It was truly mindblowing what took place at MachinEVO, the 5-week Second Life workshop for language educators, which was part of the regular and annual pre-conference activities of the TESOL convention called EVO Sessions.
During MachinEVO we set out to learn how to produce videos of language learning conversations in Second Life. These videos are recorded with a screen-capturing software like Fraps or Camtasia and due to the lean production costs provide a great opportunity for language educators to create blended learning material to supply to their learners additional learning material.

The Machinima Archive https://archive.org/details/machinima The Machinima Archive
The Machinima Archive is dedicated to the academic investigation and historical preservation of the emerging art form known as machinima. Machinima is filmmaking within real-time, 3D virtual environments, often appropriated from existing video game engines. High-quality new machinima of all kinds are regularly added to the archive for your enjoyment.
The Machinima Archive is a collaborative effort of the Internet Archive, the How They Got Game research project at Stanford University, the Academy of Machinima Arts and Sciences, and Machinima.com.

How Machinima Works http://entertainment.howstuffworks.com/machinima.htm How Machinima Works
Machinima takes its name from the combination of the words machine and cinema -- technically, the word is misspelled, but that's how it was first written and it has stuck.
Machinima filmmakers are called machinimists or machinimators (the two terms are used interchangeably). Machinima films use virtual environments and actors to tell stories. Most of the time, a video game is used to provide the setting, props, costumes and even actors. Machinima can be as simple as an in-game recorded video of a player racing through a level or as complex as a feature film with plot twists and extensive character development.
