We just shipped about 1700 dvds to our loyal investors in the Blender community. People in Europe can expect it in their mailboxes this week, Dutchies this Friday, but outside of EU probably next week.
The last weekend of may we'll do the official web launch of the film. Many mirrors have been collected already - which will be needed for the expected attention - so we'll make that weekend a great on line release party! Until then everyone can enjoy their own premiere at their home cinemas. Thanks! :)
Now that 2.46 is officially released, the pain of waiting has been lessened. Can't wait for arrival in a few weeks.
Wow!! I can't wait to mine!! My precious!
The pain of waiting is finaly over.
This week i get my BBB FINALY.
Do not worry Ton some day Hollywood will be knocking at the door, I hope that you will the stomach to answer yes.
watching the mailbox :)
Does anyone know if there will be a bittorrent option to take the strain off the servers?
SCHWEEET! But I have to wait till next week to get it here in Canada! BAH!
Chris: Someone will get a bittorrent up, I am sure.
Hurray ! So, it mean I will watch it soon ? this week ? 'm just happy about it :)
1 700 * 34 Euros = 90 491.68 U.S. dollars
Awesome! What a great week, I will be looking out for mine! :)
Good fun packing all those. still it's almost the end. We will get to see the creation sooooooooooon!!!
Man I wish I had the money to pre-order it, but I'll definitely order it later in the year when things are better my side.
WELL DONE GUYS! Thanks for all your hard work. Also, Blender 2.46 ROCKS!
I am sure this is going to be a great movie!
Finally, I canÂ´t wait to have mine
Did not yet had the change to try 2.46 out, but can't wait till I'll have BBB this week. I could restrain myself to visit the Blender Foundation this afternoon to pick one up, but it was hard. ;-)
i'm so excited... and i just can't hide it...
Peach server = death. Cant get to it. Hmmmmm...
@GustavTheMushroom: Me too... :-(
Cool can't wait for the final DVD!!!
Mmmmhh great ! I can't wait to dissect the files : i hope it is a good way to learn...
And of course the movie itself !
Bedankt, ik kijk er rijkhalzend naar uit!
Go team blender! Look forward to receiving it soon in the UK :D
Great news !
I will plug my post box on my burglar alarm !o)
Well done, all getting it to hear, cant wait for the web release!
YES!! can't wait!
Don't forget everyone: When it goes up, make sure you chip in by seeding the BitTorrent to help take the load off the servers!
Heeeey, congrats! That's one beloved bunny. :D
Oh, and I'll be seeding, as long as my provider doesn't throttle my ass!
*sheds a single tear*
its finally here...*sniff*
i cant wait....to download it online....rofl
sorry blender found. i'd love to donate but i is poor but i do give blender a good name lol
now that i think about it i should buy it....once i get money....
I have been waiting this for soooo looooooonnnnnnngggggggggggggg
1700? That's a lot of bunnies. Probably there were just 2 bunny DVDs in the room the night before...
Hah, Polish labourer
It arrived!!! The 1080 avi on the second dvd is so crisp, its fantastic! Its a huge contrast to the dvd video, the new particle system really paid off!
I just got mine in the post today and I've been geeking out all day! My daughters loved it (16 months and 3 years) - especially the 3 year old who laughed out loud all the way through.
The film is, of course, funny and furry.
The DVD is a great product for so many more reasons though:
- Great "making of"
- Pixar-style bloopers
- (One I've never seen before) Commentary from multiple creative perspectives - animation, technical etc. GENIUS Hollywood take note. The director's view is of general interest, but those interested in learning about lightingwill only be interested in the lighting director's perspective.
- Another great innovation - 4 view of the film (storyboard, Blender POV, Final render...) BRILLIANT!
- HD version for PC playback.
- THE FULL SOURCE!
- And last, but not least for the fuzzy feeling - my name in the credits for buying the DVD in advance!
Of course, Blender itself has also been improved as a direct result of this project.
GREAT JOB GUYS - GREAT VISION TON!
Yeah ! I have got mine !
Great movie, and awesome authoring !
These animals are so funny. I liked the movie a lot. I have watched it 3 times on my computer, 6 times on my own TV, and shown it to the family on my parents TV set...
The music is great! Well done Jan.
The comments are fine too.
Peach Team, congratulations and thank you, you have done an amazing work !
