Michael Verdi, Talkbot.TV and Machinima

Michael Verdi is one of the creators of FreeVlog. He is also a master creator of Machinima. I could try explaining what Machinima is but I think it would help if you saw an example.

From this is host Aren Mandela doing his rendition of I Miss You:

According to
Machinima (muh-sheen-eh-mah) is filmmaking within a real-time, 3D virtual environment, often using 3D video-game technologies.

In an expanded definition, it is the convergence of filmmaking, animation and game development. Machinima is real-world filmmaking techniques applied within an interactive virtual space where characters and events can be either controlled by humans, scripts or artificial intelligence.
It is one thing to go out into the world and record. It is a totally different experience having to create the world first.
