Mass AnimationWith funding from Intel and Dell, former Sony Pictures digital chief Yair Landau is launching Mass Animation, a web site on Facebook that allows animators to contribute scenes to five-minute shorts on Facebook. It is the first collaborative, worldwide effort to produce a computer-generated animated short film for theatrical release.

The collaboration, through an unique application built on the Facebook Platform, including a limited duration version of Autodesk Maya, already started on 17th Nov and will run through 30th Jan 2009. Facebook users will be given the opportunities to vote for their favorite animations, starting on 24th Nov. A compelling short could eventually be turned into a full-length movie.
