    David, we are really proud for your presence here in Italy and, especially, in Comicon of Naples.
    Maybe I’ll have the pleasure to meet you there, we are organise the trip.
    Just a simple question: there’s a chance you sell your dvd there?

  4. Loris Says:

    We too are very proud to have you here in Italy, David.
    Too bad we have just came back from Napoli. It would have been great to witness your speech and demo, and to ask a couple of questions too. 🙁
    Thank you for your work on Sintel! We’re looking forward to take a bite from Chaos and Evolutions.

    That kid at the bottom of the first picture looks eerily like one of the rodents from Big Buck Bunny.

    Anyone able to record this ? I live in UK now (and too bad I’ll be back in Italy on saturday grrrrr).

  12. thinkinmonkey Says:

    Ehm! Is it true the new data change?!?!
    The offical site has not been updated and reports the meeting fixed on Sunday at 12.30.
    Could someone confirm, please?

  13. Deevad Says:

    Hey, thanks all for the feedbacks, I’m preparing the conference to show some good things about Sintel. About ‘story’ , I will not reveal the story of Sintel , but the story of how the project was done. So, we keep secret the story.

    I confirm the new hour , the change was done cause of a plane problem on Sunday.

    I will surely show some cool shots from the movie, as well as reveal more concept art. May be a little alchemy demo on a big screen ? 🙂
