Just as open-source software is a collaboration of programmers creating free code, this film was created by a collaboration of movie enthusiasts, and it is being distributed for free online. The audience is encouraged to participate in future derivative works, and the original source materials are made available for that purpose.
The film was shot in Ventura, CA with 50% of the footage using green screens, with the backgrounds inserted afterwards. Different versions of the film have been released using various Creative Commons licenses: which even allow future commercial usage of the content. Historically, there have been very few films released under such a license; and none that were created using this online style of collaboration.
One example of collaboration in the filmmaking process for Jathia's Wager is found in the "Universal Life-form" character in the movie. The actor was shot in a green screen studio in Ventura, CA; the voice came from a voice actor in the UK; and the special effects were redone 3 times after a flurry of exchanged e-mails. The result: people working together from different parts of the world to create a better original movie.
