In October half-term 2011, as part of Juice Festival, The Factory run weeklong workshops based on Machinima, which is creating films using computer games such as ‘Second Life’ and ‘Minecraft’. The week was a huge success! There were four groups working under the guidance of Filmmaker Ian Fenton and Shaun who were brilliant. They taught us how to create game sets, use camera angles and storyboard the film as well as how to edit. It was a very intensive week but all the groups did amazingly well as they managed to produce a film in the end. All four films are available to watch below – hope you enjoy them !
It was amazing to see all this imaginative and creative work coming from everyone – the place was bursting with life and ideas so thank you to everyone who came along !
