Machinima’s is something I really enjoy watching and making which some of you might know if you ever seen my Youtube channel. It’s becoming more and more popular, with some games even including video recording capabilities and tools for making videos.

For the people that I already lost about what machinima is, it’s basically movies that are made with 3D engines, usually games, and the term came from machine + cinema. If you want to read in detail about it, check out Wikipedia here:

There is a lot of machinima’s out there. From romance to action, music videos to documentaries, games like Halo to World of Warcraft, Flight Simulator to Second Life, you can find something for your taste.

Easiest way to find machinima’s is to head over to a video site like Youtube and just do a search for Machinima or head over to sites like Koinup that is dedicated to machinima’s.

Below are some of my favourites that I have seen over the years. I have a lot more that I really enjoy, but this list is going to get very, very long if I post all of them.  Some of these were made years ago, so do not expect HD quality with some of them.

Kendrick's Story - Max Damage Studios [Guild Wars - Comedy]
One of the first machinima’s I have seen, this one has stuck with me from the start.

 The Letter Home - Jaggyroad Films [The Elder Scrolls - Adventure]
A movie created by Valkyrie321, it inspired me even more to get into Machinima’s more seriously.

World of Warcraft: Here Without You – Dimoroc [World of Warcraft - Romance]
A well done movie with a great story, this is proof that effects and detailed editing is NOT needed to make an amazing movie.

Elyonim: An FSX Story - Lotus Films [Flight Simulator X - Romance]
With an amazing story, this was an unexpected movie for Flight Simulator. It’s a kind of love story, and really worth checking out.

From Yesterday – Jaydee [Sims 2 - Action]
An excellent movie made in Sims 2 with the song From Yesterday - 30 Second to Mars.

Breaking - X-Cross [World of Warcraft – Music Video]
Actually a mix of WoW and Garry's mod, this movie will show you what can really be done with excellent effects and editing in machinima’s.

Man vs. Second Life - Sean Krueger [Second Life - Comedy]
Very funny and well done machinima made in Second Life. This one will leave you laughing for some time. Be sure to check out Man vs. Second Life 2 as well!

The Craft of War: Blind - Percula [World of Warcraft - Action]
Full of action with custom animation, amazing editing and well thought out story, this is a must see for all. You won’t regret it.

Red vs. Blue - Rooster Teeth [Halo - Comedy]
One of the most well known series, it is filled with humour and crazy random events.

Dragon Age: Warden's Fall - Riot Films [Dragon Age: Origins - Action]
Good story and production, this is worth watching, especially if you are a fan of Dragon Age.

There is a lot more machinima’s out there, but maybe in the near future I will post a part 2 to this to prevent this current list from getting to long. Hope you enjoy these video's and feel free to comment below with your favorite machinima!

Skyrim Official Trailer

Yes, its released! With footage of scenery, gameplay, story and a lot more, it shows the game that we will be dreaming about for a long time! But don't take my word for it, check it out yourself below!

Respect to the Bethesda team and anyone that is working on the game and made this amazing trailer. You have released something amazing today!

Domain Name Change and Facebook Rant

Sadly won't be reachable anymore. Due to the fact that facebook seem to hate free domain/subdomain names and some other reasons, I decided to change it to the blogspot name

[Rant] Maybe its just me, but its really unprofessional that a website like Facebook to not review the websites they block, or even worse, block all domain extensions. As far as I can see it, was blocked because the domain extensions of has been used by people for evil purposes. Totally different websites, but because of that, Facebook seem to have decided to block ALL domains, and whats worse, it sounds like that they are blocking .tk sites aswell.

So why do I think all sites is being blocked? Because could not have been blocked for abusive content or spam. If you look through the post, does anything look like abusive content to you? I have filed a ticket about, but since that won't be reachable anymore, I doubt that I will receive a reply.[/Rant]

I apologize for the inconvenience and for people that have bookmarked the site. For now until I find a better alternative (like buying a domain name), you can find this blog at this address

Countdown to Skyrim

If you do not know yet, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is being released on 11.11.11. This marks the fifth game in the series (excluding Battlespire, Redguard and the mobile games) and will take place in the province of Skyrim, hence the name.

