    Last chance to fund Tube, a free culture Blender-animated film!

    Social links:


    Blender's Open Movie Projects have already proved that it's possible to produce stunningly high-quality 3D animated films exclusively using free software in a studio setting. Now, a new animated short film called Tube, inspired by the ancient epic poem of Gilgamesh, is expanding on that work to bring free culture to the masses. The Tube project is not merely evidence of the technical capabilities of free software tools like Blender, PiTiVi, and Fedora GNU/Linux, but living proof of their viability for independent filmmakers. The most impressive aspect of the project is that it has managed to come together through distributed collaboration between 56 artists from 22 countries — some of which are at war. Tube truly highlights the incredible unifying power of free software tools and a free culture model.



    Within the first few days, Tube's Kickstarter campaign reached the minimal baseline goal of $22K and subsequently hit Slashdot. As the film enters the final stages of production, the Tube team needs as much support as they can get to make this story a huge success for free software, free culture, and independent animators everywhere. With the production funding target of $50K in sight and just a couple days left in the campaign, this is your last chance to support this ambitious undertaking and get your name in the film as a backer. There is enormous potential here; as Mashable questions, 'Will This Open-Source Animated Film Change the Movie Industry Forever?'

    The film's public release is scheduled for 7 months from now along with all the assets, source, and project files under the free culture and copyleft Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike (CC-BY-SA) licence. For an in-depth discussion with the team, check out this interview with the Tube project founders on Libre Graphics World. It's up to us now to help Tube affirm the legitimacy of producing free cultural works in a fully free software workflow.

    Thank you for the heads-up DPic!

    I want to donate $50 or more so my name can be immortalized on the movie. However, I have a question.

    1) Do I have to use my real name when registering for Kickstarter?

    2) I see that Kickstarter ask us to link it to a Amazon.com account. So, the Tube Opem Movie projects acquiring my name, would it get it from amazon.com or kickstarter?

    (I just don't want to write or register my name in unnecessary places)


    I hope someone knows the answer to this.

    You don't have to use your real name and I believe it only uses the amazon account to verify the transaction!

    I had bank account since I was 8. You could check with your local bank if they allow minors to get an account. This depends on where you live, and the bank policy of course.

    Best of luck.

    Or join a credit union! Those are much better, and as a customer, you actually own your share of the credit union. So they treat you right [=

    The FSF has a partnership with DCU (Digital Federal Credit Union) so all FSF members are eligible to join!

    The credit union sounds interesting. I need to to my homework on that.


    He everyone, the OpenMovie Project's funding is almost near the deadline. So now is the time to donate
