Sintel – Third Open Movie from the Blender Foundation
By permission from Ton Roosendaal, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Project Durian was the third Open Movie, which started in September 2009 and premiered at the Netherlands Film Festival end of September 2010. With a much larger team and bigger budget, the targets were very ambitious, resulting in a 15 minute short film that has found much acclaim on the web. Especially story telling and editing has been paid much attention to.

Blender is a community effort
Blender is being made by 100s of active volunteers from all around the world; by studios and individual artists, professionals and hobbyists, scientists and students, vfx experts and animators, and so on.
All of them are united by an interest to have access to a fully free/open source 3D creation pipeline. Blender Foundation supports and facilitates these goals – even employs a small staff for that – but fully depends on the online community to achieve this goal.
