Open source video animation

Big Buck Bunny, may sound like a rather dodgy name for an online video, but it is in fact the latest product from a company called The Blender foundation.

What's special about Big Buck Bunny is that it is a Pixar quality 3D animated movie made completely with free software and all the files and assets from the movie have been made under creative commons license so that others can contribute and develop more movies using those assets.

Anyway have a look at the product. This version is from Youtube, but you can access their site and download high quality and find out more about the project here.

This is a really wonderful project and a great movie. Time to start looking at how it can be used for language development.

Hope you enjoy it.

Glad you like it. I'm hoping to find the time to develop some materials to go with it.
