Big Buck Bunny and the render farms that give him life

Big Buck Bunny - Official Trailer from Andy Goralczyk on Vimeo.

I couldn't get away without blogging this very cute movie being made by Peach Open Movie. This is a really neat concept, since all the ideas coming out of Peach are licensed under Creative Commons. And it's an open project... in fact for donating 30 euros you can get your name in the credits as a sponsor.

What's cool is their blog hosts a ton of stuff on the process behind animated movies. You can go there to learn about their render farms (above) as well as stages of animation (below).

PLUS, if you listen to the music at the end of their trailer, there's a tuba playing. That makes this project a definite win.
