The 'Trick' is on Lifeskool


Cablevision-owned VOD channel content provider Lifeskool TV is holding a contest to find the machinima of the best in-game video trick.

Machinimas are films that use games and games engines as backdrops, and this contest aims to drive awareness of the emerging art form.

Judges of the "Show Us Your Sickest Trick" contest include "300" director Zack Snyder; Chris Burke, director of the "Halo"-themed talk show "This Spartan Life"; and rocker Tommy Lee. First prize is a trip to New York and $1,000.
