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. Nice Reel =)
    By the way, nice beat! I remember hearing this sampled and used in other or the same instrumental. Who is this from ? Aesop Rock or something ?!... Can't remember, let me know =)

  2. Hey dudes, thanks for the kind words!

    peter/Jahmaica: The audio is from 'Onra' ( ). I think it's actually sampled from old chinese pop records found in Vietnam.

    The noise on that track doesn't bother me, but I can see how it can be off-putting to other people, so I'm replacing the track now - thanks for the heads-up.


  3. Matt Ebb: Thanks! Now I remember ;) One of my friends made me listen to it, on his car player. Thanks!
    C'mon noise on hip hop is classic! Vinyl crackle... got to love it =D Dont substitute it, people nowadays doesnt understand...

  4. Matt great work, is it all Blender? i wasn't sure about the geko. I absolutely love that shot of the sign. The lens flare is stunning.

  5. That's a very intimidating reel Matt. It seems you've been involved in basically every commercial Blender project. Fantastic work. Keep it up and you'll have studios fighting over you :D
