About the Machinima-Expo:

The Machinima Expo is a yearly film festival for machinima created by volunteers who are themselves machinima filmmakers and artists. Machinima (muh-shin-ih-muh) is a form of 3D animation made entirely inside of a real time engine. Now, when we say “engine”, we mean a video-game engine like World of Warcraft, Second Life or Half Life 2. These engines make it possible for users/players to capture their actions inside of the real-time 3D world and then edit them into animated scenes. This is machinima (machine + cinema)
