Machinima

Since giving up TV you may have noticed I have spent more time on YouTube and Google video. Additionally, I have also been watching some Machinima - movies that make use of the rendering engines available in the various multi-player video games rather than expensive things like actors and sets. They are scripted, planned, produced, and directed by a lot of people who wouldn't be able to get funding for real-life versions. People are gaining more and more experience with this medium and the results are already quite impressive. There is still a lot of maturing that needs to happen (some of it with the rendering engines; though the quirkiness is not necessarily detracting), but they do a decent line of holding attention (though note, mine is not so difficult to grab :-) ).

Some links:
There is also this that is interesting but it is more a remix than machinima.

Oh yeah, there is also an article in the Telegraph today.
