BBB conquers the Netherlands

Posted in Events, Peach Press by Ton

Here’s a list of events that will happen the next 2 months in the Netherlands around Blender and BBB. Most of this is a result of our successful BBB launch in the Netherlands, which resulted in a cumulation of invitations… I’ve stopped accepting any more now! :)

    It’ll be a nice reward for anyone who worked so hard on BBB to assist to one/many of these festivals.
    Hopefully it’ll also lead to more professional use since so many producers, distributors and others will be exposed to it. Every user and developer too would benefit from that.

    Have fun Ton :)
