Hello people!

I submitted a video to Userfarm's Videomaker festival 2011. I was just announced as the 1st winner of 300 submission in animation/motion graphics category.

I want to give a big thanks to the awesome Blender developers, the community and everybody who help keeps Blender alive. It's really is a joy to see Blender taking more and more space in the 3d community and being appreciated as a "professional" tool.

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 think when this video was first posted here I suggested you put it in a festival. I'm glad to see you did - it deserves the recognition.


    i know there are some users planning on making a "NPR Blender Hub" of some sort. Most likely will be somehting like
