Blender has found it's uses in many different toolboxes of the CG industry and one example of commercial Blender usage is in this new short live action/cg film that Nathan Matsuda (nathanmatsuda.com) is creating.
Although still in early development a very nice teaser reel has been released to help get some publicity for the project as they are currently looking for funding. They are looking to use film grants to fund the project but will probably accept private funding. If you are interested in helping with this project please contact the project directly at hangarnumber5.com
I'm working on a short live action/cg film that is using blender for all of our modeling, animation, and rendering. We have a trailer out and we're working on raising money to shoot the actual film. We think the Blender community would be a good place to start gaining publicity. Go to hangarnumber5.com to view the trailer.
