Donation Campaign Started

  / by Ton

You can help us realizing this project by purchasing the DVD of the movie in advance. The DVDs will include the movie in high quality widescreen, making-of documentaries and all production files. And even better, all orders before September 1 will get their name mentioned in the credits of the movie!

Vist the Blender e-shop or check the real time Campaign Status meter.

Creative Commons License

  / by Ton

After a careful study of the possibilities, we’ve decided to adopt the Creative Commons for both the end-product (movie) and for the all the files that were used in the creation process (.blend files, models, textures). We’ll adopt a license allowing freedom to commercialy re-use it, make derivative works and distribute it at choice. The final text of the license will be published in September.

The software as being developed, for Blender, will of course be published under GNU GPL.

His studio Wavemage was founded in 2003 in Lüneburg (Northern Germany), after doing freelance music and sound design for some years. Wavemage’s mission is to provide soundtracks, sound design and audio post-production services for interactive entertainment, film, tv and advertising productions.
