Founded in 1997 by Hugh Hancock and Gordon McDonald, Strange Company is the world’s oldest ‘Machinima‘ production company.
We have produced award-winning independent films (including the feature-length ‘BloodSpell’) as well as commercial films for the BBC, Electronic Arts and many others, and founded Machinima.com, which became the “Machinima” network, in 2000.
Hugh has been invited to speak about his work all across the world, including at the Game Developers’ Conference, the Annecy International Animation Festival and more.
He and his films have been featured in Wired, Entertainment Weekly, on CNN and the BBC and in the New York Times.
Currently Hugh is working on advanced “performance capture” using world-class motion capture technology, combined with Machinima techniques – and you can follow the latest updates, excitement and misadventure on the Strange Company blog.
