Let’s Play – Shooting a scene in Nightmare Puppeteer

Ricky Grove Machinima August 26, 2021 Leave a reply

All four of us at Completely Machinima decided to each to a short Let’s Play video. My choice was to shoot a scene in M dot Strange’s game Nightmare Puppeteer (on Steam at $4.99). After creating a puppet in Adobe Character Animator (another program I like very much), I use that character to narrate my Let’s Play inside of Nightmare Puppeteer. If you are interested in either of the programs just click the highlights and you can find out more.

Star Wars: Heir to the Empire – Making a Scene

Damien Valentine Machinima August 19, 2021 Leave a reply

This month, each of us put together a ‘Let’s Play’ video covering a different aspect of Machinima. For mine, I chose to do a behind the scenes video for Heir to the Empire. Watch as I put together a scene from Chapter 14 using iClone. From animating the characters, fixing some clipping issues to lip sync and facial expressions.
