Completely Machinima S1 Ep 19 Discussion (September 2021)

Ricky Grove Podcast Episodes September 16, 2021 1 Comment

Tracy, Ricky, and Damien discuss the topic, “Is machinima capable of movie-length films?” Damien chose two-hour-plus long machinima films this month and this made us wonder if machinima is capable of sustaining interest over a longer period of time. We also talk about other related topics. Missing Phil in the discussion as he was unable to make it this month.

Here are the links to topics that came up in the discussion:

-Chronicles of Humanity, Damien Valentine

-Red vs Blue season 1, Rooster Teeth

-Nvidia Omniverse launch video at SIGGRAPH 2021

-Ozymandias, Hugh Hancock

-Clear Skies, Ian Chisholm
