From Little Acorns is the only film in the festival that is not purely open source. However, it shares many of the same traits. The film was produced as a pro-bono project (a freebie) so it had no budget. Therefore, it shares the first common trait of all open source films of lacking any significant production funds and therefore having to do a lot with a little. All of the production expenses for this project were donated. The project was a community-centric and all of the creative work was performed by volunteers as a public service. This film uses both live action photography and photo-realistic 3-D animation to illustrate the old English idiom, "mighty oaks from little acorns grow." The general idea was that great things may come from small beginnings.
