Premiere sold out!

on September 27th, 2010, by Ton

Hi all,

Just got a note that the 450 seats for the premiere all have been sold or reserved. I don’t know if you can get on a waiting list there… best is to contact the festival itself then. Alternative is to attend the thursday evening screening.

    Come on please someone tell us how it was received…. all Blenderheads are proud relatives too ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. jay Says:

    Ah Cheers to that! Let the baby out into the world! October will be a fine month indeed

    Dearly beloved Blender fans,
    What an honour to see so many of your replies on our site just before, during and after the premiere! Sounds like you were just as excited as all of us were. The event was truly special, sold out cinema (only Blender / Durian / Sintel fans obviously ;-)), Ton made a great and fetching speech, and during the film you could hear a pin drop, as one would say in Dutch… What more can a screenwriter aim and wish for? Well: for a director to turn that story into visual moments packed with all the emotion and action we envisioned in the beginning, and a team as talented as ours, who pushed through and made it all happen! I am very proud, happy and grateful.

    Go Sintel! I release you now to go and conquer the world…. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love, and thank you all for all the amazing, wonderful support from all over the world,
    X Esther

    Thanks lovely Esther,
    Ton always likes the opportunity to make large important say so’s ๐Ÿ˜€
    Possibly the audience was too frightened by Ton to move during the film.
    As long as they voluntarily applauded afterwards its cool though.
    Looking forward to the download in a few days.

    I will be looking forward to seeing it Thursday. Congratulations to you all and a job well done!

    Just returned, I’ve been there till late hours and I live many kilometers away from Utrecht, but it was definitely worth it, one of the greatest and most awesome nights in my entire life!

    And…. I’ve made a lot of mediocre pictures with another one’s digital cam, but I will look what I can put online, including Ton in party-mode.

    And sorry Colin for interrupting your talk with Jan! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Technical stuff:
    The 35mm print was very good, incredibly sharp and the projection of the theatre was excellent!
    Sound was also very good, but the theatre accoustics are a bit too reverberant. (but theatre 3 has really bad accoustics, a good sound engineer would bite his fingers off when he hears that)
    Jan has done an incredible job on the sound, the sound of the adult dragon heavy!!!!!!

    I drunk 7 cola this night, so I hope I can sleep…

    Tomorrow more, I got so much too tell!

    Good morning everyone!

    Just a quick thank you to the entire community, those who were there last night and those who didn’t make it! The premiere was awesome. Even though the team members have all seen the movie far too many times by now, hearts were pounding as it was played on the big screen. It was a sight to see!

    We had an awesome party after the movie… I am somewhat hung over, but that suits the occasion. What a night, what a movie, what a project!

    @J. : lol.

  14. J. Says:

    I don’t get it, I drunk 7 cola, as I said, but I slept very well…
    Well, lucky me! ๐Ÿ˜›

    now he said:
    “I donโ€™t get it, I drunk 7 cola, as I said, but I slept very wellโ€ฆ
    Well, lucky me!”

    OMG ๐Ÿ˜€

    I believe thats your intro?…

  16. Pablo Vazquez Says:

    awesomest awesomeness ๐Ÿ˜€

    Still hungover as well, trying my best to work on the DVD today as a normal day, but is almost impossible ๐Ÿ™‚ specially with some of the team members here after such a long time.

    Now Colin is saying goodbye everyone ๐Ÿ™

  17. Pablo Vazquez Says:

    BTW, the movie will be online in just a couple days, lets keep spoilers away still please ๐Ÿ˜€ just a few more days and thats all!

  18. Piiichan Says:

    I’ll wait a few additional months to see the movie.

    I don’t want to watch it online, I’ll wait for my DVD, so I can enjoy it in full quality in the best viewing environment possible!

    Until then, I’ll stay away from spoilers….

  19. maddes Says:

    No, we don’t want to hear any spilers (though you made me really more courious about the end !), but hey, some info about the event?
    Fotos from the red carpet?
    A video of Ton talking to the audience?
    Reactions of the Audience?

    Oh, i wish i could have been there!

  20. nawabz Says:

    i feel like spoiling it for everyone but i dont think its fair. email me if you feel on the edge

  21. Generic Name Says:

    With Sintel I think it would be no problem to sell ten times as many tickets. (Sadly there is no cinema that big.)

    Also – MANGO!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wonder what it will be about. And now to get pumped up for the next project:

  22. J. Says:

    I’m not sure where can I put this – I leave it here, OK? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    This is not literally translation but I think it might help somebody.
    And pardon my english.

    Thanks a lot, guys! I just love this movie ๐Ÿ™‚
