Machinima : Cheat Sheet (OCR Media Conference 2009)

  1. 1. Machinima Cheat Sheet “Film-making in a real-time virtual 3d environment” Machinima (a portmanteau of machine and cinema) is a method of storytelling and film-making using a virtual 3d environment, often a computer game. Machinima movies are being made using games as diverse as • The Sims • World of Warcraft • Halo • Grand Theft Auto • Half-life • The Movies • Battlefield • Unreal • Little Big Planet Additionally, dedicated tools have emerged which, whilst not computer games, use computer game technology to provide a movie-making environment on your own computer. These include • Second Life (which is sort-of a game, but not really) • Iclone (www.reallusion,com/iclone) • Antics 3D (www.antics3d.com) • Moviestorm (www.moviestorm.co.uk) • ZenCub3d (www.zencub3d.com) Machinima is fast (at least, compared to real-world movie-making), easy and often requires only one person and one computer to make. There's lots of information available online: • www.machinima.com • www.machinimafordummies.com • en.wikipedia.net/Machinima • www.machinifeed.com • www.theovercast.com • www.machiniplex.com There have also been a few books written about Machinima: • 3D Game-Based Filmmaking: The Art of Machinima (Marino, 2004, ISBN-10 1932111859) • Machinima (Morris/Kelland/Lloyd, 2005, ISBN-10 1592006507) • Machinima For Dummies (Hancock/Ingram, 2007, ISBN-10 0470096918) The presentation at today's conference was given by • Matt Kelland, Founder & Creative Director of Short Fuze (the creators of Moviestorm) • Johnnie Ingram, Product Manager at Short Fuze and co-author of Machinima For Dummies matt.kelland@moviestorm.co.uk johnnie.ingram@moviestorm.co.uk If you'd like to try making some machinima yourself, download Moviestorm for free from www.moviestorm.co.uk
