Do you like movies made in 3D online digital platforms and video games, known as “machinimas“? If the future of the web is increasingly linked to audiovisual content rather than written texts should some of you have answered “yes” to question. Well: after the launch of new service “HD machinima” (see there) that allows you to view these videos in high resolution directly on the Koinup.com site, community of fans of digital images which is partner of Mondivirtuali.it, the community lead by Pierluigi Casolari has launched a new challenge, even with the support of media partner Just Art: to increase the culture of machinima from thousands of its users, through the project “Desperately Seeking Machinimist” (see there).
Title jokingly refers to a cult film of the 80s, “Desperately Seeking Susan”,with Rosanna Arquette, Aidan Quinn and the rockstar Madonna, but do not want in any way constitute a tribute to the past, however glittering and Hollywood style. On the contrary: those interested in proposing his machinima should not do is join the eponymous group on Koinup.com and wait for review (on the community blog), of what, every week, will result in the opinion of the Koinup team to be the best of the proposed videos to select the absolute five best machinimists among all participants. All Koinup.com and Mondivirtuali.it users are of course welcome to join either trying to grapple with a digital recording, or by leaving your comments, suggestions or requests.
