"Machinima is a marginal presence on the Web but one which I would suggest highlights the contested nature of the internet ... between existing and emerging media forms, between consumers and producers, between marginal and dominant producers, and between network models that stress either active and democratic user participation or commercial control."[cit]

The Academy of Machinima Arts and Sciences (AMAS) defines machinima as "the convergence of filmmaking, animation and game development. Machinima is real-world filmmaking techniques applied within an interactive virtual space where characters and events can be either controlled by humans, scripts or artificial intelligence."[cit]

Machinima is entertainment (art?) made with user-captured tools. "It may be the most unlikely form of indie filmmaking yet—and one of the most weirdly democratic."[cit]
