Machinima for human rights?

I’m sitting in a hotel room in Menlo Park, California, swimming in a pool of creative content – and you should definitely dip a toe in the water… Rik Panganiban, a good friend of WITNESS, has posted a fascinating list of machinima with a social purpose here:

I view machinima (digital films created using a game engine or virtual world) as a powerful and accessible medium for storytelling and artistic expression. And despite its game-based roots, I think there is ample evidence that machinima can be used to engage people on serious issues and ideas — whether its the upcoming US Presidential election or climate change.
