Free movies for download!by Mitch on 22/05/2006
Sounds like a spam e-mail, but this is nothing of the sort. Previously I have mentioned a Star Wars Fan Film made with a relatively low budget called Star Wars: Revelations. Just now while browsing through my normal geek sites I have found two new awesome links. Normally I would just throw these into the A-sides on the right, but I figured this deserved a bit of a mention.
Firstly, a program called Blender. From the site: “Blender is the open source software for 3D modeling, animation, rendering, post-production, interactive creation and playback. Available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License.” I’ve just downloaded it and I’ll probably give it a look-see, but it’s interesting to note since it was used to create the movie in the second link.
Elephants Dream is a movie created entirely with free software, Blender. Right now their site is in a minimal state, providing only download links and not much else, however the idea alone has me really enthralled. Download it and have a watch, it can’t hurt.
