3 Films: Alternative Freedom, Elephants Dream and An Inconvenient Truth

Paul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, Amusements, General

David McConville alerts us to two movies.

“Alternative Freedom” takes the Free Culture movement and documents it under a Creative Commons license (at least for their web site) and includes interviews with Larry Lessig, Richard Stallman, Danger Mouse and others.

“Elephant Dreams” web site has been SlashDotted, but then Slashdot describes the movie and it’s creation as the first “Open Movie” this way:

The 3D animated short ‘Elephants Dream’ will today be released as a free and public download. This is the final stage of a successfully completed Open Movie project which has been community-financed, using only Open Source tools, and opening up the movie itself as well as the entire studio database for everyone to re-use and learn from.

UPDATE: Wikinews has an interview with Ton Roosendaal

Davis Guggenheim, whose films “Teach” and “First Year” got our attention earlier on, is hitting it big with the Al Gore driven flick, “An Inconvenient Truth,” about global climate crisis and Gore’s passion to set things straight in the world. The site has a great theatre finder and the film is in wide release.

    the documentary is going to be released under a cc license, so it’s not just the website. thanks for mentioning us on your blog. there’s no need to hate things that are not “open” since that term has come to have so many different meanings to so many different people, rendering it useless in my opinion. what is free is what matters most.
