helen stuckey speaks about the player–producer culture of games, variously described as emergent authorship’ and the ‘ubiquitous creativity of videogames’.
from transgressive play to reverse engineering, games offer their users more freedom for creativity than any other entertainment media. machinima – filmmaking within real-time 3d virtual environments – is a new form of filmmaking that uses computer game technology to ‘shoot’ movies. it is a new art form created by players and unforeseen by game designers.
helen stuckey is the screen events programmer of games at the australian centre for the moving image (acmi) where she curates the games lab, a space dedicated to addressing the significant contribution to screen culture of video and computer games. she initiated and project managed the groundbreaking virtual place acmipark created by australian artists and game developers selectparks. she helps foster a broader international cultural profile for games, participating in many capacities in international gaming, including recently programming the second acmi machinima film festival.
