How to get Involved

3 February, 2014 |  18 Comments | by Ton Roosendaal

With Gooseberry being much larger in scale than previous projects, we also will have much more job openings, and will work on exciting ways for people to be involved or participate.

Openness and sharing is going to be important – but also to realize a top quality film. How to bring both together  I’ve written down in the ‘get involved’ page on this site.


Comments and feedback welcome, what do you think? :)

    I am super excited about this project and would love to get involved in other ways than just donations (I have donated to other projects in the past, and I will again this time). I am in Canada, so no studio working from here, but it is nice to know that I could potentially provide assets, or help otherwise.

    Is there going to be a mailing list for this project? Or maybe a directory of producers/project managers in each studio hub? That might be a good start for some two way communication and organization for freelancers/remote contributors.

    Thanks to all those who are making this happen.

    • Thank you for your support Braeden! We will announce the actual collaboration infrastructure/framework in the coming weeks, keep an eye on the website :)

    will your blog be supporting RSS feeds as well? or even google plus integration for announcements and progress posts?

  3. Hello Friends!

    I am a Blender enthusiast. I have always wanted to contribute to the development of Blender or the advancing of Blender.

    I can’t really code or model at a significant level so I can’t contribute that way.

    I am, however, a professional musician, composer and sound designer.

    I am wondering if you guys need any sound effects and music. I am more than willing to volunteer my time and creativity to your project. Please let me know if this is a possibility.

    Looking forward to hearing from you, and to possibly working with you. If I do not get to take part, I will look forward with anticipation to seeing the awesome work you will come up with.

    Best Regards,


    • Hello Nathaniel!
      There is a great number of musicians, composers and sound designers lining up or this task, but it’s still a bit early to take decisions about this.

      We will make more formal announcement about this in the future! Thanks for your offer :)

  6. Hello Project Gooseberry,

    this year i started teaching Blender at a Design Institute ( italian only) as a support to the Editorial Illustration and Interior Design courses

    i think it would be very positive for my students to get in touch with actual projects and i would like to know if there’s place for this kind of collaboration in your project, and eventually how this can be done, the article is not perfectly clear on the subject

    I just wanted to donate 1-2€, but the donation page looks like I have to register and enter my address. I’d prefer to donate anonymously and through an easy service like lirect debit or paypal.

    Until this is possible, I won’t be able to get my money to you.

    Still good luck with the project.
