Who are Machinima?
Machinima.com is an online entertainment network that show a range of trailers, gameplay montages and original series created in video games.
I have an involvement with Machinima.com which I go into further details on this page.
As of 14/10/2011 my YouTube channels 'blobstudios' and 'blobstudiosALT' are part of the Machinima Network. What does this mean?
The Machinima Network is a collection of many YouTube channels who all create high quality videos. These channels are able to enable advertisements on their videos in return for a share in the revenue. It is very similar to the YouTube Partnership Program except they are being paid my Machinima rather than AdSense.
The benefit of being part of the Machinima Network is the opportunity of promotion through Machinima's own channel.
To the average YouTube user my channel will look exactly the same as it did when I was a YouTube Partner.
As of 23/10/2009 I have been a part of the Machinima Director's Program. This allows me to create videos for them but instead of them being uploaded on my own channel, they get uploaded to Machinima's YouTube channel.
This would mean my brickfilms could be seen by a much larger audience in turn promoting my own channel. Please note, I would not be making videos for Machinima instead of my own channel. I would be making videos for Machinima in addition to my own channel.
Although I joined in 2009 I have not made any videos for their channel yet). This was due to a lack of time and motivation throughout 2010 and early 2011, even my own channel barely had any videos uploaded. From early 2012 I hope to start making videos for Machinima but I will make sure they are easily accessible to watch from my own channel.
