American girl with LED sweatshirt arrested

September 24, 2008

One year ago, a 19-year-old MIT engineering student named Star Simpson got dressed to go pick up a friend at Boston’s Logan airport. She pulled a hoodie out of her closet, a wearable tech design she’d made with a light-up LED-circuit on the chest. In her hand was a small pink rose she’d crafted from hardened clay, a gift for her friend.

A few hours later at the airport, after an airport employee mistook her sweatshirt for a bomb and the rose for an explosive implement, Star found herself surrounded by 40 armed police who believed she was a suicide bomber. She was arrested for “possessing a hoax device,” and an unprecedented media frenzy ensued.

We will release The Last Drug under a Creative Commons BY License, making it the first free HD feature film. All footage, project files, sounds and special effects will be available for those of you that are eager to get hands on experience on the first Open Source feature film project ever or for those that are able to turn it into something different. We don’t ask for license fees and you are free to use it for commercial purposes. This Open Source approach worked for us with our first film, so we decided to stick to it.

Three backpackers cross South America searching for one of the world´s most powerful drugs. The self-experiment turns into a race against insanity, in a world, where the mind transcends the senses.

An Open Source feature film that takes you to and beyond the edge of the world. Genre: Mystery / Sci-Fi / Cyberpunk, approximate time: ca. 80 min.

Insecurity is “an Australian-made independently-funded feature film” with a ‘hacker’ plot line at its core. As “everyone involved in [Insecurity‘s] creation are, to one degree or another, involved in the IT industry or some other nerd subculture”, the film aims to be as technically accurate as possible. Released under a CC BY-NC-ND licence, you can stream the film live or download it for free here.


Big Buck Bunny

June 2, 2008

The people who saw Elephants Dream know what Open Source Movies are.

If you don’t know… It’s about producing films using open source/free software tools (like blender) and releasing the films in such a license that everybody can watch it without having to pay.

Now a new 9 minute movie is being finished by the Blender Foundation. It is called Big Buck Bunny.
You can either watch it here over youtube or download a higher quality version on their website.
