On Facebook, dozens of animators build the first crowd-sourced film
Folks have harnessed the power of the crowd-sourcing to build an online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, and to help scientists collect data for research. Now, 51 animators from all over the world have collaborated on Facebook to create a crowd-sourced computer-generated animation short film called "Live Music."
A romantic tale of a guitar named Riff (played by Steve Vai) and a violin named Vanessa (played by Ann Marie Calhoun), "Live Music" will debut Nov. 20 in theaters, screening before the film "Planet 51." (Check out the trailer on the jump.)
