QuickTactical and the rest of the Epic Films crew put together 'Originality', a vid that discusses what NOT to do with your next Halo machinima project. They submitted this to the MPRRS - but because of a reviewer who simply didn't get it (and scored it almost 50 points lower than the average), it didn't pass. Luckily, we have two separate scoring algorithms in place - one averages all scores, while the other drops high and low scores; when the outliers were dropped, the movie passed handily. It's rather long (almost 13 minutes), and so rather large - so we're hosting a 'medium quality' version (QuickTactical's terminology) - the WMP9 format is 88.5 mb, the QuickTime format is 89.9 mb. The visual glitches are not a result of the compression, however; they're due to the capture card - you can grab a high-quality version of this film at FileFront (140 mb, WMP9 format) and see for yourself. Bottom line - this film contains a bunch of machinima cliches to avoid; watch it before you make your next film! (Louis Wu 14:41:16 UTC)
