Overview: At the 11th annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival (2010), eight Indigenous youth had the opportunity to collaboratively produce short films using machinima (“machine”+”cinema”), a technique of movie making in online virtual environments where characters and locations can be produced and recorded. With the assistance of Skawennati, Jason Edward Lewis and Nancy Townsend of Aboriginal Territories in Cyberspace (AbTeC), and the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT), the youth created three short reenactments of their favourite film or video clips using the “Second Life” virtual environment.
