Blender 3D and Elephants Dream

Blender 3D is a cross-platform 3D graphics application, where you can create either pictures or movies. I've been using a lot of YouTube videos on The Unix Geek lately, and here's another one. It's called "Elephants Dream." "Elephants Dream" is a project by a group called Orange; it was designed to be the first open movie. We all know of open-source programs. You can get the source code to see how the program works. "Elephants Dream" can be downloaded either in its entirety or as visual source code. It's also called an "open movie" because it uses open-source applications, including Blender and Linux.
