New art form lifts game

Video games are not noted for sophisticated plots or dialogue, but for many years filmmakers have been harnessing game technology to help tell their stories.

A combination of traditional animation, filmmaking and game technology, Machinima is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing new art forms sweeping the world.

Using game technology, just about anyone with a computer can create animated films for a fraction of the cost of a Hollywood blockbuster. Machinima is exciting because it opens up filmmaking to new artists and allows virtually unlimited possibilities.

The story is too old to be commented.
