Trailer for The Bourne Ultimatum made for the Machinima.com “Bourne Ultimatum Trailer Contest”. We were given the audio from the official trailer and some graphics (opening logo, text) and were told to fill in the visuals with machinima footage.
Officer Dan is back. This time the counter-terrorist machinima guru teaches you to distinguish between machinima films and frag videos.
In this episode (filmed in the style of the Mac vs. PC commercials) Officer Dan takes on the role of “Machinima” as he faces off against his nemesis Joey, in the role of “Frag Video”.
The Extended Cut features a longer opening scene.
On a windy night on the planet Tatooine, a tusken elder tells an ancient tale about the not-so-bright young warrior Foot-in-Mouth, who was sent into the desert as part of his passage into manhood. Harken to his story and take heed.
In the prequel to Machinima! With Officer Dan, the titular machinima guru and hapless counter-terrorist hits the streets to determine the extent of the world’s knowledge of machinima, which, to his horror, does not amount to much.
Machinima! With Officer Dan was originally conceived (and ultimately presented) as the opening of a PowerPoint presentation about machinima to the Tribeca Film Festival. It is a basic introduction to the new artform and the first episode in a series of quasi-educational videos about machinima. Counter-terrorist Officer Dan gives a virtual presentation about machinima, discussing box office vs. video game revenues, the origins of the word “machinima”, early history of machinima, and other introductory information.
