Open Source Cinema is Ready For Its Close-up

,----[ Quote ]
| Open Source Cinema If you've been to the movie theater lately and thought, "I 
| can do better than that," now's your chance. Open Source Cinema is inviting 
| the FOSS community to get involved a project surrounding its first movie, 
| RiP: A Remix Manifesto.    



Ubuntu In Popular Culture

,----[ Quote ]
| Yesterday we watched “Berlin am Meer” - not a world-changing, but nice movie
| filmed in Berlin. As in all other modern movies which happen to be shot in
| Berlin, I enjoy the sensation of recognising where the scene happened (”Nice,
| that’s like 5 minutes from here.” or “We’ve been at that spot last weekend.”)
| The movie did not disappoint us in that regard, lots of scenes were shot in
| Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain and Treptow.
| In addition to that, I was pleased to see they used Ubuntu in a short scene.
| (The supposed best friend of the leading character copies files from his
| laptop without him knowing.)


If it's animation or special effects, it's Linux

| Rowe's not just being a Linux booster. It's the Gospel truth. The animation
| and FX for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; Star Wars: The
| Clone Wars; WALL-E; 300; The Golden Compass; Harry Potter and the Order of
| the Phoenix; and I Am Legend, to name but a few recent movies, were all
| created using Pixar's RenderMan and Autodesk Maya running on Linux clusters.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
