EduMachinima Fest 2017

Machinima is screencapturing and editing of digital films from video games and virtual worlds. Are your students or maybe you making these? Come join us for screening of the videos and the student and educators awards. Think of it like the Oscars….done EdTech Style with a discussion of all things Machinima from the attendees.

The EduMachinima Fest is a new media Film Festival showcasing games and virtual environment formats combined with cinematic arts to teach, inform, entertain and inspire.

The EduMachinima Fest features both Student and Educator entries in a variety of categories including digital storytelling, tutorials, and narrated gameplay.

Technical achievements such as editing screen capture (machinimatography), sound and special effects, are also recognized. Machinima provides students with an opportunity to express themselves creatively and/or demonstrate content knowledge in sandbox game environments like Minecraft, MMO’s like World of Warcraft, MOBA’s like League of Legends, Dota 2, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm and virtual environments such as Second Life, Kitley and OpenSim.

Machinima can include real-life video and greenscreen, but always includes some form of digital environment. The fest will feature individual and collaborative works as well as channels with series designed to tell a story or instruct. Yes, Student or Educator, we’d love to see your Twitch channel.
