Any body have heard of an open source movie…? 🙂

This animated movie named Elephants Dream (developed under the orange project) was released to the public on the 18 of may 2006, with all the production files (including the movie itself) available to download. This movie is supposed to be the first open source movie in the history.

According to the producers themovie has been created on an open source 3d animation software called blender.

Compared to other popular animation softwares like MAYA, 3DsMAX, … blender can be considered as a feather weighted software. It has most of the features of these popular softwares but if you conseder the size of the program blender is nearly 8Mb while the others exceed 100's of MBs.

also .. the good news is blender is available for most of the platforms.
