Mango Kick-Off


All Mango members have now arrived in Amsterdam! They'll be spending this week on a 'kick-off', where'll they have to turn a short script (written by Ton) into an actual movie in only 5 days! Sounds like fun :)

Note: this is just a short script for training / team building purposes. It's NOT the final Mango script (obviously ;-)

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 have to confess to looking at the date and checking it's not April 1st..... then I realised this was a test script to see how they get on. Actually REALLY can't wait to see the results! :)

  2. So is this a different script than the actual mango movie?  It had better be.  btw, is the guy on the left using a wacom inkling?

  3. I wonder if the short will be rel;eased straight away, or if we're going to have to wait for the Mango DVD to come out before we can see it...

  4. That was a very interesting script. :-)  Is that supposed to be the sequel of "Thing Blender Users Would Say" by Andrew Price?

  5. Wait wait wait...! Blender'll request a save on exit? Which futuristic whichcraft is this!?! Ton's really aiming high on that one.
