I think the strength of the video is the poetry. I felt like I recognized the piece but opted not to Google it; the poem works so well inside the framework of The Quiet Hope that I didn't want to blow up the mystique.
While The Quiet Hope isn't going to change the face of machinima, it's not a bad video. Take the time to check it out.
