I luckily found a Fan Update of WMV while stuck with the 3.0.2 problem and managed to create a machinima. However, things were limited due to the massive amounts of bugs as well as the limited camera angles with MapViewer and WMT unavailable.
I managed to wrap this video up in a night between my revision periods. Yeah, exams were pretty much on my back and I had nearly no time to spare but I managed to find a night to work on this. In the end, it was worth the shot when I ended up with "Honorable Mention" once again.
