Hey all Blenderheads,
ddwagnz and I have put our heads together and decided that it would be a good idea to hold a Blender LAN meet somewhere in Christchurch, New Zealand for all Blenderheads young and old.
Does that sound interesting? We sure think so - but we want to know whether you’re interested, what you would be interested in doing, and so on.
If we raise enough interest, then we WILL organise a Blenderthon to happen sometime during the Term 2 School Holidays.
So reply with ideas, comments, suggestions.
We want you to come!
If you want a sort of basic outline to show what we could do, here’s a short list:
- All the Blenderheads arrive, set up their computers and connect them to the network which will be running, then talk to one another.
- Everyone does a couple of preorganised Speed Contests, including Speed Modelling, Speed Animation, etc.
- We all trade files such as models, materials, render clients, additional modeling programs, etc.
- We split into teams and work on speed contests in teams, using Verse or some other network program.
- We all have a BBQ or shared lunch of some sort
- We discuss various techniques for doing stuff, for example a few quick practical tuts on modelling human faces, or something (preorganised)
At this point, until we gain interest, we’re not sure where it would be held
