Anyone who loves video software has probably caught more than one glimpse of the Blender Foundation’s short films: Elephants Dream, Big Buck Bunny, Sintel, and Tears of Steel. I’ve enjoyed them from the beginning, and never paid a dime, on account of their impeccable Creative Commons licensing.

I always hoped that the little open source project would one day grow up enough to make a full length feature film. Now they’ve decided to try, and they’ve raised more than half their funding target … with only two days to go. You can donate here. I think of it like buying a movie ticket, except that what you get is not just the right to watch the movie, but actually ownership of the movie itself.
