Contemporary Classical Composer Sabrina Pena Young Official Music Site: Machinima Films Grow Up: Why Machinima Isn’t Just for Gamers.

 

Machinima used to be a realm only for hardcore gamers, but today, filmmakers are taking the video-game-inspired style by storm with new exciting films. 


What is machinima? Most commonly considered video game fan films, machinima today encompasses any type of film or video that uses video-game inspired computer generated virtual environments in their production.

YouTube‘s most popular channel for Machinima Inc., are created within popular video games likeCall of Duty or Grand Theft Auto and essentially are fun fan films often synced to popular music
