Sintel | Blender Animation

“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.”

The Blender community have engaged in a number of ‘open’ movie projects involving online collaboration with hundreds of animators around the globe. This is the third such project and it is no doubt quite an extraordinary testament to the power of open source technology and online collaboration.
