It stays only two weeks to help Gooseberry Project by doing active promotion for it.
But I only saw articles about Gooseberry on Blender and CG forums and social networks groups about CG.
It is a project about an open movie made with a free open source software (able to produce games and 3d prints).
But it seems that no site about movies or about free open source softwares is talking about it if it is not directly Blender or 3D related.
And there is probably less publicity about it on games and 3D printing forums.
For example, no article on Libre Graphics World about Gooseberry fund raising or Blender Cloud.
It seems that press is waiting end of April to talk about it.
Probably, lots of journalists of libre graphics are occupied at Libre Graphics Meeting.
But it is urgent to diffuse information that Gooseberry exists.
A full length feature film made of computer generated images.
And when people asks you how is it made; you answer : “with a Free Open Source Software.”
I will not talk about people who already know Blender and the Blender Cloud.
i only want to say that Blender Cloud and free open content of an open movie can interest a huge amount of people.
I mean : a mesh is mesh. It can be used for a movie animated character, be converted as a nomal map for a game character and be 3D printed.
But I don’t think that a huge amount of people know Blender.
I know there are thousands of people, everyday, on Blender sites according to statistics.
But are statistics able to say how many are there by errors, searching a robot to make smoothies ?
How many people are coming on blenderartists to only obtain the answer about their unique blender project of the year ?
it is not because we are considering ourselves like artists that we are disconnected to the rest of the world.
Blender is used by kids, their teachers, scientists…
Is it illegitimate to talk about Gooseberry elsewhere ? Of course, it is not !
So, just do it !
