Ridley Scott, the director of Blade Runner, and Machinima are partnering on 12 science fiction short films. Scott will not be directing the films, but his production company RSA will be working with Machinima to choose from a potential list of directors. RSA and Machinima are hoping that the short films may lead up to a new sci-fi franchise.
?RSA has always been at the forefront of creating innovative work. With new media transforming the way audiences connect with films and filmmakers, Machinima is a great partner for us as we embark on this new model of delivering original content to fans. It?s a tremendous opportunity for pushing the creative boundaries for both our filmmakers and the audience,? said Scott.
You may remember Scott as being the director of the YouTube project known as “Life In A Day.” That project involved taking content from amateur YouTube video creators and combining it into a long film. Machinima is a popular YouTube channel that features video game trailers and gameplay.
