Machinima Expo 2010

This weekend is the biggest annual machinima show. It’s a celebration of the very best in amateur and ultra-low budget movie-making, and it’s a chance to see some amazing work and meet the people who are doing it. Best of all, it’s online and it’s free, so you don’t have to leave your house, you don’t have to stand in line for tickets, the food’s not over-priced, and you don’t have to worry about how you’re getting home afterwards!

If you haven’t been to an Expo before, it’s a unique event where all prejudices are put aside. Whether you use iClone, Muvizu, Second Life, World of Warcraft, The Movies or even Moviestorm, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that everyone who participates is making movies purely for the love of it. It’s about showing what can be done without expensive equipment and huge budgets. There are movie-makers from around the world, and it’s a truly inspirational event.

We’ll be there all weekend (look for MK Onedin in Second Life) - hope to see you there too! 

What’s on?

There’s a huge selection of movies being screened, including the movies picked by the jury, a special selection of Latin American & Spanish movies, and the winners of the machinima section of the 48 Hour Film Project. There are booths set up in the main area which showcase some of the best creative talent in machinima, and where you can talk to some of the key people in the business.

There are panels and discussions throughout, and on Sunday, there are workshops and Q&A sessions on all the major machinima tools (Voovees, The Movies, Muvizu, Moviestorm, Garry’s Mod/HL2, iClone and Second Life).  At the end of each day, there’s a party in Second Life.

Full schedule (remember to adjust it for your timezone!)


How to get there

For the full Expo experience, you can dive right into the action in Second Life. There are five locations: full details here.

If you don’t like using Second Life, you can participate via the Web at the main Machinima Expo site. You’ll still get to see all the movies and panels, and you can get involved in the chat sessions.
