Elephants Dream

Released in 2006, this is widely known as the first open movie ever. Elephants Dream has put Blender on the radar for many pros.

Elephants Dream is the culmination of the Orange Open Movie Project, produced during 2005-2006 by the Blender Foundation and the Netherlands Media Art Institute.
The film tells the story of Emo and Proog, two people with different visions of the surreal world in which they live. Viewers are taken on a journey through that world, full of strange mechanical birds, stunning technological vistas and machinery that seems to have a life of its own.
