Big Buck Bunny

How did I not hear of this sooner? Big Buck Bunny is an open source movie! Released under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license, BBB is an HD quality short film created entirely out of open source software. A team of animators were flown to Amsterdam in October 2007 and only seven months later, the movie premiered.

Because its free and available under the CC license, I’m downloading it as I’m typing – so I can’t tell you how good the movie is. But at almost 10 minutes long, I’m hopeful its a good representative of how high definition animation can be created by using GPL’d software.
