Massively's very own CoX lead, Jonathan Northwood, has a great eye for Machinima! Night Prayers is about good versus evil, from what I can tell, as it lacks a description. If I'm reading into it correctly, a man prays to go to the dark side, as the tale unfolds using only film and the occasional written word.

Vertical Studio has found a way to make the City of Heroes and City of Villains platforms cinematic, and judging by other videos from the games, it's not easy. They are a small team whose goal is to make quality Machinima, using original music and elaborate shots. They even took home the Grand Prize award at the first French Machinima Festival in November 2006 for their first film, Dies Irae!

[Thanks, Jonathan!]
