The Blender Durian project got its final name as ‘Sintel’, and was released at the end of September. After the screening, the project team uploaded their movie to Youtube, for the rest of the world to be amazed by the story and the image quality.
I’m sure we’ll be hearing how many shortcuts the team has made and how bad they think this and that turned out int he final movie during the Blender Conference in Amsterdam at the end of this month. It wouldn’t be a true Blender Conference without it 🙂 Let’s put that down to artists being too hard on their own work, and being perfectionists.
The rest of the world is quite extatic about the final short movie, whatever the project team may say in Amsterdam. The audience likes it so much that the Youtube video has been viewed more than 1.3 milion times in 2 weeks. That’s an a-ma-zing feat. Congratulations to the entire Blender and Project Durian Teams!
