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.


    • Difference is, that guy says up front "OK. it's not Pixar quality..."  As well as Sintel, Beorn worked on Happy Feet 2.  He really knows his stuff, and based on the clips shown seems to be able to explain it too.

      But I don't know whether he's hilarious to listen to or not...

  1. You throw like a girl.. hehe lol... eh... Great going Beorn! This is definitely a series I'd love to watch! Good stuff! I can absolutely recommend it!
