Without further ado, here’s the BlenderNation Journal for the last day of the Blender Conference 2006. The absolute highlight of the day was the presentation of the Plumiferos project; these people are really working on an amazing project. In order of appearance, the interviews are: Tony Mullen (author of ‘Introduction to Character Animation in Blender’), Colin Litster, Samo Korosec, Ivan Hoffman and Manuel Perez of Plumiferos, Jason van Gumster and finally the man himself: Ton.
Update: hi-res Quicktime file added
Producing these videos was much more work than I had anticipated, but I did have a lot of fun making them. I hope that they have given you all a good impression of the event and of the people who were there.
As a final note, several people have asked me to consider posting directly to Google Video instead of offering huge files for download; I hope this works better for you all!
