Wow!!! Some familiar names there and some I don't know!!! Cool Mix!!!!
Well done guys!!! this is going to be one hell of a film!!!!!! YAY!!
Nice! BTW, can't wait for the new features! Not to mention learning from the superb rigs of Nathan.
Although, I had expected to find that Andy would have been a part of this movie. I look forward to learning about all these great new 3D artists!
will miss Bassam ! did an amazing job in the two films
Congratulations to all! Can't wait to see what you produce.
Congratulations everyone! I agree with dusty, this is going to be one hell of a film.
Ooo Veghdahl+Dansie+Maeter??? This is craZY! Congrats to the ones I don't know, I know they picked you for a reason.
Great expectations for this one.
Yay! Soenke and Ben are both on the team. However, I've been most excited about Colin, I remember watching all the clips on his site like 2 years ago, it was some great inspriation.
Nice looking team, I did notice however that there seems to be a missing modeler.
I see Ms Angela Guenette for character models but i don't see anyone for environments.
Just curious I guess lol, or maybe you bunch already have plans to have the story take place along the country side. ^^
Wicked team - I guess they'll try and use all that software on the new Animux distro too?
Congrats to the new Durian Members! ;)
congrats to all that made the team...
Woohoo, Nathan again! He's my hero.
Hopefully he'll make another hilarious documentary of some kind. :P
Nice to see Angela Guenette in team, she has amazing portfolio. Had hope for one or two more fulltime developers, but guess Ton and Brecht will deliver as usual =)
Well one way to secure one dev. and more artists would be to make sure that the presales campaign hits the roof. The pricing should secure that most people will be able to help funding the project.
Great additions to the team...looking forward to getting the DVD...
Yeah, let's hear that again Kunisch. Throw money at blender. Get those pre-sale DVD's and goodies and training materials. Maybe even just throw money to those developers themselves.
Awesome team, I wonder if their going to need external animators...
Well, it was great to shoot for it! Thanks, Ton, Colin, and David for considering me among the large pool of applicants! Cheers and blessings upon the Durian Project team!!!!!!! You rock!
Excellent team guys!
More hugs from Nathan & beer with Lee!
Congratulations everybody! All these people are top notch Blender artists, and it's going to be incredibly exciting to see what they come up with!
Nathan's back? Cool.
Wow, that Angela Guenette really knows her stuff! I just saw her demoreel. Very impressive. It's going to be interesting to see what this collaboration produces.
Brilliant! Awesome team! All the best everyone of ya you will kick butt I know u will :)
PS: I'm EXTRA proud of course because Angela (who won the Blending Life contest), made them team :) And everyone should check her showreel it rocks.
Holy wow! Every single member of the team is amazing! Angelas stuff blew me away. And Martin Lodewijk!!
Bring on the pre-orders! I'll find the money somehow, I want my name in the credits of this sucker.
Yeah Lee! Congrats all, and it's great to see Nathan and Lee returning.. but no co-producer to buy bread? What a gyp. Good luck guys and gal.
felicidades a todos los seleccionados...
espero que pronto inicie la realizaciÃ³n del corto...
Congratulations to the new team !
Happy to see that we got a female member - and most qualified one I must add.
Way to go !
Indeed , I am not very informed about great Blender artist names, but I was amazed to find this from her some time ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmHIUFIKw-E It's done fully with blender (some of her works are with other tools she handles outstandingly as well, by all means) , and the demo reel... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dU2YSKGKpU you probably all knew about her, I just didn't till some weeks ago... I was *amazed* . I don't really know several of the other names, but everything makes me think this is a such a group of aces...
Well done Ben! Great to see that your excellent work is going to be part of Durian. :-)
Looks like a great team. I didn't realize Angela worked on Everyone's Hero. My boys love that movie, although I don't think they'll be able to watch Durian till their a bit older
wow congratulation this great team!!!
