Open-source films attack Hollywood

,----[ Quote ]
| The Star Wreck Studios team, based in Tampere, Finland, has built a virtual
| studio for Iron Sky and an open-source platform that gives anybody the chance
| to make a film at no cost. They have recruited American Stephen Lee as
| managing director, and the chairman of the board is John Buckman, mostly
| known as the founder of Magnatune, a record label he created in Berkeley,
| Calif., in 2003.

There are several similar projects. Sites like YouTube also resolve the
distribution model problem, which is why Big Studios fight them.

| Although my artistic talent is probably in the low one percentile, after
| watching the movie I went to the Blender web site to see what was there, and
| was thrilled to see another open movie in the works: Peach. And it’s just
| getting geared up for production. Out of curiosity, I clicked on the link to
| pre-order the movie, and perhaps impulsively decided I wanted to support this
| new project. * *
