Blender at - Help Needed


lca-poster.jpgThe Australian will be held at the University of New South wales, in Sydney, Australia from Januari 15 - 20. Part of their program is the 'Open Day' on the 18th. The organisation has invited Elephants Dream lead artist Matt Ebb to give a Blender demo, but he could use your help.

Matt writes:

I've been invited, and have agreed to give a short demo of Blender / Elephants Dream at the open day, but I've recently learned that there will also be 40 or so tables set up and available throughout the day for each project to give demos and have a chat with people.

[...] I can be at a table for a short while, but I'm really busy on that day and I have to leave early. So, are there any Blender users in Sydney who would like to come down and hang out there in the afternoon? That way there won't just be a pathetic looking empty Blender desk as people come by.

This sounds like a good opportunity to meet some fellow Blenderheads! For more information check out Matts blog.

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.
