MACHINIMA VERNACULAR

Riccardo Retez



 

What is the relationship between cinema, television and video games? In Machinima vernacular, Riccardo Retez examines the Rockstar Editor, the video editing software integrated into Grand Theft Auto V (2013), focusing on fan productions.


The author describes the dynamics of production, consumption and distribution of machinima within an increasingly complex media ecosystem. The analysis, enhanced by six case studies, attests that video game users are not passive consumers of audiovisual texts, but active subjects capable of understanding and manipulating the variable meanings encoded in these texts, proposing sophisticated remakes.
