Photo Gallery Showcase
These images, and the one on the previous page are by JuliLux3, one of our Machinima Masters. Now the album doesn’t say much other than “current project” , but if the photos are any indication this is going to be another spectacular visual treat. These photos demonstrate some outstanding cinematography - basically great camera work so that scenes are like awesome photos.
DeathPoke1qa shared some promo pics and a few of the set design that show us how the stage was laid out for filming. Set design is a creative process that is an important part of a well made machinima
Creating good characters are always important, but the details are especially critical when creating large casts of similar people, such as students or a large group of friends, or zombies for that matter. Their looks, clothing, personality all must be considered and as we all know it can take a long time to create each sim to get them just right.

- Pcom1777 not only introduces the characters, but also the voice actors who will play them. Even the voices selected play a role in the character traits too.

Screenshots will give your fans a feel for the machinima you are making. You can create great screenshots of your machinima in a few waysâ€Ś 1. Once you have filmed a scene, have your sim redo the same animations and shoot some photos. 2. Grab screens from the filmed footage 3. Find interesting pics to take of your set designs.

Speaking of SET DESIGN Pcom1777 has created some awesome detailed sets, including a different classroom style for each different subject. Getting all of the little details included may seem tedious, and time consuming and may not seem important, but believe me they are noticed and will make a huge difference in how your machinima feels to the viewers.
