The Durian Blender Open Movie Project just recently completed their movie "Sintel" with DVD boxes going out shortly.

Durian shows just what you can do with Blender if you have enough time and experience - and they make all their files available to everyone as open source. This is the kind of project that everyone enjoys and the hope is that one day BURP will be able to help make such projects easier to manage.
If you haven't already, check out the movie on sintel.org!

BURP will be supporting this production with Bittorrent seeds to give people the best possible download experience.

It's been really exciting to see follow how many people have watched the movie. The Youtube views alone went have gone over 300 000 for the movie in just a few short days.

Who knows. Maybe one day volunteer computing could be used to help make an open movie by the Blender Foundation ehh Janus? :)

A lot of people seem to be interested in the movie. From our small mirrors alone we've already seen around 0.1TB of downloads in these first few days, and we're just a few seeds out of several thousand in the Bittorrent swarm now.
