Spike TV (a division of MTV Networks) will be airing animation created using ILL Clan Inc.s proprietary 3D animation technique called machinima. By modifying off-the-shelf computer game technology, the New York animation studio produces machinima in a fraction of the time it would take using typical computer animation techniques.
The Academy of Machinima Arts and Sciences has announced the nominations for the 2003 Machinima Awards, which showcases the best in films created in a realtime virtual 3D environment, known as 3D game engines. The winners will be announced at a ceremony on October 25, 2003 at the American Museum of the Moving Image in New York as part of the Machinima Film Festival.
