Captain Disillusion: World's Greatest Blenderer - Live at the Blender Conference 2018

  • Published: 08 November 2018
  • Recorded at De Balie in Amsterdam on October 25th, 2018.

    In this format-bending presentation, intergalactic VFX explainer Captain Disillusion recounts his journey from humble amateur superhero to best Blender artist of all time*.

    It's a case study in using Blender as a versatile production tool in a comedy web series and a love letter to the Blender community. At the very least, it's an entertaining way to spend the better part of an hour.

              Not even remotely related to animation or 3D but watched the entire video because it's so engaging.

                Bravo Captain D, best presentation I have ever seen on anything, I mean that. Seems like many people share that opinion with me.

                  unrelated, but i have to point out that as an antitheist (one step past atheist in my eyes) who has a channel named hell houndz youtube shows me a lot of christian ads, lol. like damn isnt it bad enough i gotta listen to peeps in my freinds and family who never even read the bible cover to cover talk about what they know, and use cherry picked quotes with no context because they were fed them...seriously enough youtube lol ok rant over

                      7:30 I just hope you're not insinuating it's this teams fault that they're overwhelmingly Caucasian and male. I'm sure this wasn't intentional and they would employ more women etc. if they were available in the industry. Funny thing is we never see this kind of critisism aimed at predominantly non-white organisations.

                        30:27 is still my favorite part

                        It's unwise to be skeptical all the time, even if it doesn't exact the real physics we know.

                            From the Circus to the Internet, from the real world to one all his own, Captain Disillusion is an entertainer through and through.

                            This talk was an absolute masterclass on how to keep your audience engaged and I loved every second of it. It's not just a powerpoint, you can practically SEE all the hard work and effort that went into a job well done.

                                              Why are you so fucking good at this??

                                              I missed you. My YouTube canceled my subscription and i have memory problems so i forgot you existed.

                                              You are easily the best thing on YouTube. Your moral messages along with desire to maintain disillusionment in a society that seems to desire escapism from reality too much.

                                              I wish you would attempt to tackle political/religious topics - though it would change your channel, i worry. Perhaps attempt to educate people on logical fallacies? That would do it, without alienating people.

They also have to be "diverse" in skin tone and sex to be considered a good team. How ridiculous can you be? How backwards thinking is this? Why do we live in a world where the same people pushing for equality also have to dictate the amount of blacks, whites, reds, penises, etc can be in a room in order to "be efficient" or to be "diverse"? Why do people take those who push these hypocritical and backwards ideas seriously? Do you seriously think the team that worked on Agent 27 didn't bring in "more diverse" people because they're white and male? And to clarify, i understand this is all in reference to a cheap joke you made, but ironically you toxify the community with your racist and sexist ideas that you have to have a certain proportion of colors and genitals in a room in order for it to be diverse. If color is only skin deep and if your gender doesn't matter, then don't belittle those who look similar for things they can not control. For shame, I am disappointed.
