Submission period closed!

Hi all,

Thanks for all the great portfolios :) Haven’t counted them precisely yet – Sebastian will make a nice spreadsheet – but it’s over 110 submissions I think.

For everyone who sent in an application, you should have had an email from me to confirm it. If you didn’t, send me a reminder! We will try to get the final answers for candidates in a week… will be tough again!

Procedure: we will select people who get invited immediate, and people who will be put on a waiting list… we cannot fully predict yet how much time people are available, how much they’re needed, and how much work and time we are going to spend on Mango in general.

More news: Ian has been producing several crazy insane cool concepts (including robotic Anne Franks). His last proposal seems to have beaten all previous ones though… when I read it I felt like a rabbit caught in headlights. It’s tough stuff to picture yet, needs to be broken down and analyzed well. Now… should I tell more? Nah. ;)

    Open movie projects are always fun to follow. I can’t wait for first studio updates ;)
    I wish you good luck with the crew! :]

    Sounds awesome!

    I know that things blew out of proportion with Sintel, but please still remember the story. The VFX are what will get people’s attention, but it’s the story (and how the VFX emphasize it) that will make Mango memorable and keep people talking about it over time.

    That said, I’m totally pumped about having Ian onboard, about seeing live action integrated with 3D in a Blender short, and about so many aspects of this short!

    Go Team Mango!
