On Machinima

Artery Machinima on Machinima.com offers downloads of a behind-the-scenes TV documentary on the art of making movies with game engines. John Carmack made a Slashdot post on the topic (thanks Jacek Fedoryñski), saying that seeing "noticeable popping on the environment maps" in Quake III engine machinima was his primary motivation for adding per-pixel environment map calculation to the DOOM 3 engine.

Nice documentary. The only thing that bugs me it, that the real "inventors" of this genere aren't mentiones with one single word.
"Diary of a Camper" by the Ranger clan started it all, even before Girlich released his Demo manipulation tools.

Also, not to step on anyones toes, but why the hell is the ILL-Clan mentioned in every friggin piece you read about machinima? Yes, hardly working was a nice flick, but it also was the only one by ILL afaik.

and, before i forget it, why didn't they mention the planned Animated series based on Masamune Shirows Appleseed, that will be produced using a modified game engine, or the incredible Anacronox?
