What is Machinima?

Still in its infancy, Machinima (Ma-sheen-EH-ma) filmmaking is an emerging art form that uses computer game technology to create animated virtual realities in real time. Not sure what that means? Moderator, author, and producer Paul Marino (Executive Director, Academy of Machinima Arts & Sciences) will guide you through a world of Machinima work that includes shorts, music videos, and animated epics that would require millions of dollars using traditional CGI. Since Machinima is best seen to be believed, we've also asked Red vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles creator Burnie Burns and his Rooster Teeth artists to provide a live demonstration. Come see what it's all about. Presented by the Sundance Online Film Festival (SOFF) at www.sundance.org.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
