On the 22nd November Bloodspell, the first feature length machinima production, will be screened in conjunction with a panel on machinima at the London Metropolitan University Graduate Centre. The evening will start with Hugh Hancock, of Strange Company, introducing the concept of machinima and the film, to be followed by a viewing of Bloodspell. After the viewing a panel will address the issues raised by the film then open the floor for discussion.
We’ve talked about Bloodspell before, as it not only represents an excellent example of a new form of film creation, but also because it is released under a CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. More info on the screening/panel below:
