I think it’s fair to say this one is more of a technical than an artistic achievement. The effects are great: run this as a demo on a large screen in a public place or something, and watch people’s jaws drop; tell them where it came from, and their jaws will drop even more.
In terms of art, the top two Blender Foundation movies, I think, still remain Sintel and Big Buck Bunny. Of course, all of them, including Elephant’s Dream, work great as demos, too. Which, considering the primary reason they were made—as “shakedown cruises” for new Blender functionality—shouldn’t be too surprising.
