A CGI Warrior Finds a Wounded Dragon In This Fantastical Short Film

Why Watch? You can’t see this short film on YouTube anymore. As reported at Cartoon Brew, Sony had it taken down from the site despite zero Sony-made images or sounds appearing in it. Fortunately, you can still watch Sintel online in all its CGI glory. Directed by Pixar animator Colin Levy, it follows a tragic, obsessed warrior who is on the hunt for a dragon. Not to kill it, but to save it. Even at four years old, the animation resonates, and the story resounds powerfully. Like most action shorts, it begins with a balletic fight scene proving our hero’s dominance, but unlike most action shorts, it heads in an uneasy direction marked by ferocity of purpose and the blindness of loyalty. Such is this adventurer’s hamartia. What Will It Cost? About 13 minutes. A New Short Film Every Weekday

Amazing CG Animated Dark Fantasy Short Film - Sintel

You've got to watch this fantastic CG animated fantasy short film called "Sintel." It was created using the free, open source 3D creation suite Blender. I was really impressed with what they pulled off. I also really liked that story. 

The film follows a girl named Sintel who is searching for a baby dragon she calls Scales. A flashback reveals that Sintel found Scales with its wing injured and helped care for it, forming a close bond with it. By the time its wing recovered and it was able to fly, Scales was caught by an adult dragon. Sintel has since embarked on a quest to rescue Scales, fending off beasts and warriors along the way. She eventually comes across a cave housing an adult and baby dragon, the latter of which she believes to be Scales. 

The film has a sad ending, so I just wanted to prepare you for that.

Fantasy Animated short Sintel is Online

Blender Foundation has officially premiere online its independently produced animated short Sintel

This independent production was financed by the Blender community, supported by the Netherlands Film Fund, CineGrid Amsterdam, and with sponsorship from several international companies. The primary aim of the film is to showcase what Blender, an open source 3D animation package, is capable of but if the previous efforts of the Blender studio are anything to go by we can expect the results to be very entertaining indeed.

The script was inspired by a number of story suggestions by Martin Lodewijk around a Cinderella character (Cinder in Dutch is "Sintel"). Screenwriter Esther Wouda then worked with director Colin Levy to create a script with multiple layers, with strong characterization and dramatic impact as central goals.

In the film we meet a lonely girl - spoken by Halina Reijn - who is saved on a barren snowfield by a
