Elephants Dream.

One of the newest concepts in the field of animation movies, is Elephants Dream. It 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 production files, the graphics, etc., are freely available for download and any one can modify it to create his/her own movie. The sound, music, animation, storyline, graphics, etc. may be modified. The only constraint is that you credit the original source, Blender, and release the results also as open source.

Hmmm...this might mean a new era in the field of animations...considering that it takes billions of dollars and many experienced folks working for years at a time to create an animation movie. The internet and openness seems to be pervading every field...
