That is right folks, duber.tv, a free VFX videotutorials resource, will be permanently shut-down by July 2011. This is tough news for me as it is, I believe, for some of you.
I’ve given this a long and thorough thought and I came up to this conclusion. duber.tv simply doesn’t make any money and thus doesn’t make any sense for me to keep running. You might not realize, but keeping a server full of lenghty and rather large free videos is an expensive business and since it’s extremely tough to survive in this business, I’ve decided to shut it down and dedicate the resources to a different venture that I’m about to pursue in 2011.
I’m sorry to all of you who loved duber.tv and I hope that at least a tiny plaster might be the fact that I’ll still keep on publishing free lectures and tutorials now and then here on this very place, blog.duber.cz.
Also, I’ll close down the training DVDs shop on my main web-site very soon. So, if you want to make a purchase, do so quickly as I’ll be removing the DVDs from my site for good. They’ve served very well to, both, you guys and me, but I have to keep my focus on more important ventures, which is my core business, VFX post-production and 3D animation.
Thanks for all your support and understanding. You’ve been awesome!
