I have to say I’d never heard of "machinina", the mash-up of gaming technology with cinema, until I listened to the 16th October episode of BBC 5 Live’s Pods and Blogs, which explained rather a lot. Not only was this episode of the podcast front-ended with an introduction by my fellow music podcaster Gabor Kovacs from the Electrical Language Podcast, but also featured Andrew Hugill, from De Montford University (which is one of the places I’d visited with my son on an open day) who’d organised the first Machinima Festival Europe 07.

Alsoe nice to see Microsoft (the current Cogle family billpayer) being involved in helping out with a Halo 3 Movie!
