We just launch of our public beta for Instafilms.com. This is “machinima for the masses.” Instafilms allows video game fans to make their own CG animated short films (or shows) with a simple tool set that includes text-to-speech, drag and drop cameras, and choices of sets and characters. Shows get rendered within minutes, and you can post them anywhere.
There are currently three “shows” to choose from: Sony Playstation’s Heavenly Sword, Ubisoft’s Brothers in Arms, and our own original franchise, Menlo Park. We will be adding more game franchises in the coming weeks.
Make your own cartoon.. its a lot of fun! Any comments or feedback, I would love to know what you think!
One of the video game properties we will be featuring on Instafilms.com is Heavenly Sword. Here is a quick test movie I did with the assets. We’ve added in tons of sword-fighting animations, so I will have to make another soon to show that off.
We continue to build out Instafilms.com for a Q1 ’09 release. While most of the site focuses on video game related content, we are launching new and original shows as well. Here is a sneak-peak at one of the new characters and environments for a show we call “Menlo Park.” I wrote this very quickly as a test to see if the new assets are working properly, and also because I am bummed I can’t buy peanunt butter right now due to a selmenella scare.
I made this holiday cartoon for all my friends and family. Enjoy!
