After a lengthy wait “the machine” – a film shot and edited at the Black Bag Media Collective studio in St. John’s – premiered last week at the 2nd annual TrixXxieFest. There was a lovely crowd in attendance including many members of the cast and crew. The film opened this year’s TrixXxieFest and was followed by a reception. Before the film is made available online it will enjoy a little trip around the world via the film festival circuit – stay tuned to theblackbags.com for news of upcoming screenings.
Set in a dystopian future St. John’s “the machine” is a ‘cyberpunk fairytale’ starring Melanie Caines and Liz Solo. “the machine” mixes up HD animation with machinima – shot on our group of online grids known as The Odyssey Simulators.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
