Fantasy Animation Using Free Tools

Thought this might interest you for several reasons: Its got a dragon, it uses tools that could aid DIY, and Blender is an example of a project that was successfully "ransomed" as Rob Conley talks about here.
"'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. With initial funding provided by 1000s of donations via the internet community, it has again proven to be a viable development model for both open 3D technology as for independent animation film."
via Metafilter, with more info on the project there.


  1. This would be amazing animation, the fact that it is made using free stuff is just.....WOW! Pretty neat story as well.

  2. I agree with Jackson. On the roleplaying side, I can see a bunch of locations, tropes and other stuff that could be borrowed.

  3. Yeah I agree, that city was amazing looking and I could easily steal some inspiration from that alone.
