Blender Foundation did it again with Sintel. A Creative Commons short film created with the #1 3D animation tool Blender (which happens to be a FLOSS).
A great improvement from their second film Big Buck Bunny and the first Elephant’s Dream. It only shows what we can do with a free-of-charge and at the same time Free/Libre Open-Source Software called Blender.
Watch the movie after the jump.
“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.
