Sun is in the Movie Business!

It's a little known fact that I never wanted to get into the technology business. I always wanted to be in the movie business. Ever since I saw Star Wars 15 times in the summer of 1977 I've loved movies. In 1985, when I got my first Mac, I bought a piece of software called Videoworks (screenshot below) that allowed you to make animated movies on the computer. I actually turned that into a job for a while by developing animations for corporate advertising and training (Apple itself being my largest customer).
However, I later got sucked into other things and wound up working on Enterprise software. However, I still like the idea of making movies -- even if it's just of my kids playing in the back yard...
That's why I thought it was so much fun to see Sun had helped to produce a new, open source, animated movie. You can check it out below. Super fun!
