Sintel, an open movie

Sintel is a currently in production fantasy movie. The first trailer looks great. But for me, the most exciting aspect of this project is that it is being developed using free software like Blender or Gimp.

Blender is a program specially designed for creating, modeling and animating three-dimensional graphics. And Gimp, as you all know, is an image retouching and editing tool.

Of course, to create a movie like this takes a lot of experience. But at least the tools are within reach of anyone. You could become a movie director! And all thanks to the magic of free software.

“Free software” doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have to pay for it. Free software is a matter of freedom: people should be free to use software in all the ways that are socially useful.
