Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series
I haven't had time to check out Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series or the feature film from whence it sprung for that matter, but it certainly looks good. The six-part series serves as a prequel to the feature film and features Blair Williams, played in the film by Moon Bloodgood, who voices the character in the Machinima series.
The series was made entirely using in-game assets from the Terminator Salvation video game and was overseen by Terminator Salvation director McG, who's building an innovative little empire for himself in Hollywood these days. This is the first official studio-produced Machinima series and it's such a great example of cross-platform synergy that it's easy to foresee a lot more of these kinds of projects in the future.
Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series is available to download from iTunes and the X-Box Live Marketplace. Free recaps of each episode are available to watch on Machinima.com.
