The Machinima Reader

This chapter describes a production approach that moves toward a faster, cheaper, and more accessible method of creating animated movies, and reduces the time it takes to illustrate a creative idea in the form of 3D animation. The material is approached from the perspective of machinima film creators and meeting their needs by developing new tools to support machinima as an artistic practice. It describes a workflow that changes the production process from a mostly linear progression, from initial idea to finished production, into an iterative approach in which decisions can be quickly evaluated and altered at any point in the process, thanks to an interconnected pipeline of shared assets.

Keywords:   animated films, movie production, 3D animation, filmmaking
