Filed under
Software
Movies

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. Between, if you haven't heard about it yet, you probably haven't heard about 3 previous open source movie projects by Blender namely Yo Frankie, Elephants Dream and Big Buck Bunny. The initial funding for the project was provided by 1000s of donations via the internet community.

Blender is the most powerful open source 3D graphics application out there and what better way to showcase its potential than to make short films exclusively using Blender. Durian is the project behind upcoming Sintel open movie. The open movie project that started almost an year ago is all set to premiere at Netherlands Film Festival in another 14 days! Official premiere Sintel: Monday 27 september, 19:30h, in Rembrandt theatre, Utrecht, Netherlands.

This 15 minute film has been realized in the studio of the Amsterdam Blender Institute, by an international team of artists and developers.
