From Blender Course in Brezice, Slovenia on short: Impressive!
Of course not only because I was there, but also because are people from
Brezice so friendly and hospitality that it's impressive! I almost
forgot that still exist towns where people greeting strangers on the
streets! Well, that's for sure something that I will use more often from
now on, so thank you people from Brezice for such a pleasant lesson! :)
Blender Course was organized in a newly restored and very nicely
equipped youth center McB, where we explored Blender funky workflow for
a three days. A new colorful group of Blenderheads followed
Catmull-Clark modeling and other Blender tricks surprisingly fast, so we
soon transposed lessons into more advanced stuff. Of course there's much
left to say, but in a three days we went a way beyond what I planned.
Ha, I had luck with a participants again, those already familiar with a
similar tools raised course tempo, and others quickly followed.
Professor Joze even nick named me with an Eustahije Brzic (funny blue
racer cartoon character, ha, thanks Joze, yeah, i enjoyed that cartoon
myself too!:) , but a youngest member Tim wasn't bothered with the
lessons speed at all, so we proceeded with the same faster, funky and
enthusiastic pace into a deep hour beyond schedule! \o/ :)
In one of the rare breaks between lessons I had an honor to met Mateja
who organized the whole thing, but a participants didn't want to attend
on that coffee break, so unfortunately was that meeting just too short.
So, thank you Mateja for such a great Blender happening and a short
coffee, if I knew that I would order at least capuchino for sure! :)
While I've been walking around the streets in Brezice, I found the best
acoustic hall that I ever heard (and believe me, I've been in many of
them, from Warsaw, Paris, Amsterdam,... ha, to Venice and Rome even!) \o/
Oh yes, that knight's hall also looks great! There's also a grand
concert piano on which I played my favourite variation on Orff's
composition. No one complained, hmm, maybe it wasn't that bad after all,
but I know that I enjoyed acoustics the most! :)
Mario, one of attendants, mentioned that it's possible to hire that
place for a fair price. So now it's already decided where will be
Blender award ceremony in Slovenia! \o/ I hope that we'll be able to
fill all the places soon.. :P
For sure I wish more of such a pleasant experiences in the future and I
hope to see you soon!
