Interview with Andy on German TV website


andy-screen.jpgThe German TV news-mag Heute has published an article and a six-minute video interview with @ndy about Elephants Dream.

The article starts with:

The road to Andreas Goralczyk, Art Director of "Elephants Dream", brings us almost one kilometer into a deep forest. There is an unlighted footpath here, in Grenzach-Wyhlen near Basel, that is used mainly by schoolkids and painters. Maybe this is an explanation for what Goralczyk likes to draw most: Monsters.

From the garden of his parents, Andy talks about his role in the creation of ED, about how it came into existence and about what he thinks of the future of Open Source in the art community.

The ZDF is one of the biggest german broadcasts, but this interview/article is only available online and hasn't been shown on TV. Of course, everything is in German - maybe someone would care to write a translation?

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. wooow, first time I see andy speaking german!

    I got nothing from what you've said in that interview, but it look soooo professional, and that garden seems to be a nice place to blend =)

    Congratulations my friend!!

  2. Nice to see Andy in that Interview.
    ...the interview told me something special: the questions of the journalist shows that the most people still don´t know what is or mean open source. But we see that ED brings the people to ask for that.
    So, lets have another Orangemovie...... ;)

  3. Woah, Wu-man made it onto the main header of blendernation? Not sure how professional it looks, but well, that'll make it all the better. People will see the freedom that comes with open source, We can put Wu-man coming out of a blender on the front page and not worry about it. After all, we're not selling anything
