I'm very proud of our members and moderators. There have been many great machinima posted on this site from creators that cut their virtual teeth, reading our informative blogs and forums.
Thank you once again for making this site so successful.
My regards to all and I hope to see more good things this next 5 years.

You might notice a few changes to the site. One is to affirm our commitment to promoting original content, and another is to expand our machinima beyond the Second Life platform. We still highly support Second Life as an important machinima community, especially with regards to original content. You can use the main forum area to post your links to machinima not permitted to be uploaded into our site because of content restrictions. We welcome seeing your productions, and we will… Continue

If you haven't already noticed, we are now accepting limited advertising and sponsership to offset some of the new NING subscription charges.
You have my word that most of our page real estate will still deal with machinima and the features we have all come to love such as the forums, blogs and media.
I will limit large banners to only 4 total and there will be some opportunities for right side column mini-banners as well.
Thanks for your patience… Continue

Some members have written to me, concerned with the upcoming changes in the Ning platform and what it will mean to our website.
Be rest assured the MAG website will remain intact and we will migrate along with our sister site the "Professional Machinima Artist Guild" onto the new service structure offered by Ning, our web host. This offers the "best" solution so that we do not suffer content loss or other hassles.
In the event that the Ning platform no longer offers hosting… Continue

Just a bit of news. The administrators of The Professional Machinima Artists Guild have decided since the scope of that site is professional quality machinima, the site will embrace ANY machinima made on ANY platform.
So persons that have been experimenting with MAYA, 3DMAX, POSER, MOVESTORM, GARYS MOD and others can now show their professional features.
Happy Machinima Making!

It has come to my attention that members are receiving spam emails. There also were some some blog posts advertising outside services.
This site is dedicated ONLY to machinima related content, ANY OTHER CONTENT without a moderators express permission will result in the suspension of the offending members account.

We are seeing many exciting changes in our development.
In particular, I am pleased with the potential of the 'Guild Sponsored Charities" group and can't wait to see what good we can do for others as this group progresses.
Another new group I hope will become active… Continue

The book is being authored by guild member Sonicity Fitzroy, who in real life is a former chairperson and associate professor at a notable midwestern university with a top ranked media program.

It was brought to my attention that we had new member who was approaching other members asking for friendship and then trying to encourage them to another web site regarding a money making scheme.
These types of transactions are prohibited on this website (see site rules). We are only dedicated to all things regarding the making of machinima. Commercial pursuits outside of this theme are ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN and will result in INSTANT BANNING from the Guild. I have already sanctioned… Continue

Here I am under the gun with member Sonicity Fitzroy who is an Associate Professor at a major University in Illinois, USA. (Can't mention her name or institution because I don't give out members personal details). The book explains the use of Media in Virtual Worlds and I'm sure Soni herself will add more details as her publishing date approaches. I appreciate this opportunity to shed light on the Guilds role in the metaverse and hope we see more… Continue
