The wait is over. The Blender Foundation's 3rd open movie is done! It premiered,  and is ready for download here. The DVD should be available soon. I pre-ordered that, and am really excited to watch all the extras.

Congrats to the team of artists and developers who made it happen. I know from experience how hard it is to put together a film project -- of any size.

And my heartfelt thanks for the hard work on Blender 2.5. It's getting closer to 2.6 and it's looking great!

Support Garden of Hedon on IndieGoGo

Kangas Kahn Films, LLC, is going back into production this fall with its latest feature "Garden of Hedon." I don't have many details, but I did hear the director say it's a mystery/horror with some elements like "the best ten minutes of Eyes Wide Shut." So, I guess anything goes in this one.

They're looking for some extra financing, so please check out the site and consider a donation. There are come cool perks, including exclusive production updates and your name in the credits. From the IndieGoGo site:

“Gardon of Hedon” is a mystery/horror about a detective who wakes up in a surreal house where every pleasure is indulged. Drugs. Sex. Gambling.

It’s all there and more…including murder.

It’s going to be a mix of giallo and fantastique, with a healthy does of American mystery.

People ask us all the time how they can get involved in our movies—well, here’s the chance!

We’ll be shooting it in November, and we need help securing the final funds! (total budget is $20K, of which we have 75%)

Check out the perks! We’ve come up with what we think are some great incentives to donate! Want your name in the credits of a flick? There’s TONS of ways to do it here!


Kangas does have a good track record so far, with his first three films (Hunting Humans and Fear of Clowns 1&2) distributed-- the latter two by Lionsgate.

This film will be shot on with a Red. That should be cool!
