Machinima used to pitch for major studio feature film

Interesting - John August reveals that he and the rest of the Prince of Persia movie team used a trailer made mostly of Machinima footage from the game to pitch to the studio execs - the pitch that got the movie made.

We’ve been saying this is possible for ages - but here’s proof.

(Also interesting that a lot of what we’ve talked about in the past has been creating the entire movie in Machinima first. Perhaps you just need a trailer?)
