In the next 2 months it looks like the Big Buck Bunny project will be getting a lot more publicity. Ton has had a lot of invitations for festivals and conferences etc, due to the successful release of the BBB project.
Issue 106 of 3D World is themed around free and open-source software. Editor Jim Thacker sent us a few opening spreads and as a bonus, he threw in the full article they published on Big Buck Bunny in issue 103. I love these guys ;-)
Jan Morgenstern, the composer for Big Buck Bunny, has released the complete score for Big Buck Bunny. Also completing his first post on the BBB Site! Continue reading
Just a little over two years after the release of Elephants Dream, the Blender Institute have today released their second phenomenal accomplishment: Big Buck Bunny. Aimed at further developing Blender by providing it with great new animation tools and high-end fur rendering (both available in the recently released Blender 2.46), it will undoubtably put both Blender and Open Source in general on the radar of more 3D hobbyists and professionals around the world.
You will find in-depth information about the project on their new website www.bigbuckbunny.org, and more importantly, you can download both the full version of the movie in HD quality and all the production files right now!
To everyone involved: respect!
Something’s afoot on peach.blender.org, and we all know what :-)
From the Blender Foundation:
The official release of the BBB movie files will be friday at noon. Will be big fun!
If you would like the HD version and also support the Blender Foundation, go to the E-Shop to purchase the complete BBB kit.
Ton just posted the following dates on the Peach blog:
- May 17 or 18: Release of Blender 2.46
- May 20th: DVD Arrival, shipping
- May 30 or 31: Internet release of Big Buck Bunny

Tonight at 7:30pm on NL3, Ton and Sacha will be interviewed in the popular Dutch TV program ‘De wereld draait door‘. I’ll upload the interview to dotSUB tomorrow so we can have it properly subtitled for all non-Dutch speakers.
Oh, and I see that ‘The Big Lebowski’ will be on at 8.30pm – it’s gonna be a great TV night :)
