Here’s an interesting one for those all inclusive definers of videoblogging, which we don’t necessarily agree with here at kashum.com. Is machinima videoblogging?
What’s the difference between Frank and Dale, or even Red vs. Blue for that matter, and other fictional video series’ on the web? Ask a Ninja, the ever awesome Chasing Windmills and others, are arguably the same, except that they have real actors instead of computer generated ones.
So what then of series’ such as Michael Verdi‘s When We Were Robots? Some are claiming that this is videoblogging, and by the distorted definition giving on wikipedia, it is. Thus most likely they’d also consider Frank and Dale as videoblogging.
Machinima is about as far away from videoblogging as CNN’s newscast or RocketBoom. Video is video. Let’s just call it that and be done with it yeah?
