Open Source Creative Podcast #8 – Blender Conference 2014

You may have noticed that I skipped a week in airing the podcast. That’s because I was at Blender Conference 2014 in Amsterdam. I mentioned this in the last episode with a question asking how I should cover the conference. I should’ve realized that you, the wonderful audience, would ask me to interview everyone there. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get to everyone… partially because there were over 250 people there and partially because, well, I’m a bit shy.

In any case, I did get some people to allow me to record them. One of the most striking things about the Blender Conference is how many fantastically unconventional ways that Blender is used… and I notice every time I’m there. I hope that these 16 people who were willing to be recorded show a fairly accurate cross-section of that experience:

And a huge, huge thank you to everyone who agreed to be recorded. I can’t express how much I appreciate it.

Inspired depressions, that’s a very good way to put it. I think many can relate. I’m not done with listening to the interviews yet, but so far they’re great. Thanks for sharing.

as a followup, looking up some of these people while they’re interviewing…you talked with some talented people. great stuff. Instead of inspired depression….I think hesitant inspiration is more appropriate. It’s good to see you’re sticking with this podcast. Looking forward to more.

I definitely agree that these are incredibly talented people. With any luck, I’ll be able to see them again at next year’s Blender Conference and get an update. Any other Blenderhead should try to make it out, too. It’s always been well worth my time.
