这部“开源电影”可能改变电影产业的大生态吗?


你可能听过开源代码,开源平台,但是你听说过“开源电影”吗?《Tube》就是一部开源动画电影,讲述的是一名国王寻找永生之法的故事。这部电影由来自伦敦,开普敦,柏林等地的不同独立动画师的协作,目前还尚未完工。这些动画师从394人中募集了14,560美元,但是他们还需要22,000美元完成电影的制作和发行。

Tube是一款用Inkscape,Python等软件编写的3D动画。作为一部开源电影,它的所有资产,包括各种3D模型,动画图纸,原生音乐和相关数据,可按照CC(知识共享的授权模式)被任何人使用,即便是用于商业用途。但是,所有使用者也必须同意其他人利用他们的作品,或者在他们的作品上进行新一轮的加工。

开源电影会对电影生态产生哪些影响呢?首先,这种开源电影可以让各种电影资源获得更好的利用。对于那些酷爱电影制作但是没有足够资金的独立动画师而言,这些资源可以进一步降低他们制作电影的门槛,丰富整个电影大生态。同时,基于他人作品的再创作这一理念,是一个相对新鲜的概念,他们或可吸引一部分电影创作者。而且,这也是现在渐热的一个“社交元素”,先前我们介绍的一款移动应用Mixel 也使用了这一创意。再者,资源的开放应该是个大趋势,除了软件,电影,其他诸如教育等行业也越来越倾向于资源的共享。

但是,不可否认的是,动画电影中的可移植资源相较真人电影更多。而且,在电影制作人中培育这种新的合作模式,也需要一定的时间。

如果Tube团队可以筹到资金,那么他们可能在7个月之内完成动画制作。

yeah no yeah


Typographic prints make me feel like dramatically throwing all the accessories off my countertops and embracing an uber-modern minimalist style. I never actually do it, but something about the simplicity of these bold alphabet prints lends itself to that clean look. These prints are from Hannah and the team at Yeah No Yeah in the UK and are screen-printed by hand as posters measuring approximately 16 x 20 inches. You can choose any letter of the alphabet online right here for $65. I’d love to see a blog have a contest where people send in pictures of the best wall spelling made with letter prints like these. I bet this community would have some pretty clever entries . . . xo, grace
