Gooseberry pilot kick-off – first day


Gooseberry is now in full swing, the story team has arrived and has begun filling a new office with their ideas.

This morning the story team arrived for the kick-off. I’ve temporary rented an empty unit from our neighbors, this office has long walls that can be filled entirely with storyboards and concept art. A great place to work undisturbed from the other activities in Blender Institute – which is mainly Blender coding20140730_114019 and Blender Cloud work right now. I know how sensitive and vulnerable story development can be. Giving the director, writer and and artists an own place might well help a lot in the end!

Plan is to work the months of August and September there, have a final script by the end of August and a final storyboard a month later.

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. Looking forward to the final film! Just don't spoil the story too much before it's released :) Hiding some info behind spoiler banners will be appreciated!
