Deviation: a machinima with a message

05/17/2006 —

The short film ‘Deviation’ was shot using an online game engine with the virtual actors and director never having met one another. Macintyre, an online-game character and member of a four-man counter-terrorist squad, attempts to break out of the cycle of futile violence that has been his sole existence. Bron : deviation

Deviation is zogenaamde ‘machinima‘ en is gemaakt met behulp van de populaire game Counterstrike. Zeker even gaan zitten voor de korte film ‘Deviation‘.
Een andere populaire machinima is RedvsBlue, welke het verhaal vertelt van een aantal Halo-personages die het tegen elkaar opnemen. Waar het in RedvsBlue vooral om de humor gaat, is in Deviation duidelijk een boodschap te vinden:

One definition of ‘deviation’ is an expressed belief, within a totalitarian regime, which is not in accordance with official party doctrine for the time and area. Scrape away at the surface of ‘Deviation’ and my hope is that you will see a message that holds relevance for all of us in these dangerous times of countrywide apathy and state-engendered fear.
