Sintel Short Film

Blender Foundation

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.
