Ton Comments on Orange Progress


Ton has posted some comments on the progress of the Orange movie project on the Orange blog. So far, things are going well and he has secured one month of extra funding. It looks like the premiere will be on March 16th or 23rd.


(About time for a short producer's update)

I'm just back from another visit to the studio, and can only say it is truely amazing what goes on there! It is incredible inspiring to see scenes and shots increasing in quality step by step, and ending up in something that actually looks like a real animation movie. :) And not only that, each and every blend file the artists make is worth viewing and evaluating… the database we're building is going to become a premium quality asset of the DVDs we will publish.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. It was nice to see some more info on the Orange project, especially from Ton. If they ever do this again though, I think it would be cool if there were someone who is responsible solely for keeping the community up-to-date. You can't blame the guys for being busy, but the rest of us are itching for news :P You know, a few photos, screenshots, etc, would be cool. Anyway keep up the work dudes, and you B@rt.
