Interview with Colin Levy

Let me start by saying, what an amazing week for Blender this has been!

It’s barely been 5 days since the release of Sintel and it’s already been viewed over 1 million times on YouTube, heavily discussed on CGSociety, hit the front page of 3d world and is still being tweeted every few minutes (even by celebrities!)

So I think I speak for everyone when I say, “Well done Durian team!” You guys sure know how to get the attention of the public ;)

Last week we interviewed Ton Roosendaal, and this week I’m excited to speak with the director of Sintel, Colin Levy!

In this 57 minute audio interview Colin explains:

  • Why he was choosen as the director
  • The biggest challenges that the team faced
  • What he would do differently if given the opportunity
  • How he deals with criticism
  • His future plans and aspirations
