"As a follow-up to the successful project Orange’s “Elephants Dream”, the Blender Foundation will initiate another Open Movie project. Again a small team of the best 3D artists and developers in the Blender community will be invited to come together to work in Amsterdam from October 2007 until April 2008 on completing a short 3D animation movie. The team members will get a great studio facility and housing in Amsterdam, all travel costs reimbursed, and a fee sufficient to cover all expenses during the period.
The creative concept of “Peach” will be completely different as for “Orange”. This time it’ll be funny and furry!
The Blender Foundation and Blender community will be the main financiers for Peach. As for the previous open movie, a pre-sale campaign to purchase the DVD set in advance will be organized. Additional support from sponsors and subsidy funds is being sought as well.
Peach will also be the first Open Project hosted by the new Blender Institute in Amsterdam. This will make the project more independent, without much involvement of production partners, and also will ensure continuity." (http://peach.blender.org/index.php/about/)
