For those that don’t follow us on Twitter or Facebook… you’re really missing out! Besides frequent news updates and trailer recommendations, we also post tons of neat HD videos that are shared with us.
Anyway, I decided that this new video was worth blogging about and sharing with all you folks out there:
“Sintel” is an independently produced short film, initiated by the Blender Foundation as a means to further improve and validate the free/open source 3D creation suite Blender. With initial funding provided by 1000s of donations via the internet community, it has again proven to be a viable development model for both open 3D technology as for independent animation film.
This 15 minute film has been realized in the studio of the Amsterdam Blender Institute, by an international team of artists and developers. In addition to that, several crucial technical and creative targets have been realized online, by developers and artists and teams all over the world.
You can find the download links on their website: Sintel – Open Movie Project, which includes DivX, MP4 Surround 5.1, MP4 Stereo, and OGV Stereo.
They even provided subtitles in 8 different languages.
