2. The Peach open 3D movie now entitled "Big Buck Bunny" from the Blender Institute is set to premiere all of its hard work on April 10th! I first posted about this project on October 4th and had updates here and here. This is the world's first collaborative and open 3D project - they flew in animators to Amsterdam from all over the world to work on it WITHOUT PAYING THEM (just covered transportation and living expenses) and the animators get to work with top notch equipment and to be attributed to a great movie. Great idea huh? You bet. Here are the premiere details:
- Thursday April 10th, 2008
- Cinema Studio K, Amsterdam the Netherlands
- Premiere event starts at 19.00, and includes dinner and party.
