The Open Fantasia Project is an open community of people who work together to create visual music - music combined with cutting-edge animation. The artistic universe first visited in Walt Disney’s 1940 movie Fantasia is still largely unexplored. Fantasia still stands as the unrivaled pinnacle of visual music, and its sister film, Fantasia 2000 (released 60 years later) is one of very few worthy successors. Open Fantasia aims to create music videos of equal or greater quality, leveraging the power of an open community and open/free software to expand on Walt's dream.
"The goal of Open Fantasia is to provide a context where anyone who dreams of following in Walt’s footsteps can meet others and create magical, beautiful things together", says Open Fantasia Project founder, Ken Scott. "Contribute a little or contribute a lot, but do feel free to help. Artists, musicians, engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs - anyone with skills or resources who's ever dreamed of using technology to create art. Open Fantasia is the place, and now is the time. What was impossible for us to do alone is now possible when we work together. Together we will create amazing, spectacular, magical movies that even Walt could never have imagined."
The Open Fantasia Project will serve as:
* a hub, where we can meet and talk
* a studio, where we can create magical things together
* a gallery, to show the world what we’ve done
* a marketplace, to sell our creations and services
