A few days back, there was this promo video of C4D that I watched and was awe-struck and inspired by the simplicity of message and a jaw-dropping demo overall. With too much excitement and envy, I posted on Twitter a call for a similar content for Blender (given it doesn't have a decent features demo yet, aside from the awesome SIGGRAPH reel last year).
If you've been following my posts, you'll see it posted on my Twitter post history.
Truly, Blender deserves and there's no reason it shouldn't a decent demo that will practically tell an audience what it is and what it can do, deviating from the common norm of 'complexity' and being 'non-standard' and things like that. You get what I mean.
Let's see how this progresses and hoping to see Blender emerge and be seen the way we, the community, have conceived through the years.
Consequently, SIGGRAPH is nearing and we are accepting submissions again (video and stills) for inclusion on the Blender 2012 SIGGRAPH Reel. Deadline of submissions in on July 21, 2012.
