We wanted to announce the release of the first episode of our sci-fi show, CULTURESPORT. It's a web-series, made in Blender, about a chat-bot who becomes self-aware and recruits an army of teenagers to take over the world.
You can watch the full episode on our Kickstarter page, where we've launched a campaign to fund the first full season, a -series of shorts to be released in the year 2020.
Our first episode, takes place in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 1995. The seas are rising. A reclusive engineer has come to town, promising to invent a new system of dikes and dams, using a computer that harnesses the power of dreams. A pair of twins are selected for the study—gabber kids from the local hardcore scene. But as they get sucked deeper into a digital dream world, they realize the inventor's true goal isn't to protect Rotterdam at all.
If you enjoyed the episode, please consider sharing it with others who you think might also appreciate it or supporting our campaign directly.
We also wanted to give a special thanks to all the users, developers, instructors and supporters of blender, who without this would not be possible. Our entire team has learned so much almost exclusively through the online blender community and we hope to be able to tap into more of its incredible talent as we continue to develop this series and expand as a studio.
