Earlier this week, I posted about machinima, the creation of short movies using 3D game engines as a stage. Creating an effective piece of machinima requires skills in video storytelling, as well as directing (insofar as you can) and filming the action in the game environment.
So in this week’s Friday Fun, why not have a go at some video storytelling?
One of the easiest ways to get started is to use something like the Dr Who Trailermaker, which allows you to cut together various scenes from Doctor Who, as well as adding music and sound effects.
You can also share your creations, so if you do make a trailer, why not post a link back here? ;-)
If you’re not into Dr Who, then why not have a go at a Star Wars movie mashup instead?
If filmmaking is not your thing, and you’d rather just play a game, then how about trying out one of the ‘adventure game’-like interactive stories on the Penguin “We Tell Stories” interactive fiction site?
Have a good weekend :-)
