Possibilities for a Machinima?

Ok, for those of you that don't know what a machinima is, it's usually a fan made episodic series that is created using footage from a videogame. Think "Red vs. Blue" for Halo.

Now, you may be thinking that this is a bit premature. The game hasn't even been released yet, sure, but it takes quite a lot of work to make a decent machinima. There were a few attempts to make one for the first game, but, IMO, they didn't really work out too well.

I had the means to record a machinima a couple of months ago, but my laptop died and the cords won't reach from the desktop to my living-room. I'm hoping that I can save up enough for a new laptop by the time C2 arrives to remedy that situation.

In the meantime, would anyone be interested in throwing around a few ideas, and participating in it? I've got a great Michael Ford impression, and I'm a sophomore theatre major in college. I'd really like to collaborate with any of you guys that might be interested. Just a thought...-_0

I usually try to approach these things in such a way that keeps the singleplayer storyline nothing more than background reference material. I haven't even made any characters or attempted to make a storyline for it yet, hence the collaboration process.

I have no wiispeak or mic or whatsoever so I can't actually talk in the machinima videos.

But I would really like to participate in Machinima videos if you need some silent actors ;)

Well, Ive got an idea:

Maybe the cameraman can use the AR-C Eclipse since its alt mode makes it disappear completely from view.

What kind of machinima will it be? Humorous like RvB or serious?
