Finally, the team discuss the thought process for choosing a creative platform for making a new machinima. As ever, feedback on our discussion topics is very welcome!

Epic Games’ CTO (and co-founder of ILMVFX) Kim Libreri comments about the role of audience in machinima (quote from Pioneers in Machinima) –

[Tracy: What advice might you have for those new to storytelling using machinima and virtual production techniques?] Kim: Create, watch, and share. You’ll end up being in a vacuum if you don’t share your work with anybody. Learn how to use the tool and remember that it’s really important that when you are creating a story you’re making it for an audience. So, find the audience and learn from their reactions. Create a lot. Watch a lot of movies. Play a lot of video games because the game aesthetic and link to the movie aesthetic is interesting. Share what you’re making.”
