Blender at the Emmys 2018


Imagine that! Blender + Eevee were present at this year's Emmys awards..

I had the opportunity and pleasure of working with Allucinari in association with Raj Kapoor Productions on the 2018 Emmy awards.

We used Blender and Eevee to create the backgrounds throughout the whole show. Eevee even though in Alpha was very useful because of its speed and ability to get good materials rendering in seconds.

In the linked video is where I did most of my work with Mark D Allen. We created the composition, materials, lighting and animation for the statue.

I also personally also animated the interns animation in Blender and Eevee.

Check out the link to see it animated!

Pretty cool to use Eevee on a international world wide event!

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. I'd imagine that, eventually, Ton Roosendaal and company would be getting some sort of award for creating software that advances science and technology in the arts like film/TV work. Similar to ZBrush, MODO, and Maya.

  2. Blender gets confirmed from higher and higher levels, it becomes a reference and a standard in 3D CG world.
    It was about time.
    Champagne for Ton and Team!

  3. I don't know why I hadn't thought of it till now but I'm now not surprised Blender could replace some of the traditional Live 3D effects packages for news.

    Think of a flipping 3D banner in a sports games where the stats appear and are in motion. Now those numbers could be updated on the fly in blender. Uh oh. I smell some spin off software
