We are very pleased to announce that Short Fuze has engaged Strange Company, the world's leading machinima company, to create tutorials and other user documentation for Moviestorm.

Hugh Hancock and Johnnie Ingram, the "godfathers of machinima", are currently writing Machinima For Dummies, and between them have more experience with different machinima engines than anyone else on the planet. We are all very excited to be working with these pioneers of the art.

This is great! It's almost full circle for me since many years ago I got interested in machinima through a news documentary Hugh was on. Moviestorm is becoming the place to be.

Woohoo... go Strange Guys.

Now.. if only Moviestorm hadn't crashed three times during their live demonstration at a Dundee university on friday!

Great presentation, btw, guys.

Matt, I wish you could have seen Johnnie standing in front of a cinema screen acting out what Moviestorm WOULD have been doing if it hadn't crashed.

It was... priceless. (and fairly accurate too... lol)

Here's to the upcoming more stable platform... :thumbup:

he he he - the curse of beta software strikes at every demo (even Bill Gates and Mr Jobs have very publically suffered from this - and they did not have Johnnie's acting ability to cover over the damage!)

Its a heck of a lot more sensible and stable now :-)
