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. I am *so* relieved to hear there will be real actors on the voices. A great voice actor can sink an animation... or make if soar. Time to check imdb to see if these two have been in any English subtitled movies / shows. :)

  2. @Blendiac: A film called "Zwartboek", directed by Paul Verhoeven, should be an international film, not by knowledge but judgement, they both play along, you can try that...


  3. @Blendiac: I believe that film is directed by Paul Verhoeven, if I'm not mistaken, it will probably help you find it easier...

  4. Great! It will be a great movie, I am sure. I hope we will also get the filmed performance of the voice actors when the movie will come out.

  5. amazing,

    A blender movie with their voices, I always the DWDD (a very popular program in holland) and Haline almost always
    sit there.

    Over two years par example johny depp as a voice for a Open movie Project

    Again, just amazing.
