CG Cookie was awarded an Epic MegaGrant!

Wes Burke @wesburke

For years, Citizens of the Cookie have been asking us for training that brings the Unreal Engine and Blender together. Something that I've always wanted to deliver, but simply have not been able to pursue... until now.

I'm excited to share that CG Cookie is an Epic Mega Grant recipient! We’re ready to make some Unreal-tasting Cookies! 🍪

In the past 12 years, CG Cookie has become known for our high-quality Blender training and of course kick-arse community that makes it all possible.

CG Cookie is funded by members who purchase a subscription; that's what pays for our instructors, our support crew, and our servers.

Our main focus is on producing inspiring edutainment to keep our members engaged and learning - and we don't have much capacity to do anything else. And while we love teaching, we are also artists at the core who have that itch to create.

The Epic Mega Grant will enable us to secure additional resources and revisit an old passion project.

It's going to be a monster undertaking: creating something amazing while documenting the process along the way.

Don't worry, we won't be sheepish about the challenges, there will be plenty to eat consume. The result should be a pretty incredible bridge between the Blender and Unreal communities.

Huge thanks to Epic Mega Grant's team & you for supporting this rolling cookie over the years. #onward!
