This is a little short film I have done recently. Visual effects and editing were done in Blender, titles and paintings were made with Gimp and Ardour and Qtractor were used for sounddesign.
(edit: Now there are subtitles on Vimeo )
Lea addicts herself to the illusion that she could communicate with her deceased boyfriend Jens using letters.
As an old Lady tries to beautify Jens’ decayed grave put of pity, Lea’s illusory world collapses because she percepts the care of the grave as a concession that Jens is actually dead. Soon Lea is confronted with her mental projection of Jens who alleges Lea that she would neglect their relationship and finally it turns out that Jens is a manifestation of Lea’s feelings of guilt and tries to drive her into suicide.

Here are some Screenshots of my workflow:
This is the whole timeline after inital editing. Every Scene a metastrip.
Here we are inside a Scene. From here I exported single strips which needed to be modified seperately (e.g. for Visual Effects) as raw avi files. Then the whole timeline’s audio was aligned on two tracks which were exported separately so that I had gotten two audio files with non overlapping sound.
