Matt’s Marvelous and Amazing Adventures on Terra Transcode

photo credit: Nicole Duplaix, National Geographic

When Moviestorm’s Matt ‘The Mongoose‘ Kelland agreed to curate ‘Game, Set, Machinima’ at the Cambridge Film Festival, he probably had no idea what he was getting himself into. True, he and FDMX’s Saint John Walker had to decide on how to organize the event, on what criteria to use for submissions, which films to accept, etc. But once all that was done, there was the hands-on practical matter of how to show dozens of videos to an audience seated in a movie theatre. Often when there is a presentation or discussion of machinima, the person or panels giving it simply hook up a laptop to an overhead projector. This event though - possibly the largest ever such presentation at a mainstream film fest - called for something a little more upscale. Read all about Matt’s transcoding adventures.
