Some links about Crowd-sourcing

I have been doing some research on crowdsourcing ( businessweek definition: "the practice of using large, distributed and minimally directed groups to accomplish tasks") and its applications on 3D animated production.

Check Mass Animation to get an idea of what is coming just around the corner. Scary, isn´t it?

So what do you need to set up your own film studio for free? Well, not much, one might think after visiting Wreck a Movie :" a collaborative film production platform, where anybody can come and set up their own film production, and find a community to collaborate on, or find an interesting film productions and become a collaborator". It is free for everyone, serves all kinds of audiovisual productions, from short films and music videos all the way to feature-length films.
The founders are a group of filmmakers from Finland.
