An RL copy of the book 'Machinima: The Art & Practice of Virtual Filmmaking' by Sonicity Fitzroy (Dr Phylis Johnson) and Lowe Runo (Donald Petit) was flown in to UWA from the United States this week.
Brilliantly put together, this book, by McFarland Publishing features a veritable who's who in the world of machinima. Sonicity described the contributors in her recent blog post as follows:
"A special section of interviews featured Al Peretz, “Decorgal” Judy Lee, Iono Allen, Kate Fosk, Michael Gray, Rysan Fall and Wiz Nordberg. End of chapter comments were provided by Chantal Harvey, Pooky Amsterdam, Larkworthy Antfarm, 1angelzares Writer, Toxic Menges, Jonathan Pluskota, and Jay Jay Jegathesan. Two invited chapters were presented by copyright expert Todd Herreman and Dr. Bryan Carter, owner of Virtual Harlem in Second Life. Phaylen Fairchild gave some closing thoughts. Skylar Smythe’s The White Pigeon was featured as a storyboard example."
UWA's Jay Jay Jegathesan was invited to contribute on how machinima cemented partnerships and collaboration. A small section below. Click on the McFarland link above to get a copy of the book itself:
