    The video posted here is my very first DCUO Machinima titled "ReQuiem: Lamia".

    It's a complex telling of three sisters that are connected to a dark entity known as the Delubrum Ira, each with their own story perspectives told in a "matrix-esque" view points of an event that's bound to happen.

    "Lamia" is a piece that tells a straight forward albeit vague tale of a regime group (XYZ Program) and their discovery of the one "Solstice".

    Notes on this piece:

    • I kept this piece minutely vague for pondering purposes. I don't wish to reveal too much in this short machinima.
    • Speaking of short, there were a few unexpected issues in this piece: the length of the video being one and a under-cranking scene that was left unchecked.
    • This is meant to be viewed as a "digital graphic novel". No voice overs were planned for this project.
    • I felt that character designs were very important to convey an acute motif on the story. As such, expect for attention-to-detail creations by your's truly.
    • The fight scene in this video was the most difficult scenes to do. I did not revise my loadout and couldn't acquire a weapon in time.

    With that in mind, I hope you enjoy the video and let me know your thoughts.
