No Film Fund Money for Gooseberry


The Dutch Film Fund has declined a grant to the Gooseberry project. As a result, they're now going for the short movie scenario: the first 'World' of the story will be released in July.

We’ve always worked with two scenarios – the bigger one with Film Fund support – and a smaller one based on the crowdfunding and Blender Cloud subscription income. We now have the news that the Netherlands Film Fund will not support the project. Bummer! The Fund feedback was that it’s partially because it’s not a real short film or coherent short story (but the beginning of something bigger), partially because we already started work on it and have a lot of own funding already.
