According to Deadline, Ridley Scott and his company RSA will be teaming with Machinima for producing 12 short sci-fi films.
RSA President Jules Daly stated that, “There is a plethora of great talent here and sometimes they don’t have a platform for great ideas that would work well in shorts.
“It could be an established director wanting to try something new, or a brilliant young director from Sweden who surprises us. This is the future, it’s new territory we believe we must investigate.”
Scott stated that, “RSA has always been at the forefront of creating innovative work. With new media transforming the way audiences connect with films and filmmakers, Machinima is a great partner for us as we embark on this new model of delivering original content to fans.
“It’s a tremendous opportunity for pushing the creative boundaries for both our filmmakers and the audience.”
Scott and Daly will serve as executive producers for all 12 short films, but it will be Machinima that decides who will direct each and what the ultimate goal of each film will be.
