Machinima at the Cambridge Film Festival, Friday 25 Sept

Machinima: Programming with Light

Machinima is a form of digital filmmaking that uses sets and characters from videogames or specialist tools like Moviestorm to generate computer animations, either in real time using multiple players to drive avatars, or by setting up scenes and action character by character, calling ‘action’ by clicking a mouse button.

Following the success of our presentation of the best in Machinima at the 2008 Cambridge Film Festival, this year we bring you new films from a range of directors exploring the capabilities of a medium which may lack the detail and dynamic range of high-end CGI, but offers enormous opportunities for creative filmmaking.

The Machinima programme will be introduced by Hugh Hancock, guru of the Machinima movement, creator of one of the first Machinima feature films, BLOODSPELL, and co-author with Johnnie Ingram of Machinima for Dummies.

The programme will include films by renowned Machinima directors, including Lainy Voom and Phil Rice.

They have a great programme of movies, and Hugh & Johnnie are always fun to listen to, So, if you’re not busy this Friday evening, pop along to the Cambridge Film Festival and see how good machinima looks on a big screen.

It’s also worth checking out Frag, a movie about professional gamers, showing on Friday afternoon.
