This issue contains a disc that along with the standard 3D World disc contents has films from the 2009 Bitfilm Festival.
We were excited to get this issue since we were a part of Bitfilm 2009 and because of this little bit found on the Bitfilm official site:
"All selected films will be published on a free DVD on the cover of 3D World Magazine in September 2009. Each selected filmmaker will receive a free copy."
:) Fun! Machinima on a disc with 3D World magazine! But wait, no machinima on the disc. :(
The only categories are 3D Space, FX Mix and Politicool.
Oh well, I guess it was a bit much to ask for machinima to be advertised like this in a major magazine. And I don't think Bitfilm was being misleading or anything. I guess it just turns out that machinima did not make the cut yet for this level of distribution.
Still a cool disc and it is cool that we were all part of such a big festival! But in all honesty I only got it to see if the accepted or winning machinima films made the disc. ;p
