The world’s first open movie?

I’ve been looking for a semi-legit rationale to link to the wondrous grey market site Greylodge for some time now. Finally, one has arrived:

Elephants Dream is the world’s first open movie, made entirely with open source graphics software such as Blender, and with all production files freely available to use however you please, under a Creative Commons license. The short film was created by the Orange Open Movie Project studio in Amsterdam during 2005/2006, bringing together a diverse team of artists and developers from all over the world.

    Wow, serendipity? After reading this post I just found a link to Blender’s second open source movie “Peach” and their open source game “Apricot” via Digg. Talk about having your finger on the pulse of the online world. It’s uncanny, or even unheimlich! Thanks for the goodness.

    Jim – thanks for the link, and the word Unheimlich! On the pulse indeed…
