This site will be removed and will no longer be available starting with June 16, 2023.
My 2 websites ‘Blender Minutes‘ and ‘Ara’s Tale Movie Site‘ have been hacked recently, which required a complete reinstall of all the data and posts.
I hope the sites are running ok for everyone and I will have an eye on further hacking attempts.

Review on ‘Blender Master Class’ by Ben Simonds
I have been approached by no starch press to write a review about the new blender related book ‘Blender Master Class’ by Ben Simonds. I decided to give it a try and here we go.

A new year …
After a long pause a bit of a life sign, but not yet back to CG or blender.
I realize that it will take yet some time before I find myself the needed focus to tackle CG related projects again. There are so much other interesting things to do …, like a 4 week trip to New Zealand 🙂
Ara’s Tale at the Blender Conference 2012
Yesterday I got confirmation from Ton Roosendaal, that my proposed talk about the production of Ara’s Tale ( Challenges and Production Insights of Single-Handedly Making a Short) is accepted.
I hope to be able to talk to some of you fellow blenderheads there in person 🙂
And now I just hope that Ara’s Tale gets into the official selection for the suzanne film festival …
And I have again reason to open my celebration bottle of Ardbeg Single Malt. Now after almost 2 months of the release of Ara’s Tale, the movie and it’s production is again creating some fuzz.
Soon after the release of Ara’s Tale, I was approached by Ian Hall from the Foundry, who asked me, if I was interested to do a case study for Mari.
I was interested 🙂
Now, this week the article was first featured as production focus on the main site of cgsociety.org. This came as a very pleasant surprise to me.
And today the case study itself is published on Mari’s website. It is an incredible feeling to see one’s project listed on the same page with those huge blockbusters as Avatar, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Hugo …
The aftermath will last be a bit longer though, as I am submitting the movie to several film festivals and hope to get it accepted at at least a few ones. The first one will be the Suzanne Animation Festival at the Blender Conference 2012, where I plan to go there this year.
And there is still work to be done on the making-of , which will be shown together with the movie at a local cinema ( Leokino in Innsbruck) at 30th September.
These are still interesting times, but a lot quieter now than during production …
And then it will be time to let go and turn towards new projects.
