Making movies with open source software

The Blender crowd used the process of making a demo (called 'Sintel') of what Blender can do, to not only publicise the software, but as a good way to find ways to improve the software itself.

They are not claiming it is a brilliant movie, but it is definitely in advance of what they have done before. Not only that, but they make available everything needed to make the movie, and you are encouraged to modify it, or to make your own.

The movie Sintel has a home page, or you could watch it directly on youtube, and there are plenty of comments about it on Slashdot.

I know Blender is available for Linux based operating systems (such as Fedora), and they say it is available for all major operating systems.
