Of all the YouTube Partners that are succeeding, perhaps none is thriving and growing quite like Machinima. Machinima is the home to a host of recurring and regular programming, most of which is centered around the world of video games--machinima is a modern word used to describe film works that are created from using graphics engines from video games. As we reported last month, Machinima's YouTube channel is now receiving a billion views a month putting them near the top of the list among all YouTube Partner Channels.
Last month, with videographer assistance from our friends at VideoAgency, I had the pleasure of visiting Machinima's headquarters in Los Angeles for a series of interviews. The following is the first of several videos with Machinma and our aim was to provide you with a view into their offices, company culture, and some of the talented staff. It is a way cool office set up of for one of the hottest video content companies on the planet:
Love the game room--and the idea that they have 8 stations hooked up to both major gaming platforms, with all 8 feeding into a control room where they can grab whatever footage or data they need... man, that's just awesome!
Machinima looks like a place where they know exactly who they are and who they want to be, and everyone in the tour video seems to really enjoy being there. Our special thanks to Rob Jones and the entire Machinima team for pulling back the curtain and giving us a peak behind the scenes!
