Welcome! This is the research blog for MachinimaBits festival. On this blog I put all the interesting sources and works I found during the creation of the lineup of the festival.

Unfortunately the second festival (2009 issue) was cancelled because the venue decided (without consultation) to calculate a (quite high) entrance fee, which we only found out about on the website. We (the curators + artists) make nothing and want to keep this a free festival.
I decided to not follow through and keep the research for a later time

Nothing compares to you!

Half-Life 2's FacePoser has clearly opened up some interesting possibilities for machinima, ranging from facial expression to lip synching. Here, Dxvid puts these capabilities to the text in a music video of "Nothing Compares to You" performed by Sinead O'Connor/Mossman.

"This is the song 'Nothing Compares to You' performed by Mossman from Half-Life 2.

"This machinima movie was made in February 2006 and features the song "Nothing Compares to You". It was filmed using FacePoser, Half Life 2, Fraps and Vegas. If you would like to see my other machinima movies please go to -
Please also notice the disco light effect.