Bethesda has released a new wallpaper and with it, a countdown timer that display the time left before the first in-game footage is shown by the game. At the moment of posting this, its just under two and half hours, so make sure to keep your eye on the website! As soon as that timer reach 0, prepare to run like nuts over to

Also, for really great website for checking out info about The Elder Scrolls series, head over to UESPWiki. Its a great source for all kinds of information on the series including lore, walkthrough, news etc.

April Script Frenzy!

We all have a stage-play, TV show or movie we enjoy, but where does it all start? Well we all know (hopefully) that the story first need to be created and written. Okay true... some movies really forgot that part, maybe that's why they never reach the top, but for the this-is-my-favorite-movie-for-eternity type of movies, the story makes the biggest impact.

So what does this have to do with Script Frenzy? This is a donation-funded nonprofit event to write a script of screenplay, TV show, graphic novel, stage-play, short film, etc. of 100 pages in the month of April. There is no fee to participate and when you reach 100 pages, you will be awarded a Script Frenzy Winners Certificate and a web icon!

Obviously there is a few little things to check out before you dive in and write a 40 hour long movie (O.O). Formatting is really important when writing a screenplay because it is a method of letting anyone be able to read it and imagine it as if it is playing in front of them. Formatting is like learning to count before doing rocket science mathematics, or learning to draw circles before drawing the Mona Lisa V2. But do not fear! Its not really that hard to learn.

Im hoping to take part myself and try my luck with writing a screenplay. It will be good experience and with nothing to loose, maybe it will even improve future machinima's I make! So head over to SCRIPT FRENZY, sign up, check out the writers resources and have some fun this April. Hope to see you there!

PS: You can now find a countdown timer on the side of my blog for the time left until Script Frenzy!

Turn off the lights!

YouTube is a great site for sharing and watching any kind of videos but something that has never been changed is the extreme white background of videos. When watching a dark video it can really be hard to see what is going on, especially if you can't maximize the video because of quality.

So here is the solution to the problem. Turn of the lights!

Turn off the lights!

This extension by Stefan vd darkens everything around the video, only showing the video, making it a lot easier to watch videos.YouTube is only an example as well since it has the white background. This extension will also work at Vimeo and other flash player video sites.

And don't worry about your browser not being supported, this extension works for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Windows Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera!

The extension is in English.
The website is in Dutch with a translator tool for all that don't understand Dutch.

A Game With Amazing Story?

Now and then a game comes along that just hook you to the story. A story that you will remember for years to come, that had just that little bit of detail to get you connected.

In the past I have seen a few of these, one of them being Final Fantasy 7
I will always remember that game, the characters, the story, and the events.

Recently, Mass Effect has done the same, with a story that really get you hooked and most likely Mass Effect 3 will continue this epic storyline.

But something else has risen again, and taking from Cinematic Trailer, this looks like something that will have one of those stories that stays with you.
Yes, I am talking about Deus Ex: Human Revolution. With the release of Deus Ex in 2000, it has grown as a favourite among many, and Human Revolution seem to want to increase that number by far.

Let us hope the story is as good as it looks and a new game of memories is soon born.

If you haven't seen the Cinematic Trailer, here is your chance.

Conviction Trailer

Here it is! My first attempt at making a game trailer. Like stated in my previous post, I decided to try something different, so hope you all like it and feel free to comment on what you think!

New movie with a different direction... Coming Soon!

Within the next few hours ill upload my newest movie, but this time I tried something different, which also mean you can't really call it a movie.

I always like to make movies of games that I enjoy playing, or just finished and thought it was pretty cool. The only problem is, not all games are open to such filming. For example, you might not be able to have free use of the camera or initiate specific scenes at your command.

So I decided to make a trailer. Detailed use of camera is not that needed and it is more time spend on the post-production. So I can film scenes of game play and cut scenes, and then spend time editing it till I feel it looks how I want it to look.

So watch this space to see my first attempt at a game trailer.

Background and Logo

Well as most might have noticed by now, the blog has a new background and logo designed by myself ^^. First time that I did the reflect effect, and I'm pretty satisfied with it. The logo has more a rock and hard look to it.

So what do you think of it? Feel free to comment to this post or vote on the poll on the right side of your screen :D
