Finally an update from the producers department.
Let’s start with the biggest news: the premiere date now is final and confirmed!
- Thursday April 10th, 2008
- Cinema Studio K, Amsterdam the Netherlands
- Premiere event starts at 19.00, and includes dinner and party.
This is actually two weeks later than the original plan… which we’ll especially need to go over all shots again for final tweaks, error fixing, and general beautifying.
The premiere event has been made possible in collaboration with Creative Commons Netherlands (thanks guys!), which enables us to make this an unforgettable evening for Blender and for the open source and open content movement again.
The other big news is that we’ll have a real 35mm film copy with digital sound this time! Thanks to sponsorship of our friendly neighbours of Filmmore we will even get three copies, sufficient for an efficient distribution to festivals worldwide. It also means that we can start finding cinemas in big cities for local premiere events (between april 15 and june 1). If you’re interested in organizing this, please email margreet(at)blender.org to get more information.
The premiere evening will be accessible for everyone. However, if you want to be assured you can get a seat for the first screening you have to subscribe to the VIP ticket in our e-shop. This ticket only costs 30 euro and includes a glass of champagne after the film, snacks and a meal, some free drinks and first access to the party with a cool DJ. Not to mention early access to all celebs!
The cinema also will do a second screening, probably around 20h. This will be freely accessible for everyone, on a ‘first come first gets in’ basis. The party is also accessible for everyone, but only after 22h. You’ll then have to take care of your own dinner and pay for own drinks. But you’re very welcome!
More details about the schedule we’ll post here soon.
Note: Studio K is a hip new venue, in the same block as the recently opened StayOK hostel. This hostel has an excellent name. Book early!
