Here’s the announcement on the official web with pictures.

Great milestone for composer Jan Morgenstern and lyrics writer Esther Wouda, for the entire team, for open source movies and Creative Commons, and of course everyone who helped making Sintel possible!

    I think the singer deserves some credit too, even more than the Sintel crew, isn’t?

    Allow me to quote my own tweet, as I’m not sure how to put it differently:

    More rewarding than the awards themselves were reactions from friends, followers, and people from the Blender community. THANK YOU. <3

    (I know it has nothing to do that, but he read = /)
    Damn I saw, gave us much anxiety and wanted to cry at the end, I fikei very angry, it never leaves my head to our final one of these? They could have done a happy ending, but I do not care, I thought the script for the second movie, do it, even little old lady, not so old, she took care of small small dragon that was saved in the end, you invented a story to 2 film, and in the end, the Dragon of it, which “died” appears, cured with an expression I came back, I lost, then they 3 will happy = D
    Or a story in which she and the baby dragon that was saved in the end, go into something to resurrect the dragon it = D but for God’s sake, do the second movie with a happy ending, but the dragon died, come back or appear again, at least to talk to forgive her, just so my Awareness will be left alone, please = (

    My soul demands it = /

    A-mazing! Parallels to so many questions. Y’guys outdid yourselves. Pardon if I’m pointing everyone on my FB to this film, some are film grads (UCLA and UCD) and I’m a drummer myself (which might not make sense to you guys, but Sintel and your production vids on ‘Tube do to me).

    Thank you.

    Hi. I know Sintel is licensed as CC BY, but I wanted to ask to be sure. Can I put the Sintel novel remake I made with my collected book of dragon poems? It’ll be on Lulu but I had to ask to be sure (even though sintel is cc by. I know I can but I wanted to ask)

    418176 Vs and over a 1000 comments at ‘kino’ (1thou vid account) since 3rd of oct …
    highly skillful indeed .. but nothing open about ‘bidding’ for lumpfund cred
    by adding hollowhoodie ‘must contain’ memes o- or covertly, such as:
    domestication of animals … and obfuscery about generational effects,
    perfectly ‘executed’ by working in the ‘kill the indigon, save the child’ one.
    ‘pieken in de delta’ would conjure treetop stuff association … but no, let’s
    continue betraying that (re- & pro)vision and go for rocky peaks instead.
    Holzland redistribution land. Heave ho!

    I can’t find a better place to mention this:

    I tried to reencode the 1080p downloadable version of the movie using ffmpeg 0.7.6. I got an
    av_interleaved_write_frame(): Operation not permitted
    which seems to often be caused by duplicate timestamps. I don’t know if it’s a bug in ffmpeg, or perhaps a bug in the software used to compress the video. If you have anyone with the skills to inspect your own video, it might be worthwhile to check for timestamp oddities.

    Holy tin foil hat Batman! No wonder this bunch is working so hard to proactively throw dirt at the Sheriff’s department psychologist. Last thing these conspiracy nuts want is a psychologist that has previously evaluated them going on record.
