Gotta get me one of those to play the 4K version of Sintel!
An interview with filmmaker Colin Levy, Pixar Animation Studios.
Update: Original English version added.
Both Blender and Sintel have won Awards from 3D Worlds annual CG Awards. Blender picked up the award for Software Update of the Year, and Sintel won for Best Short CG Animation of the Year (Short Form). Congratulations to everyone involved!
Ton’s response to Blender winning the Software Update of the Year Award:
We’ve had many compliments for delivering this UI and tools redesign project. It’s been a huge task – over three years of work – something free or open-source projects typically are advised to never even attempt! An official recognition from 3D World readers means a lot to us: thanks!

Congratulations to Jan Morgenstern, who composed the sintel soundtrack, and to Esther Wouda who wrote the lyrics to the credit song “I Move On”, and to the whole Sintel crew on winning two Jerry Goldsmith awards at the International Film Music Festival. The awards were for best short film music and best song.
NovaCut video editor, a proposed open source, collaborative video editing platform, is currently looking for funding to finish development of the project. They used Sintel in part of the ad for their kickstarter page. Go and take a look and consider donating if you want to support developing a new open source video editor too!
Jan Morgenstern’s soundtrack for Sintel has been nominated for a prestigious Jerry Goldsmith award. The nomination is for Best Score in a Short Film (Animation) category, to be held at the International Film Music Festival in July. Congratulations to Jan on the Nomination!
