Machinima – cool new art form

Machinima (combo of Machine + Cinema) is a new art form that is emerging. You use the engines inside video games to create an animated movie. With this you could be a sort of a poor man’s Pixar.  Some have even started releasing serials like this one based on EA’s Sims 2. Even an Academy of Machinima Arts & Sciences exists complete with a film festiival as well. Check here for more info. Susan Crawford on the subject. You can find some more info on Corante. Any bets on when we will see this in the theaters and when a blog dedicated to machinima will appear ?
