Machinima Expo 6: celebrating real-time virtual world filmmaking

Machinima (real-time computer graphics filmmaking) is celebrating its 17th birthday this year. Communities of filmmakers from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the US are using it to express ideas about politics, gender, and virtual identity, just to name a few.

The filmmakers come together once a year to share films, listen to panels of filmmakers, and hand out awards to the best films. The online event is The Machinima Expo, now in its sixth year. On November 17, 2013, from 10am to 4pm (PT), the Machinima Expo will share presentations on such subjects as "Experimental Machinima" and "The SketchUp to iClone Pipeline," along with a panel discussion featuring founder Hugh Hancock, author of Machinima for Dummies. The Machinima Expo 6 will also be handing out three Jury prizes and a Grand Jury Prize to the most outstanding films out of the 130 films submitted this year.

All of this will take place on the Machinima Expo 6 Ustream channel which is embedded on the website, Facebook page and Twitter page.

It's free to attend: all you need is an internet connection and a web-browser.
