Open Source Movie “Sintel” Released

Hooray! The Blender Foundation released their third movie made with the open source 3D modeling software Blender. Sintel, in my opinion, is the best of their movies yet, with a better plot than Elephant’s Dream and a more serious, kick-butt feel than Big Buck Bunny. And it’s about dragons! : D

Watching this film makes me want to delve back into Blender and look at 3D animation more seriously. I’ve always wanted to be good at this kind of stuff. A few years ago, I spent a few months learning how to use Blender and how 3D modeling worked, and I ended up creating some pretty satisfying results. I’ve forgotten all that information now; maybe I’ll start messing around with it again in my spare time.

Anyway, you can download the movie for free from their website, or you can watch it online here.
