Tired of your game? Why not make your own movie out of it?

Using games to make movies might be the technology of tomorrow or today. :)

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

I'd suggested doing this with BG2 a while back (implementing a Shakespearean scene, say)... aside from, say, the performance bits of Keto, nobody's really taken up the idea. Thanatos was doing a Romeo and Juliet implementation but appears to have vanished after haranguing me for voicework.

A highly entertaining series of Halo based movies is here www.redvsblue.com.  That is, if you don't mind swearing and spanish robots.  Lots of it.

Another angle, but also fun (especially if you liked the game used):
