I’m glad to present to you the first Trailer of Cronopios and Famas, an animation feature film that is being produced in Argentina, based of the short stories of writer Julio Cortazar.
The film is being created exclusively with Free and Open Source Software, from image treatment and animation, to audio editing and final mix. Production started more than 2 years ago and we’ve worked with a team of 5 to 7 people, so it has been a really hard job to get the almost 100 minutes of the film done.
The movie consists on ten different short stories based on Cortazar’s book. At the same time, each story has been painted by a renowned Argentinian artist. This paintings were digitized, treated in Gimp and then animated in Blender using a mix of 3d and 2d motion graphic techniques.
The audio of the film is also based on Creative Commons sounds downloaded from Freesound.org and has been edited in Ardour. The final video and audio editing is being made with Blender and Ardour synchronized as a single application using the Jack audio server (Jack transport).
No need to say that this is all done with Linux .
We are currently finishing compositing and doing the final render. My guess is that the whole movie will be finished by April.
I hope you like it! I’ll be back with more news as soon as the movie is finished! For now, here is the Trailer:
