"OPEN" an Open Source Music Video

ZTH Music - “Open”
SYNOPSES“Figure 1” the main character, is an energized, carefree spirit. Basking in his own closed world. But this all changes when he sees the world with a new mindset and when the heart is….”OPEN!”
WHO“OPEN” is a collaborative project between talented Open Source Artist.

  • Music/Sound - Gabriel Nordeborn - ZTH Music (http://www.soundcloud.com/zthmusic)
  • Creative Director/Video Editing - Brian Beck - design by beck
  • Lead Animator/Lead 3D Modeling - ???
  • Additional Contributors - ???


TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
The goal of “OPEN” is to showcase just that, the Open Source Mindset using Open Source Software. Thus the work flow should not use any closed or proprietary software! Only Open Source Software such as: Linux, Blender, GIMP, Inkscape, Kdenlive, OpenShot, Krita, MyPaint, Pencil, Synfig Studio, etc.

ART DIRECTION
The style/makeup of most characters should be geometric shapes and/or origami style in nature. Colors are vibrant and glowing. Time is right at dusk with a setting sun and a full vivid moon. Settings are grassy hills leading down to a lagoon. The story then progresses out under the sea, then ending up amongst a starry sky.

Blender Plugin “Freesytle” Does line art conversion. Might be interesting to see this rendered with the concepts below and/or overlayed on to it.
