Very pleased to announce that the 5th Annual New Media Film Festival which takes place on June 10 & 11th in Los Angeles will be screening four machinima films. Two films will be screened as apart of the “Machinima” segment of New Media Film Festival programming on Wednesday, June 11th at approximately 9:30AM (Pacific Time). The two films screening are:
- –UNPLUGGED by Brent Jentzsch, USA 5:45 “A boy breaking free from a meaningless and dreary life. Shot real-time in the Unity Game Engine“
- –The Drax Files, Ep. 2: Jo Yardley by Draxtor Despres. USA 5.00. “…cutting between Second Life and Real Life, Ep. 2: Jo Yardley focuses on the 1920’s Berlin Project in Second Life and the driving force behind it: Jo Yardley”
Two more machinima will screen continuously at the New Media Film Festival as part of the “Art on Wall Project“. The two films are:
- –NOISES by by Julia Deak. Hungary 14:19 (World Premiere). “The strengthening of neo-Nazis can be seen all over the world, this is happening in my country, Hungary. The artist in his own way can fight against this trend. This is a topical film in many senses. It’s now 70 years since (millions of) people from all over Europe were forced into death camps. And, 70 years after that atrocity, Neonazis are openly flaunting their views on the streets, and even, taking advantage of the tolerance of democracy/ in the name of free speech / exploiting the tolerance of the democratic state, in the Parliament building itself. Shot on Canon 60D & Machinima.”>
- –Cloud by Hypatia Pickens. USA 18:00. “A well known demon, has stolen a woman’s reflection. An expose to different and intensely personal trials in human relationships and ways to surmount them.”
Congratulations to the creators of the films selected!
