Bloodspell machinima feature film released as a single cut

Joe sez, "The machinima animation Bloodspell has now been edited into a feature length 'film' which can be downloaded or streamed. Hugh Hancock tells me it is a fresh cut of the whole tale in one film, with some new footage and soundscape added in too."

Bloodspell is the first feature-length machinima film, made entirely with a game-engine, and it's a pioneering and important start for a new industry. Well worth a look! Link (Thanks, Joe!)


  1. How is this the first feature-length machinima? There are five Red vs. Blue DVDs, each of which is as long or longer. (They’ve had to edit them down a bit when they’ve shown them in actual theaters.)

  2. This is definitely not the first. There was a feature-length Quake movie, “The Devil’s Covenant” released in 1996, meaning it actually predates the term “Machinima”! Then there’s “The Seal of Nehahra”, released in 2000, which clocks in at just under four hours. Admittedly they’re not exactly art, but they’re about on par with bad DTV action/horror movies.
