Free Thing of the Week: Spring

In the current social media-fogged environment, it’s easy to concentrate entirely on gloom, doom, game over man we’re gonna die.

Nevertheless the cherry blossoms are in bloom, the skies are blue, the seas are hush-hushing, and the days are longer than the nights.

In other words, it’s spring.

And so it is that we bring you this beautiful animated film from the Blender Animation Studio. If you’re unfamiliar with Blender, you should rectify that and this will help. Blender Animation Studio’s work is all done with free/libre/open source software and all released under Creative Commons sharing licenses. It is also second to none in quality.

Watch, marvel, and enjoy.
