Josie Fraser :: Blog :: Machinima Festival Europe 07 Awards

October 15, 2007

I was delighted to be invited along to the first Machinima Festival Europe 07 award ceremony last night. The party followed a full day of screenings and a programme which covered Machinima's history, tools and techniques, and legal issues at Leicester's De Montfort University. International luminaries of the machinima community were out in force, including Paul Marino, Friedrich Kirschner, Burnie Burns, Hugh Hancock and Frank Dellario.
