Machinima : Spielbergs with a joystick

Video games are manipulated to create short films with Satire, irony the hallmarks of machinima.

The incredibility long url of the Toronto Star introduces (to me, anyway) Red Vs. Blue, a series of short films created using Microsoft X-Box Halo.

Another example of Machinima, is “In My Trip To Liberty City” by Jim Munroe, a Toronto-based author and machinima dabbler, adopting the genteel perspective of a Canadian tourist while meandering the seamy, violent streets of the game Grand Theft Auto.

I submitted the story to SlashDork (Like in the Morning! @09:24AM, but noooo. Rejected!) but they accepted someone else’s submission. Life is curel, fame is fleeting.
