The Making of User Lib


Did you see the new video for the Free Software Foundation that Bassam Kurdali produced with Blender? He now shares a detailed report of the creation process, outlining the tools he used, explaining the techniques and sharing all production files.

Last October Libby Reynish from the Free Software Foundation commissioned Urchin to make a short film in celebration of the FSF’s 30th anniversary, to support their annual funding campaign. We were thrilled at the chance to work on messaging we care about, that’s so close to our own mission. The short deadline and limited budget made for some interesting challenges. And of course we would produce this film (like everything else we do) with Free Software, especially Blender.

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.
