Open Collaboration Community
Saving the planet is a challenge nobody can solve on his/her own, so we also want to create Our Earths VR in a collaborative way as community. We are looking in particular for 3D-Animators, but of course for everyone who wants to join. If you are interested in participating and contributing please contact us!
In the philosophy of the Blender Open Movies
we will release not only the finished film but also all assets (3d scenes, objects, textures, etc.) we create for Our Earths VR
to the public for free and under an open license that enables studying and using everything as a basis for further projects. Blender
will also be used for all 3D animation related tasks in the project and in general open source software is preferred over proprietary solutions whereever possible.
