Very cool! As much as I like the artistic movies a lot of people are making lately, I love seeing a story with voice acting, sound effects, etc. I look forward to seeing more.

Great to see the whole setup. Very exciting.

Indeed, an incredible movie! So start carving out that time for more :-)

Awesome to see so much machinima action, but scared out of my wits about rights issues since lots of folks put their content into Youtube's system... terms of service been read lately?

As I understand it (and I could be wrong), YouTube's TOS isn't all that different from LL's: you own your movies, but YouTube retains a right to use it for promotion only. But if you pull your content from their servers, they can no longer use it for even that. Are you reading something different, Eric?


What a great post Hamlet; liked this little behind the scenes look a lot. Also really great with knowledge sharing this way and I'd love to see more of this kind of stuff. Thanks :)

Re YouTube's TOS: that's expected to change soon, for the worse. According to http://www.boingboing.net/2006/07/20/youtubes_new_policy_.html, all your rights are belong to them (except you still retain them if you pull the video from their servers).
