When does a movie qualify as an Open Source Movie? If you can copy it for free? If you can download some source materials? Or if people somehow work on it together? The technical answer to some of these questions you can find in our forum
The sources of Valkaama are finally downloadable
via the BitTorrent network. Special thanks to all private Source Seeders and the
Sources Seeders of Germany's Pirate Party
who are ensuring a permanent availability of the data.
The sources are now also available for download on a HTTP Mirror.
Due to problems with the host provider the sources had to be deleted from the HTTP Mirror.
Strona Valkaamy wzbogaciła się w wersję polskojęzyczną. Bardzo dziękuje Katarzynie Weselak za tłumaczenie.
The movie is now available as an Alpha-Version. Click here
to watch or download it.
As you will see there are still a lot of things to be done in order to complete it.
Anyway I hope you like the movie and maybe you can contribute to the
post-production to improve it. This
is what's still to be done.
Any help is welcome. Get in touch!
Da 80% der Besucher momentan aus Deutschland kommen, gibts die Webpage jetzt auch auf Deutsch. Nur das Forum bleibt hauptsächlich auf Englisch. Hätte ich eigentlich früher drauf kommen können...
Pirate Party supports Source Release
Today I met Stefan Hermes from the German Pirate Party
at the Freiheit statt Angst
(Freedom not Fear) demo in Berlin. The demonstration was directed mainly
against the increasing collection of our personal data by the government and big companies.
It is feared that the control over the data along with the increasing abilities of interconnecting them enables
the exact monitoring of our private life. A fact to be concerned about.
Stefan and the Pirates offered their help for publishing the Valkaama source files via BitTorrent
and seeding it. That's great news... and apart from that I think that there's also a good chance that
we'll create the biggest Torrent in the network :)
I've been making a list of things which are still to do in order to finish the movie. Please have a look at the forum
After a three day upload marathon @30 KB/s the 6 GB of trailer video sources are now fully available.
