The Happy Blender Institute Tour

Posted in Blender Institute, Production, Random Fluff by andy

bitour.jpgRecently I realized that we never really made a complete Blender Institute tour after this project started. Sure, there was Ton’s first round trip waaaay back, but we needed something new, shiny and classy like this to show you how great this place actually is! Luckily Nathan, our master of rigging, animating and hugging, agreed to improvise a very sincere and pertinent guided VIP tour through the marvels of our beloved work- and living- space.

Welcome to the Blender Institute!

    So was Nathan one of those locked in the e-shop?
    I’d probably be kinda strange after being locked up in a room with dead bodies too!

    I love you Ian!

  5. Ian Writes:

    Heh… after watching this video, I think you can stop working altogether because I seriously doubt that Big Buck Bunny can get any better than this ;)

    Hi:
    I am very happy to see such a nice production coming out of such a small yet creative group. I would love it if you take a look at my senior thesis and help with any feed back.
    Best of luck.

    I showed my friend and his first words were, “Oh, is that the trailer for the new pixar movie?”

  11. lohborn Writes:

    Ha ha, hee hee and ho ho! Awesome movie. Could be that my senses are dull and that I overlooked something, but the mention to the blade of grass made me (coincidentally) think of Bethesda. Ahh, those lovable idiots are about to butcher the Fallout series by meddling with it’s already-epic format. But, as we all know, blades of grass are VERY important.

    Why not whip up a game? Let’s call it Annihilation. The gameplay will horribly suck and will be bearable for a maximum of a week, but we’ll be sure to stuff it so full of eye candy that people will be too dazzled to care. No two blades of grass shall be the same!

    Bitching aside :) Great movie. Happy workers make happy products, ha ha!

    umm… nathan? are you on crack? because you’re OVER happy. but anyway, PIXAR is nothing compared to you guys. you’re all really HAPPY! and you use blender. that’s a plus. and you work at the blender institute.

    Are we (the “currently sucks at using blender” people) allowed to come visit? maybe i’ll try to get to amsterdam soon. i’m in the U.S.A., so It’s kinda far. i’ll check the calender.
