International Machinima Expo: Call for Entries
Today, we putting out a call for Entries for the Expo. Our approach is different than that of the Cambridge Fest or the NY Machinima Festival because we are not requiring that the films be entirely machinima. We are encouraging the idea of "anymation" where the filmmaker uses multiple programs and tools to create their film. Just be sure you have a minimum of 25% of the film shot in a real-time environment.
I'm very excited about the Expo. We'll be posting more information as often as we can.
Here is our press release:
