Mango: First Production Day in Studio


The Mango team reports on their first production day at Amsterdam Studios.

Sebastian writes:

Today was the first day of production in the greenscreen studio at No filming yet, but building the sets for the first day of shooting on monday. Romke brought in his awesome stuff, 2 truck loads full of assets, props and sets. The team had some really hard work to do today!
The studio is super great, with a giant greenscreen, a white limbo, separate rooms, and first floor for catering. The guys from even put a Blender logo at the door! :)

Result: random video with lots of green pixels. Plus some russian punk from “Green Team”.

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. Hah!
    So "Opname" is pronounced just the same as the German "Aufnahme"? xD
    Taking on. Interesting litteral translation. I'd have chosen taking up, heh.
    Nice start of the set!

  2. Very nice, but I'd be glad if they won't put Russian music next time. This adds unnecessary cultural connections not everyone might like. Only a small portion of people will understand the words anyway.

  3. I hit play , I was like yeah nice thing to watch in my day of then I saw it was like 3 minutes , I was like man come on guys , you got it all .... just put anything , Ton talking about something behind the wheel , just random guru talk at ANY art museum ... anything ....:)

  4. yes thank you this is SO VEERY EXCITING , I wanted to do a crash Spaceship : SO NOW I CAN thanks . WILL you do the same tutorial in CYCLES ???

  5. Petr Utinek on

    cool vid I'm really happy they decided to share all about production with public .can't wait to see more :)

  6. Very exciting!  I love to watch as Ton et al push the boundaries of Blender's abilities (not to mention do some simply fantastic and creative work) during each of these productions.  To everyone involved, good luck and have fun!  Can't wait to follow these updates and see the final movie!
