Post Traumatic Stress Machinima

Welcome To The Desert Of The Real is an interesting video. It combines images from America's Army, a checklist of stress disorders, and some atmospheric music. I do not think it entirely works as a whole, but it is nonetheless a fascinating experiment.

Thanks for posting about this. Fascinating experiment that really creates an mood with it's spareness and abstract music. You are right; it doesn't quite come together, but it's still very affecting. Hope he submits to the Expo.
