Have you ever tried making a short movie with a video game (Machinima)?

Machinima was very popular just a few years ago, but I don't see it popping up too often on social media these days. I thought it was funny when a team of Halo soldiers would start performing a choreographed dance number in the middle of a mission, etc... lol. Have you ever tried making your own Machinima?

  • Thanks for your reply, Gukweto! That's too bad about your friend's video being taken down. I did some research after I wrote my question above and it appears that some game studios have imposed guidelines on how their games and their game characters can be represented in Machinima (similar to movie studio guidelines for fan films of Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, etc.). Perhaps, that is why there is less Machinima these days. I suppose the non-profit "fair use" rights of recorded gameplay could still be debated. To me, it always seemed like a great way to learn how to frame a scene for filmmaking.
