Machinima.com is a gaming and media streaming website, that aims to be a hub for machinima, the art of creating animated videos in real-time virtual 3-D environments. The site features machinima-related articles, and news. Machinima productions can be submitted for possible redistribution after staff review. Founded in January 2000 by Hugh Hancock of Strange Company, the site helped to bring attention to machinima and to encourage productions based on game engines other than those of id Software's first-person shooter computer game series Quake. The site currently operates under the name Machinima, Inc. According to the Machinima.com home page, the site hosts thousands of machinima videos. Videos are organized by channels, which group the films by game engine, and by series, for episodic works. The site contains articles, interviews with people involved in machinima, and tutorials on the creation of machinima.
