Storyline

The film follows a girl named Sintel who is searching for a baby dragon she calls Scales. A flashback reveals that Sintel found Scales with its wing injured and helped care for it, forming a close bond with it. By the time its wing recovered and it was able to fly, Scales was caught by an adult dragon. Sintel has since embarked on a quest to rescue Scales, fending off beasts and warriors along the way. She eventually comes across a cave housing an adult and baby dragon, the latter of which she believes to be Scales. The adult dragon discovers and attacks Sintel, but hesitates to kill her. Sintel slays the dragon, only to recognize the scar on its wing and realize the dragon is an adult Scales, and that she too has aged considerably. Sintel leaves the cave heartbroken, unknowingly followed by Scales's baby. Written by Unknown but can be found on Wikipedia

Remarkable!
11 April 2011 | by mjlpressSee all my reviews

To imagine that all of this was created from scratch is remarkable.

The score was very well done as was the foley.

Halina really came through and I was so impressed, I had to find out who she was. Amazing to shine as an actor through a 3D animation. She did it!

For the filmmakers and artist to take this on and to get it done for future artist is admirable. It gives hope to other artist and filmmakers.

I would not recommend the film to children but maybe the filmmakers will do another film just for them. I hope they do.

The director's attention to detail was also noted.

Great job!
