Nixxiom's video, The Golden Cup, is one heck of a piece. Featuring poetry written by Nixxiom, set to animated images, and narrated with a smooth, rich voice, The Golden Cup tells the story of a knight and a dragon. There's more to it than that, of course, but I don't want to spoil.

I loved this technique. While I obviously love rich, fancy animation and graphics, The Golden Cup's format helps you focus instead on the story Nixxiom is telling. It conveys that sense of epic poetry and allows you to enjoy the writing itself. Take the time to watch it; you'll like it.
