Blender is perhaps open source's biggest poster child for years now. And in every year or two, Blender foundation showcases the product's 3D graphics capabilities by releasing animated movies created exclusively using Blender software. They are called "open movies" and you're free to download and reuse the movies the way you want, standing true to its open source credentials. We have featured each and every Blender "open" movie ever released here and here. Now its time for the fifth one codenamed "Gooseberry", and unlike its predecessors, the project's goal would be to produce a feature length animated film.
On January 10, 2011, Blender creator Ton Roosendaal announced that the fifth open movie project would be codenamed "Gooseberry" and that its goal would be to produce a feature length animated film. Here's a teaser video on what its going to look like.
Stupendous effort don't you think? I'm really excited to see what its going to look like eventually. Remember, Project Gooseberry is going to be a full length animated movie unlike the others. Here's that caterpillar shot once again.
Can't get enough of it right? Support Blender Foundation's crowdfunding efforts so that "Project Gooseberry" becomes a reality. Thanks to Ilmari Lauhakangas for the tip.
