“Tears of Steel” – project Mango – is Blender Foundation’s fourth short film project, with the sole purpose of improving and validating Blender’s open source 3D VFX pipeline. The entire film is being processed and created by free/open source software, from initial camera tracking to the final edit and grade. In October 2012, the film and all of its assets will be released as Creative Commons Attribution.

Help realize this film and help us improve Blender! Check the sponsors page on this website, or pre-order the movie DVD box – which will have all the digital assets as well.
