Style Matters!

This year's Machinima-Expo 6 focused on intense discussions regarding the medium we love for game engine film making known as Machinima (that portmanteau describing cinema done on machine).

There were many great presentations which we urge all to see, plus of course the fabulous films which reflect a depth and breadth of talent within our independent film community, that does indeed make this the medium to watch.

Within this context, Pooky was asked to contribute a piece on Style in Machinima.
