Blender Demo Reel 2013


The Blender Foundation has released the 2013 demo reel, which was used extensively at SIGGRAPH this year. Compilation and editing by Mike Pan, who has once again done an amazing job. Music by Jan Morgenstern. There are so many works in here that we've never seen! What is your favorite part?

Update: if you're curious about the playlist - the credits are in order (with duplicates removed).

Bart Veldhuizen

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. It was an honor to submit for the first time, even if I did not get chosen! I did a challenging architectural animation for an internship. The client loved it!

  2. Very nice demo reel. It is fun to be able to look forward to this every year for SIGGRAPH, and see how Blender (and the talented artists using it) have progressed. I was surprised to see so many shots from R'ha, as I was under the impression that Blender was only used for a few shots, in the city scenes. It is cool to find out that Blender was used for more than just the city though.

    Off-topic, the "Pilot" header image today is awesome.

  3. Congratulations to all the artists who are work on this show reel!.
    Excellent work !!! I feel so proud to Blender Artist.
