Collision will be a new Open Source short movie from Brazil. I am very pleased to read that they are sticking to the Open Source Film definition as it hast been defined in my thesis paper.

Collision is a Brazilian science-fiction open source film, based on the initiative of the Open Source Software, which means taking up the principles of a new kind of Cinematic production in which the distribuition, exhibition and modification of the work is allowed, supported and effectively possible through the release of all its sources. In this sense, the license of the film is approved for Free Cultural Works – specifically under the Creative Commons License by-sa 3.0. Furthermore, the materials used in the film, all its files and sources will also be available under the same license and will be publically accessible via online download in this web-site, or through other means that are free of charge or having a reasonable value that covers only production expenses. The sources and files will be viewable and alterable with open/free software. If this is not the case, they will be converted in such format using a software of that type. This will also apply to the film itself. Our intention, however, is to accomplish the entire project, from its capture to its post-production, with open software in the Linux platform. Thus, it will be possible to any person to recreate it or rebuild it using the available files. (see website)

So my Wikipedia article is actually being read by at least some people smiling smiley Let's hope that there will be more and more such great projects in the future.
