The latest movie initiated by the Blender Foundation is available for
download. Sintel, the Durian Open Movie Project, is an animated short
film created with open source tools. The project site notes: "The movie
itself, and all of the work of the Durian team in the past 18 months
will be released under the Creative Commons Attribution license, free
for everyone to distribute, learn from or re-use. The 4-disc DVD set
will provide all data to be able to recreate and rerender the film in
its entirety."

The movie may be downloaded in various formats from:

Main site: http://www.sintel.org/
This includes the production blog and background info, plus the order
link for the 4-disc DVD set.

Previous Blender projects include the animated shorts "Elephant's Dream"
and "Big Buck Bunny", and the 3D game, "Yo Frankie!", all released under
similar Creative Commons license.

"He who innovates will have for his enemies all those who are well off
under the existing order of things, and only lukewarm supporters in
those who might be better off under the new."
