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.
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!
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!
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?
@Mateus: you can reach the Blender shop at [email protected].
@Bart: Tkx! This will be some money worth spending!
$61 CDN though... exchange rates killing us over here in the great white north. Worth it though. I have the other two. Awesome stuff.
It cost me 56.83 $CND. Maybe there is a difference if you choose USD or Euro for payement.
@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. :)
Very good news ! 1500 names in the credits... The credits will be as long as the movie itself !o)
How much did ED and BBB raise during their preorder campains?
So you expect me to count all the names? :P
Woo! just pre ordered my copy :D (last minute but did it :) )
Btw are they gonna add my name from my eshop account?
I got mine :)
Best of luck to the Durian team! (Although you'll do great without it :P)
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 :)
