Sintel Release Expected Thursday, September 30th

Tension is mounting: in a press release, the Blender Institute has announced that Sintel will be released on line next week Thursday, September 30th. The official movie poster has also been released. Pablo Vazquez shows the production steps on the Durian blog.

    Cant wait!!! :)

    btw, as i remember for BBB, shouldn't we first got DVDs before online premiere?
    i guess this way they prevent it from leaking to early?

  • claas

    pretty impressive - cannot wait till I can see it.
    the new render improvements must have worked out well for this style
    judging by the work we saw sofar.

    Good Job.

  • DimitrisC

    Can't wait guys and gals! Congratulations to anyone involved!

  • Jamez

    Can't wait to finally see it!

    The 3d work on the poster is nicely done, but the positioning of the title looks out of place imho. Surely it would be better placed in the top quarter of the poster(across the forehead) where it would be more legible.

    Currently the S in Sintel is somewhat obscured by the graphics on the bottom left, especially when viewed on the thumbnail size. Just my immediate reaction anyway.

    Of course everything else about the project is top notch :)

  • Tx36

    BTW without trying to sound like an evil bs (and I'm off topic I know) I would also like to see blender dot org with a new look. Sintel's website looks 1000 times cooler imho.

  • trinitrotolulene

  • Paul

    Well done to all involved. You should be proud of what you have done there. I would be, if i could do what you have done lol
