Paramount hired Angelina Jolie to play Lara Croft in a film based on a video game. George Lucas hired video game designers to create Pod Racer, a video game based on his film. Now at machinima.com you can 'view 'movies' created by 'directors' manipulating 3D game environments. These aren't games or even film adaptations of games. These are non-linear CG game environments reverse-engineered to create short narrative digital videos. All those dizzying first-person shooter camera pans and polygonal 3D surfaces without any interactivity. Kind of like icing without the cake. Mmm. - Curt Cloninger
