Interview with Ton Roosendaal in National Dutch Newspaper


The Dutch Newspaper 'Het Parool' features a two-page interview with Ton Roosendaal about Tears of Steel. Dutch Blenderheads in the Amsterdam region may be able to grab a copy today or tomorrow! You can also access the full article by zooming in on the scan that's available on the Tears of Steel blog - it's well worth the read.

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. Notably Ton Roosendaal reveals that the next Blender movie will be a FULL LENGTH FEATURE FILM. Wow! That will be cool. He also mentions that about a hundred animators around the world will be working on the film. The movie will be animated, not a hybrid CG-live action movie like Tears of Steel. Too bad, I had hoped they'd make a sci-fi flick like Star Wars, only with better dialogue ;)

      Everything is fine! And the interview in ‘Het Parool’ is great! Blender is moving forward so the films to show/develop it's strength will become more "complete". I'm not talking that "Tears of Steel" is incomplete. I mean the scale. It's inspiring! :)
