Blender Animation Studio is a small studio based in the Netherlands.  They are responsible for creating the opensource 3D software 'Blender'.

Using their own software they have created a trailer for a film version of Agent 327 - based on a Dutch comic series.  Instead of being 007, he's 327, meaning he can have a gun but isn't allowed to use it.

The trailer was a year of work for the Blender team, which was funded by crowd-sourcing within the Blender opensource network.

The team are now hoping to find bigger investors in order to get the $15 million funding they need to create the full feature film.
