Big Buck Bunny Premiere

43

Last night I went to the premiere of Big Buck Bunny in Amsterdam and it was a blast! The movie was amazing, the audience loved it (they even laughed - imagine THAT! ;-), the Peach team looked extremely happy and the party was great. I decided to have fun and talk to everyone instead of doing interviews etc, so all I can offer is an impression of the evening. Oh, and I didn't tape the movie - you'll have to wait just a little longer for that!

  4. @Mataii: create an account on Vimeo.com and you can download the original Quicktime movie (which is big - over 300MB). I don't have time to create file formats for everybody..

  5. @John Doe (interesting IP address ;-): I'd count six (if you include the composer), or eight (if you include technical support)? Interesting how Jan Morgenstern is missing from the Team page on the Peach blog by the way! I hadn't noticed that until now...

    And of course, I am sure they forgot to put the actors in the credit.

    What about the bunny? And the squirrels? And the chinich... chinchichi... round fat furry rodent?
    Did they mention that no nuts were hurt during the making of the movie? Eh?

    At least the movie is out soon, and so should be the Official Peach Blender build. :)

  7. Nice work guys. I can't wait to see it, congratulations to the whole Peach Team on a job well done.
