Blender Institute announced the 3th Open Movie project.
The aim of the project is creating short 3D animation in fantasy style and enhance a Blender application, they are using only Open Source apps, the movie will be open too.
the last 2 projects, Orange - Elephants Dream
and great Peach - Big Buck Bunny
Maybe some day Synfig will take a part in creating a Open Movie.

Mauricio: I definitely thought about it many times. Things are just not so simple though… for a project like this to be successful you need these conditions:
Massive user community to support it
Sufficiently large developer team
A determined person or small team with entrepreneurial qualities to organize it all.
Blender is in the lucky circumstance we got all three. But it’s fair to expect that we then work on Blender itself, and I would expect other free/open projects to organize themselves on a similar level if they want similar results…
Also note that we’ll deliver all in an open/free license, so any music/audio community can pick it up to make a great showcase.
I’m still very open - and so is composer Jan Morgenstern - to involve free software audio tools, contact details people can find on this site. But to keep things feasible and practical, our own targets are already more than ambitious! We’re not waving with a magical wand here, it’s very very hard work by a lot of people to get it done.
What do you think about that? In my opinion Synfig lacks in PR zone I will say. More stability and easier to manage interface, could help, bigger community means more developers.
I’m trying on my polish comunity to advertise synfig but we (as a community) need to try more and maybe cooperate with other communities.
I’d say we’re a little short in areas 1,2, & 3 right now.
Yes, I know, this is because Synfig is quite young so it’s not well known.
