Hello All Blender Fans!
I am writing to let you know that my website, www.openworldfilm.com, is hosting the world’s first Open CG Feature Length Film. The concept behind this is that anyone in the world can be a part of the CG film-making process. The entire process from scriptwriting to the final film will be kept open to anyone who wants to contribute. We are in the scripts & concepts stage now, and in a few months we will start into the production stage. Members will then be able to sign up for projects, and work in teams on various aspects of the production.
All project files and assets will also be free to download, as well as the finished product.Of course, I have placed a STRONG emphasis on the use of Blender throughout the production stage, and the standards that will be set will be done with Blender users in mind
I am really hoping this is something the Blender community would like to be a part of. This is the future of media as we know it, and Blender has a lot to do with it.
I will be covering all the costs of running this site, so you will find no ads or donate buttons, only what you need to effectively be a part of the project.
Please visit the site, and decide if you would like to be a part of this unique, world-wide event… Thanks for your time!
Edit: I am appending this thread because I think I need to make a few things clear. I am a video producer of 12 years. I began thinking to myself that I needed to do something more, and this idea came to me. It seems as though it is being greeted with some hostitlity and fear, and I want to make clear that this is just as much YOUR project and site as it is mine. I will always be open to suggestions and ideas to make it better.
I am hoping we can create something that transcends nationality, language, and cultural barriers to create something unique. This site will only bring me personal satisfaction, that is why you will never find any ads or donate buttons on the site. I am completely open to suggestions about how to improve the project, and how to make it something you all want to be a part of. The site has been up for a day or two, and has not had a chance to develop more than a few visitors. Hence, the post here in Blender Artists. I have been using Blender for almost 3 years now, and I actively support the open-source movement. I think Blender will be the cornerstone of this productions, and you, the Blender community, the heart and soul of what we will create. At the moment, I had decided to leave the script up to vote from a number of community submissions. This way, the community remains a part of the process. If you wish to skip this step, check back with us in a month or two. That’s when we get into the planning and storyboarding stage, and begin work on the actual production itself. Nothing is required of you to be a part of this. I am not asking for money, or selling email adresses to vendors, or anything else that I hate as much as all of you do. You can choose to contribute, or just choose to watch, or not be a part at all. For those of you who are interested, please pay us a visit.
