brecht and Campbell. That I already know for a month, but I didn’t announce it before they have it officially on their website… which is still pending.
- Starting October 12th, first day of the conference, I will be assisted by Margreet Riphagen. She will then become Producer in the Blender Institute, responsible for all organizational tasks involved with running this place and its projects succesfully. The best part of this news is that I then have plenty of more time for working on development again! I expect to be coding again in november latest. Really!
- We’ve found a hardware sponsor, Maqina! Not that we get everything for free… but with significant discounts, way below cost price for this dealer. That means we can also afford the really good stuff. Everyone gets Eizo monitors, for example! More about this company later.
Tomorrow we’ll do more construction work though… two walls are going to be removed (we remove the dark room “to lock up bad coders”), to make a 2nd studio room for people to work in.
