From: C_Dub7 | #008 Yeah, the only way you actually get paid is if you create something original on their site. Anybody can go on Machinima and post a vid.
Machinima directors get paid money for the amount of views they get. They are recruited, you can't just become one.
Anyhoo, every single time somone gets a contract they always say that Machinima don't allow them to disclose how much they get paid.
Personally, I think it's more than most people expect so Machinima don't want regular people to know because otherwise there will be a ton of people trying to get contracts. --- Nickname: Ohmaigawd867 | Courtesy of Dan Harkinz Not changing signature until Dying_Atheist changes his. 2/10/2009
"I remember back in COD4, when 40+ games meant more than getting lucky with an 11 kill streak.
God, MW2 is so easymode."
This. No coincidence that the number of Machinima directors increased tenfold when MW2 came out. I like this game, but it makes everybody pro. --- "I'm black and I rage like a white kid"-unknown poster
Only noobs need 11 KSs for a 40+ game when you have OMA DC toobing. <_<
I wanna see someone popular on you-tube do this, record the first game they did it, and post it, to show how easy it is. I bet xCal would get close to 100 kills. o_o --- "I've come to love you, Calvin. <3" - Tv_is_Crack http://denkirson.xanga.com/715966769/modern-warfare-2/
Very very little if any. SxePhil gets at least a million views per video, which is real advertising power. I'd say he gets a penny/10 videos. --- The Church of Vector: Jesus Kriss our savior. http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f141/MistaSkyline/oax91l.jpg

It was only me, Hutch and xcal that had contracts at the end of COD4. Now, they have at least 50+ MW2 commentators. There's even more that aren't signed because ANYONE can get a good score in this game.
And machinima directors make $2.50 per 1000 views.
