I agree. With quality work like BEAST (and thanks for posting about it) using tools that are non-game related, I think we will see machinima moving in a different direction in the future.

I think the key to BEAST's success is in the animation; the detail, the quality, the simplicity all add up to a real stomach churner. In addition, the ideas behind the story are fully supported by the rest of the film. By that I mean the look and sound of the film are exactly right for what is being said. Leo Lucien-Bey's skill at creating lip-sync is a another huge factor in the film being so believable and true. Plus, the film has a stylized look that is unique to machinima. I don't think I've seen a film quite like it.

That this film was passed over at the European Machinima film festival is a huge error in judgement.
