People who have contributed (or are contributing) to the Sunflower event (the rendering of Big Buck Bunny 3D) can get their names in the movie credits.
The only requirement is that at least one of your machines has taken part in the rendering and has contributed something useful and gotten BOINC credit for it.

The mini-FAQ:

Will you sell my name on the black market?
Nope, we intend to include your name in the extended movie credits for Big Buck Bunny 3D.

This is part of the Echelon project, right?
Not really. The link between your full name and your account is not shared with anyone and once the movie has been completed the link and name will be deleted in our database. Your name will still remain in the movie credits of course.

If I chose to use my BOINC nickname and then later change the nickname what will happen? Or what happens if I change my mind later?
We don't immediately create the list, so the change may or may not be included in the credits. Past a certain point we can unfortunately no longer make changes to the list of names. This will be announced.

My name contains äll kínds õf wëîrd chårâcters
No guarantees, but we'll do whatever we can to make it look right.

I'm a company, not a person, can I use my company name?
Absolutely

I would like to write the entire story of my life in the name field, can I do that?
Sorry, no, that field is for names only - but please do post it in the forums instead.

What will happen if I don't choose anything?
Your BOINC nick will be used

Really nice! :-)

But I would prefer having nickname and real name in the credits.
Can I do so by entering both into the text field?
