Sintel::Open Movie by Blender Foundation

I’m showing this movie in my Digital Literacy class tomorrow as an example of work created by Free Open Source Software(FOSS), in this case, the 3D animation package ‘Blender’.

I used to show ‘Elephants Dream’ made in 2006, but I’m more engaged with this one. Obviously, being a few years later, the technology has advanced and the graphics are great in this work. I’m also more engaged in the storyline…but that might just be me. Anyway, both are great examples of what can be done with open source software, that it CAN compete with the large corporations…

p.s. i also used Miro Video Player (open source, non-profit) to download it, so I didn’t have to watch it over broadband – best quality! x
