Very interesting concept on how to get an independent movie made in today's day and age:
Project London is an independent, no-budget, feature-length, live action movie with vivid, intense, and marrow-vibrating visual effects and animations created with the open source software Blender (and other traditional software) and 250 (or so) worldwide volunteers.

Hailing from Leeds, England Gang Of Four were one of the original and most important post-punk bands. Their songs were driven by Dave Allen's bass guitar playing that was heavily influence by American Funk and Dub music from Jamaica. As can expected by a band that named themselves after a leftist faction of the Chinese Communist Party they wrote political songs dealing with heavy topics like war and poverty. There influence can be heard today in bands like Radio 4 and Bloc Party. Although the band is still performing only two of the original members remain.
