Machinima News 

Machinima Films of the Month

Aside: The original “The Town that Dreaded Sundown” is available at Amazon on Blu-Ray/DVD and also (at this time) on Amazon Prime.



Machinima Filmmaker Interview – David Vann

  • Ricky contacted the director of the “Town That Dreaded Sundown” trailer (David Vann) by phone and spoke with him about his background as a filmmaker and how he created his film in RDR2. David also spoke about his stop-motion Lego films which are hilarious and satirical. 

Machinima Group Discussion

  • Ricky posed two questions to his other three hosts 1, What is the difference between the terms “machinima”, “real-time animation” and “virtual cinema?” and 2, What is the status of machinima in 2021? Is machinima in decline or are we advancing?  The answers were diverse and  ranged through machinima films/filmmakers past and present.
