CM Episode 3.3 Machinima Discussion Show Notes

And Now For Something Completely Machinima is a long-form podcast devoted to machinima (movies made in game engines), real-time technologies, and virtual reality. This month (April 2021) we are splitting our 3rd podcast into four sections which will post once a week: Machinima News (April 1), Machinima Films (April 8), Machinima Discussion (April 15), and a Special “Build a Machinima PC” podcast (April 22).

Episode 3 was produced by Ricky Grove joined by hosts Phil Rice, Tracy Harwood, and Damien Valentine.

Summary: After Ricky’s Milan Machinima Festival report he brings up a question that was put to one of the Festival jurors (Henry Lowood – “…has machinima dissolved into the larger culture of streaming and game videos“) and then asks the other hosts their opinion. The next topic for discussion is the status and quality of the “Let’s Play” machinima in 2021. Phil has particularly good insights. Finally, the gang takes on a contemporary topic that might impact machinima creators in “What the Hell is NFT?“. As usual, Tracy has the best insights on this topic.

Are we just all full of shit? Please contact us! We are desperately hoping to be told off in no uncertain terms. Phil especially is stressed because he reads all of the bot spam being posted as comments. Please help save Phil’s sanity, for God’s sake!
