By reviewing the recorded videos, I found some footage that I did not film but I think it is worth showing. A kind of Easter egg… Β Enjoy!Β  Ali

    Ton’s a bastard, he does nothing XD

    It’s Christmas, friends. T_T I am so happy.

    Thank you so much, Ali and little girl! πŸ˜€

    Aw. India has grown up a lot since Peach. She kinda looks what my 2nd cousin (one of my bffs) looked like at a few years ago.

    Ben’s up to mischief…. hahaha We should have known.

  9. wo262 Says:

    hey ton. are you going to make Sintel’s trailer?

  10. maddes Says:

    I really really love this shot- its so cute.
    More of this, please πŸ™‚
    esp. there are these nice views from inside, like at 3:10, and (the best thing): 5:38ff, at 7:00, and (the other best thing) 12:50.
    I’ve been watching that small bite over and over, stopping at different frames. You can see a spot of the Dragon, of Sintel, you see a spot in a Forest – and at least, you don’t really know anything, but go a new glimpse…

  11. J. Says:

    Very coincidental, that empty battery, isn’t it? πŸ˜‰

    And Ton is a smart man, knows exactly how to get things done!

  12. s0ndeb0k Says:

    awesome! πŸ˜€

    hey new video!:

  13. JoOngle Says:

    She simply ROCKS! πŸ™‚

    No doubt she’ll be the next CNN reporter, she’s got REAL talent!
    Nice, well done!

  14. Glenn Says:

    Man Ton, there goes your invite. πŸ™‚


  15. Christiaan (AniCator) Says:

    I love the Blender Institute. They show so much but still manage to conceal a lot of information.

  16. vykelt Says:

    I love the maya book being used as a monitor booster. Classic πŸ˜‰

  17. Socceroos Says:


    Hahaha! Well picked up! =D

  18. DwarvenFury Says:

    Awesome look into the institute! And 11 1/2 minutes!!! πŸ™‚

  19. Paulo Bardes Says:

    hey Pablo, here we call the drink “ChimarrΓ£o” πŸ™‚

  20. J. Says:

    Socceroos: I saw it too! πŸ˜€

    Dutchmen are very straightforward; If Melbourne is too hot, it sucks! πŸ˜‰

  21. JustinBarrett Says:

    Yeah, like Ton can do nothing…..I imagine doing nothing would make him grumpy.

  22. MeshWeaver Says:

    this was pretty cool…Durian videos are awesome

    wow, 11mins? and here i was, expecting a 6-8min movie, like Colin had said a few months back…well, cool!

    lol, the empty battery chose a rather inconvenient time to go empty… πŸ˜€ and then it cuts back JUST as Colin finishes… πŸ˜‰

    awesome hand-stand too πŸ˜€

    @RedJay – Hi!

  23. John R. Nyquist Says:

    Good handstand πŸ˜‰

  24. Rob Cozzens Says:

    Several LOLs. I love Ton’s explanation of how a movie gets made: “You put 9 people in a room and 6 months later you have a movie.”

    Great stuff.

  25. Piiichan Says:

    Very nice video indeed. The battery is just awesome!
    Ton is the best LOL πŸ™‚

  26. Blendiac Says:

    Am I missing something here… 11 and a half minutes?!!!

    Last I heard it was going to be 8!

    Blendiac is very happy. πŸ™‚

  27. J. Says:

    Maybe it has very long end credits? πŸ˜›
    Could be the catch, as ”If it sounds too good to be true…” πŸ˜‰

  28. Becca(RedJay) Says:

    @Meshweaver hi! You seem to find me everywhere…. πŸ˜›

    I forgot, I wish I could still do a handstand like that. Last time I could, I didn’t use a computer…. I think you can draw the connection.

  29. Paul Hastings Says:

    Cool stuff. Great interviewer. πŸ˜‰

  30. iCandy Says:

    haha great interview!

    but damn how do you guys manage to stay alive so long in Amsterdam. I went there last summer for a day and I nearly got myself killed in a car accident about 5 times :O you should come to Rotterdam =D it’s only a 20 minutes ride for me πŸ™‚

  31. J. Says:

    The first time I was in Amsterdam I got nearly run over by a tram, so you’re not the only. πŸ˜‰

    How they stay alive?
    Quite simple: The more nerd you are, the less you come outdoors.
    As simple as that! πŸ˜‰

  32. Simon Says:

    I only had to watch out for crazy bicyclists when I was there

  33. J. Says:

    And now Katie Melua, performing: ”Too many bicycles in Amsterdam” πŸ˜‰

  34. Harry Abreu Says:

    My friends and I liked a lot the book that you use to support your monitor on the first interview πŸ˜›

  35. Armando SΓ‘nchez Says:

    I love Ton’s explanation!! πŸ˜€ LOL

    And the Maya book!! Let me tell you I have some 3dmax books somewhere in my room… just getting dusty πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ LOL

    Did you see Colin’s chair? Does Colin have the best chair in the institute? LOL πŸ˜€

  36. Hannah Slevin-Vegdahl Says:

    I think Ton sold me on becoming a producer.

    I also got very excited when Colin mentioned Thai food. We got to enjoy Thai food with Colin, Lee, and Nathan when we visited on our honeymoon. Good memories. I can’t wait to see the finished project.
