Beeple (aka Mike Winkelmann), the animator of a new video for Flying Lotus‘ track Kill Your Co-Workers, has posted all of his 3D animation project files on his website so interested creative geeky types can download them and see exactly how each shot and every character was animated and use the files as they wish.

“I like to think of it as sort of an ‘open source video’ in that all of the pieces of the project are also released for people to do what they’d like with,” says Beeple.

This is the second time this year Warp act Flying Lotus has worked closely with the open source community, following the free Cosmogramma Fieldlines augmented reality application built in Open Frameworks with Aaron Meyers. The online app enabled users to manipulate graphics and sounds (designed by Flying Lotus during the Cosmogramma album sessions specifically for the application), using a webcam or mouse.
