Sorry to correct Hugh here, but Reality dream was the first real movie to be made by the Unreal Movie Team, as Powerout came after Reality Dream. The first release from the Unreal Movie Team was a short movie entitled simply 'Trailer'. Since 'Trailer' was the first piece of machinima within the Unreal game engine, it was intended to show the features that would be possible.

Reality Dream took far longer to make that I had expected because of relying on other people for almost all factors in the movie. Powerout was created within a week to make sure that Unreal movies could be created with very few people.
