Big Buck Bunny premiere

I stumbled across Big Buck Bunny – a 10 minute video rendered completely on Linux Blender.

Big Buck Bunny is a comedy about a well-tempered rabbit “Big Buck”, who finds his day spoiled by the rude actions of the forest bullies, three rodents. In the typical 1950ies cartoon tradition Big Buck then prepares for the rodents a comical revenge.

It took 6 months to produce the clip on open-source technology and the 200MB 480p clip looks amazing:

If you do not mind watching a couple of cute, furry animals being killed, watch below or download the high-definition version from the above website.

Sofar there are over 400,000 downloads and the clip has been watched over 1,000,000 times. The downloads alone amounted to 29TB of traffic (IN ONE WEEK).
