My buddy Ill Robinson (Paul Marino), head of the Academy of Machinima Arts and Sciences, has just put up a super-sweet logo for the 2007 Machinima Festival. The Machinima Fest, for those that don’t know, is the principal gathering point for machinimators (digital filmmakers who use 3D computer graphics engines) from around the world. Every year, the focus is on the "Mackies" or the industry equivalent of the "Oscars." But there are a ton of other great side events that occur at the fest, from workshops on intellectual property to improv machinima jams.
Last year I helped engineer a Second Life component to the fest, which was a ton of fun. Is there any interest in doing a similar effort this year?
