Jeremy arrived!

on April 1st, 2010, by Ton

Warning: this is an april 1 post without silly jokes!
Jeremy has arrived already on the 30st of March, forgot to post it yesterday, that’s why. Jeremy will help us the last three months as an animator. He’s from Sydney Australia (too many aussies here!), and worked with Matt Ebb for Promotion Studios on Lighthouse and Kajimba. Great guy, awesome animator!


(BTW: next to arrive next week: Joe Eagar, Blender developer! And then we’re complete… I hope!)

    Australians are natural travellers so no wonder there are so many around. But I think amsterdam has developed an attraction field recently, that is true!
    I’ll keep it predictable:
    Go team GO!!

  23. TheANIMAL Says:

    i’m just glad the BF (or is the institute?) has the finance to pull together a team like this

    its a pretty big team

  24. frank_robernson Says:

    How will he have jet lag? He is an animator time is sort of muddled anyway right?

    I’m surprised how big these teams get each year, I also believe blender community has taken over the world with the low frequency which is nice.

    Which I saw the peach projects work on a pan-flit in my mail …box and I live in new zeal and?How odd.Maybe someone is doing some fake advertising for maya…

  25. J. Says:

    Mwaahhhh, I suppose it’s just a Dutch guy who went to the barber… VOILA! 😛

    Good luck everyone, I hope you’re all still on schedule. 😀

  26. J. Says:

    Btw, Ton, it’s ”30th”, not ”30st.” 😉

  27. Agus Says:

    Pablo Vazquez is not a dedicated joker, so this is so exciting!! Bravo Joeedh!!!

    And yes, i like the particle system on your head Jeremy!

  28. RH2 Says:

    Good luck Aussies. You will need it, I just saw “How to train your Dragon” and it is kick a**. Dragons and teenagers, awsome hair and skin! Funny how similar projects come up at the same time. Great to see such amazing talent around a free app.

  32. Rudiger Says:

    Sure it’s a joke! It goes – how many Aussies does it take to make a Dutch open movie…

  33. creek23 Says:
