I Wanna Be a Machinima Star


“I Wanna be a Machinima Star”

We are doing a parody of a parody.
Based on the Tech Star video we are making “I Wanna Be a Machinima Star”

There are four different ways of participating if you are interested:

1) Send a 30 second video clip of your avatar or a group of avatars singing ( lips moving) to abacuscapalini@gmail.com or if you have dropbox account then share folder with abacuscapalini@gmail.com

2) Help us crowdsource rewriting of  the lyrics at http://bit.ly/machinimastar, or rewrite your own version.

3) Do the Machinima MOOC with us as we learn more about Machinima and produce one or more versions of this video

4) Help us do the outreach that will (hopefully) propel this video viral at ISTE 2012 conference and beyond.
