I stumbled across this machinima, which compiles many of AM Radio’s great builds…true works of art into themselves. Thought you’d like to see, too.
This is a bit of an oldie but a goodie. I’ve been thinking about machinima recently and how much I’d like to put one together. This probably comes from the fact that I’ve had quite a bit of driving for RL work and, listening to the radio, my mind drifts into mental storyboards for the songs that I’m listening to at the moment.
When thinking about the type of machinima to make, I’ve noticed that most are either REALLY well done but somewhat moody, or they’re light and upbeat while looking a little – um – simplistic. One machinima came to mind, however, that split the difference in that it’s light and upbeat while still reasonably complex, Lainy Voom’s “Avatar”. So, as it’s on my mind, I thought it would be fun to share my appreciation for Lainy’s considerable talents.
Here’s “Avatar”. Enjoy – and make sure you maximize the image to full screen to take it all in…it flies by quite fast!
(Hat tip to Corcosman Voom – no relation – for helping me find this piece. Hadn’t thought to look on Vimeo!)
Rummaging through my old machinima footage, I saw that I recorded Madcow Cosmos’ incredible Christmas tree at Oyster Bay (links here and here). A little video editing later, and we have my Christmas gift to you! It’s not the greatest footage ever shot, but hopefully it brings back warm memories.
Note the Viggy “Christmas card” on the dock of Oyster Bay at the end of the piece…what a monstrosity! No wonder this year’s piece was so tame.
Happy holidays, everyone!
I took advantage of a day off of work (danged sinus infection) to slowly work through a challenge that I’d always wanted to address – that being how to make swirling, bright shining lights. I think I got there and made a machinima to celebrate. Enjoy!
