What is Machinima?

 

 

Machinima: Games-based filmmaking. Machinima is a filmmaking technique that uses video game assets to provide virtual environments and actors. This method has existed since 1996, and has rapidly evolved alongside developments in games, animation, and film.

What is the IMC?
The International Machinima Convention aims to bring together students, academics, and those with an interest in games, animation, and film, in order to discuss the potential for machinima as a medium.  With a list of world-class academics, machinima producers, and YouTube content creators, this event will provide an amazing insight into the world of machinima.
