Ethan Vogt’s 9min film is “Tron meets Grand Theft Auto.” He used the www.machinima.com engine in creating the piece. Machinima uses game technology in rendering and animating virtual worlds. Ethan also used a NYU/Volvo partnership contest to get his piece listed on www.allnewV50.com (click on the purple NYU tag on the upper part of the webpage). Beth Coleman who is teaching at MIT this year is developing a machinima piece and she’s enlisting help from MIT students. The first installment will be presented at the conference Media in Transition, May 7, 2005. We think she’s come to the right place.
