This video was made for the Blizzcon 2010 machinima contest. The contest rules stated that all entries must be three minutes or less in length. However, "Aquaman's Lament" is 3:47. Luckily, Mark Aaron James is really cool, and he agreed to let me edit his song down to fit the contest's guidelines.
Unfortunately, I couldn't turn Mark's heroic sacrifice into a win, because the video didn't even make it to the finals. I guess that means I'll have to learn what all these buttons in Adobe After Effects do after all...
You can purchase the full length version of this song on iTunes.
The song at the end of the video is "This Song Would Be Better", another great song by Mark Aaron James.
