From the Tears of Steel press release
For over half a year an international team of 3D visual effects artists worked in the studio of the Amsterdam Blender Institute on the short film "Tears of Steel", written and directed by Seattle talent Ian Hubert. This independent production was financed by the online user community of the free program Blender and was supported by the Netherlands Film Fund, the Cinegrid consortium, and by corporate sponsors such as Google.
The film project's primary target was intended as an incentive for the development of a free and open source pipeline for visual effects in film, using the popular Blender 3D creation software. The film itself, and any material made in the studio, will be released as Creative Commons shortly after the premiere. This concept, a true Open Movie, allows filmmakers to study and reproduce every detail of the creation process.
The movie is available under a Creative Commons license and is free to download, edit, and remix.
