Welcome to the Machinima work group of WikiProject Animation and WikiProject Video games. Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of machinima and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.


The Machinima work group aims to build a comprehensive and detailed guide to machinima on Wikipedia, and to standardize, improve, and maintain machinima-related articles. For the purposes of this definition, machinima-related is intended to be fairly broad.
