You can still support the Caminandes 2 project by purchasing the movie and project files from the Blender e-shop. The team has added the option to purchase a download-only package at a €4 discount now. You’ll miss out on the too-cute USB card though :)
The Caminandes team has just released their second short, Caminandes: Gran Dilemma. It’s really great and I laughed out loud several times :) Congratulations guys!!!
Caminandes 2 is now being released on Google Hangout. Come in and join!
The Caminandes 2 team have entered their last two weeks of work – the llama will make its return on Friday, November 22! Also, the project isn’t fully funded yet, so please consider supporting them by buying the USB card (see below).
A mesmerizing collection of sounds recorded at the Blender Institute by Andy Goralczyk. Can you guess the sounds in the first fragment?
Ton Roosendaal just announced that Mathieu Auvray will direct the next Blender Institute open movie, Gooseberry.
Mathieu has proven to be a very talented artist (check out some of his work) and I’m looking forward to seeing him leave his mark on this project.
Please join me in congratulating Mathieu!

The Blender Foundation has just launched the new Blender.org website! After seven years, it’s time for a facelift and revamp of the messaging.
The Caminandes Open Movie project keeps spawning extremely useful Blender additions and fixes: copying and pasting curves, a new shadeless view, correct selection of bones from dopesheet channels and an FPS counter in the video sequencer. Nice!
Of course, the updates are already available – details are on the Caminandes blog.
