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. Wow, this is incredible! Cosmos Laundromat is such a beautiful animation... it touches me everytme I watch it!
    Congratulations Blender Team!

  2. Congrats, i always tought that movie was like a gap closing, with the looks of stop motion much alike "the where rabit", but all made alive in pure blender CG, outstanding quality.

  3. At last. I knew this open short is far more superior to the rest of movies done by Blender foundation. Very good story telling visual elements, lighting. I hope the rest pieces will be this sophisticated and well thought out.

  4. Congratulations to Ton and all people involved, and supporting the movie, of course (I will continue to support any other episode, whatever), because it really stands out as concept, plot and realization.

    But also because, finally, the huge effort put in the path from freeing blender sources until here (and beyond), gets the attention it deserves.

    This is way more than a excellent movie, it is a story of excellent people and excellent software. Well done.
