Bart Veldhuizen

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. Great news, yes!

    But there is a problem with the vote page of the site:

    I have got 3 times an error message not allowing to vote,and I have finally been able to vote using an other E-mail adress... weird.

    Obviously,I have given 5 stars to Elephants Dream !o)


  2. Well, you're lucky.

    Using FireFox
    - First time I clicked on "Watch & Vote" it popped up a window and it was closed after 1 sec.
    - Second time, the window popped up but it was empty.

    Using IE
    - Third time, it returned me a 404 error 8(

    Maybe next time...

  3. To anyone who has been having trouble with the site: I have been having a lot of trouble with pages not loading, but if a wait a minute and push refresh or click on the link again, after a few times it works. So I don't think it's a browser/OS problem. Keep trying until you get through--do it for ED !!

  4. The bitfilm site doesn't work properly.... no matter what I try, it keeps on giving error pages on certain times, so I'm not able to vote...

  5. Horrable site. Web2.0 does need better engineers.
    Movies are also not to good . So ED hould have a good change... :) Nice to see the story of ED is not so typical (and boring) as *all* the other ones. We used to call them type 1 and type 2 movies. "No really? the man turns out to be a cockrouch, wauw". "So then it ends like it starts and can be played in an endless loop?" (hmmm wait a minute...)
    I liked the Honda zoomer, but that's a commercial.
