Film Freedom: making and releasing films with free software

Film Freedom is a documentation and development project to make filmmaking with free-software and releasing via free culture funding models more accessible. It currently includes the following development projects:

  • KitCAT: the Kit for Creative Arts Teamwork is a virtual studio system and client which connects the TACTIC studio DAMS and Project Management suite to popular filmmaking and creative software packages.
  • Lib-Ray is a project to create an alternative to DVD and Blu-Ray for fixed-format releases, using only free-licensed software and open formats, without encryption or region-coding.
  • Lunatics! is an original animated science-fiction story about the first permanent settlers on the Moon. This is an independent, free-culture, open-movie production, made with open-source software, especially Blender. Regular updates and support are through Patreon.

Andrew Pam is the past president and current treasurer of Linux Users of Victoria. Andrew and his partner Dr. Katherine Phelps ran an animation fan club for many years. Andrew is a supporter and render server provider for Terry Hancock's "Lunatics!" FOSS animated TV series project.

There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop if you need help with a particular issue. This will now occur BEFORE the talks from 12:30 to 14:00. The talks will commence at 14:00 (2pm) so there is time for people to have lunch nearby.

The meeting will be held at Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond 3121.  Late arrivals please call (0421) 775 358 for access to the venue.

LUV would like to acknowledge Infoxchange for the venue.

Linux Users of Victoria is a subcommittee of Linux Australia.
