About the Book:

Machinima offers an in-depth look at where machinima has come from, how and where it is being employed, and its future. It is one of the first books catering to the demand for practical information on this fast-growing and exciting new moviemaking medium. It examines how machinima has been put to use in blockbuster movies, including Troy and The Lord of the Rings. It takes an in-depth look at the production pipeline of machinima movemaking, taking you through every step of the process — from screenwriting techniques and storyboarding through character design, lighting, sound effects, and closing credits. It also guides readers to online machinima movies.

Key features of Machinima include:
• A unique, four-colour, practical book fully based on this new but already hot and groundbreaking filmmaking technology.
• Features an illustrated showcase of the best and most innovative machinima movies from around the world.
• Offers a unique combination of game programming, animation, and filmmaking.
• Includes interviews with current award-winning machinima filmmakers such as Ill Clan, Strange Company, and Fountainhead Entertainment.
