Bart Veldhuizen

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. Hey! That's my reel!
    Thank you/gracias all for the nice comments.

    @terry_wallwork: it's mostly blender. I used after effects just for a couple of old shots (for example, the part of the blond guy on the 3D background was made during the production of Elephants Dream, so the compositor wasn't too powerful and I didn't know how to use it either :-)
    But today everything that is in this reel can be made with Blender easily. In fact, I've been using only Blender for my motion graphics work for the last year and a half without problems.
    You can check more recent videos in my Vimeo stream, all of them made using only Blender.

    @Create3D: Sorry, but the reel was intended for people younger than 60. I'll upload a new version with jazz or tango and less fps for the elderly :-p

    oh, btw. For that old 360º shot of the blond guy I received some valuable tips from a very talented young man that looks like Carl Sagan (according to malefico) and happens to be the director of Sintel ;-).

    And now, the first troll comment
    3, 2, 1...

  2. Ton! I do i become a moderator on the blender site?
    I wish I could be a moderator on the blender site.
    some video would not make it on the front page of the site....

    Please make me a moderator...

  3. WOW! buena reel Gez, impresionante , Tecmas, Le editorial, y la musica le va muy bien. Very good reel. impressive dynamic animations. i like the "la editorial" stuff specially. good to see you here . I am still learning blender so you have to be carefull with me XDD nahh, seriously i also like the colors of the animation.
    Blender rules !

  4. Eh! Zarpado! que no se te suba la fama a la cabeza y no respondas más mis emails.
    Te necesito humilde!!!

    Los comerciales de la librería son los mejores, y si no me equivoco completamente hecho en blender. Felicitaciones!.

  5. @gespertino: Sorry, but the reel was intended for people younger than 60.
    Damn. I'd better not watch it then!
    -Seriously, this is a great demo. I posted a couple of days back a comment about another demo in which I tried to spell out exactly what you've done. This is attractive, punchy, and shows just enough of each piece to whet the appetite, without being long enough to be boring. Well done.
    Great track selection, by the way.

  6. Rev: Do you mean the cutout girl walkcycle? I'm not sure if I understoodd what you mean...

    If you're actually talking about that, it's just a test. There are a couple of old tests that I put in the reel to cover some holes and maybe I should replace.
    This reel was created (in a rush, I must admit) for the Che!Blender conference with some stuff made with Blender.
