Final day to get your Durian movie credit!


durianTon Roosendaal writes: Tomorrow, september 15th, the first phase of the Durian pre-order campaign will end. Everyone who orders and pays for the DVD on the 15th will still get a name credit in the official movie scroll.

Current total is 1550 already, which is totally awesome! :)

The deadline date will be treated flexibly for payments coming in a few days later, but please do make your order today or tomorrow latest!

Obviously we will need support and pre-orders after the 15th of September as well. After all, it's about enabling us to improve Blender! To credit all the later orders as well, we'll make an extended and complete 'thank you' listing with everyone who pre-ordered, up to the premiere, on a special DVD section.

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. wow 1550 is already a great count:)
    ..hope You'll even make it to 2000 until the deadline is over!
    Since i can't wait to get this dvd and its all connected I'll say thanks to everyone who participated in this too and therefor make it possible to get blender onto a new level in technical matters, artistic quality and in terms of popularity.
    I'm sure with all those wonderful talented people on the team, Durian will become an awesome piece of movie-art!

    So thanks to everyone for their vision and contribution to this project,
    and hats off to the whole durian-team, the developers, the people keeping the sites alive (including this one :) )
    and last but not least the ingenius TON!!!
    Much love and appreciation!

    Best regards

  2. Yeah congrats on the count so far!!

    I REALLY wish that I could get my credit in the titles but sadly it's just not happening for me ATM. I'm far too broke. :(

    BUT! I plan on buying the DVD later so at least that will help!

    But honestly, this is fantastic what you have done so far!! Well done!

  3. Can Elephants Dream and Big Buck bunny still be bought?
    What will I be supporting then? All will go to durian?
    And can I get them shipped all together?
    Actually.. where can I get these type of questions answered?

  4. @Eric: It's probably different banks using different conversion rates. :/

    The dvd's cost itself should remain the same with either currency in the e-shop, I believe. :)

  5. Man... Plus taxes... Not enough cash on my PayPal and it takes at least 3 days for a bank in Austria to transfer money from one of its own accounts to another of its own accounts :P Withdrawing banking fees takes half a day... But as much as this sucks: our prices always include taxes :)
