Video making is the act of creating videos on a variety of topics, such as the internet forums and video games, for various reasons, mostly for entertainment and fame. In ROBLOX, film making (also known as machinimas) is popular.

Overview

ROBLOX film makers have been around since 2007, when JJ5x5 created the "Roblox Gone Crazy" series of videos. These shorts utilized the physical properties of ROBLOX with overlapping sound effects to create a comedic effect in a series of sketches and recurring gags. Other users such as XiaoXiaoMan and Fleskhjerta soon followed in his footsteps and gained vast popularity across the ROBLOX community. As a result, the ROBLOX moderators devoted an entire forum, ROBLOXiwood, to the practice. In this new forum, the "Studio System," or collective series of groups working together to produce films, was formed with the creation of ZZR Studios by Ultrazz in 2009. Since then, this forum has been reset two times: In 2013, it was merged into the I Made That Forum, a combination made with the Look What I Made Forum, a forum for builders. This change was seen negatively by both communities, as their posts were crowding each other's respective threads. After this reception was taken up with the moderators, they decided to change it the following year into the Video Creations with ROBLOX Forum, which is the current home of ROBLOX videos.

The ROBLOX video community is divided into four main sections:

The ROBLOX Film Wiki

Spawning directly from the end of the ROBLOXiwood Forum, this community of filmmakers follows the Studio System. Shortly before the official end of the forum, super penguin 55, a frequent member of the community, created an information database for the members of the community deemed important enough to the history of the Studio System.

Film Standards

The Wiki includes standards for the films included, which include:

  • ROBLOX Record is not a suitable recording device. Only videos that use another recording device will be considered for eligibility. However, if a production's quality does not meet the standards of the Wiki's admins, it may be removed from the database unless historically significant.
  • If your production is between 3 and 15 minutes in length, it qualifies as a Short. If this Short receives at least one sequel, it becomes a Series. If it exceeds 15 minutes, it becomes a Film.
    • Series must complete at least one season to qualify as a completed production. This rule assists in the induction process (see below).
  • Productions with three reviews or more will receive an average score, which will be used to rank it on a list of the best and worst films in the database, according to the critics' scores.
  • In order for your film to have a page on the database, it must be uploaded to YouTube. If it is still being made, you can have one upcoming film recorded without having a page for yourself on the Wiki. If you do have a page on the Wiki, you are allowed to make up to three pages for upcoming films.
  • All films are rated based on content and categorized by the recommended age range at which they should be watched.

Induction Qualifications

The Wiki runs on a basis of qualifications you need to have before you can earn a page:

  • To be credited officially as a Director, Writer, Producer, etc. or to have your Film Company qualify, you must have helped to make three completed productions.
  • To be credited officially as an Actor, one must star in three completed productions.

Even though these rules are in place, people like Fleskhjerta are included on the Wiki due to their contributions to the industry.

Many video making players in ROBLOX play in certain places just to create videos, although many of the videos made by said videomakers end up becoming a failure. However, despite the failures, some videomakers in Roblox have managed to create good quality videos, such as XiaoXiaoMan, with "Roblox Random Insanity", JJ5X5 with "Roblox Gone Crazy", John Bausal with "Slender Hunters" and Dayren, with "Elder Trolls of Robloxia."

A community under the name of "ROBLOXiwood" formed in honor of the thread of the same name where users would go to promote and cast for small YouTube videos was spawned from the idea. Eventually, large companies formed. The whole community then grew and reached its full potential in 2013, near the time of the original thread's closing. However, the community has died down and has become "unprofessional" in the eyes of some of its oldest members, some even abandoning the Wikia made for the community. Productions such as Spidey Rule's "Builderman", Ternous"s Planetary Wars and Blab Void and SharpTH "RoWar: Reboot" have been involved in the community.

Just recently, users Blab Void and SharpTH have reached an astounding feat. They have been working on a project named "RoWar: Reboot", which has been featured in the ROBLOX spotlight! Read about it in the blog, here. They both see it as the first "true roblox machinima" as it goes beyond the scope and goals of any prior video made with ROBLOX. Their project was cancelled after production was assumed by Darwin12, who stated that the project had not made any progress due to personal problems with the production leaders. Darwin12 officially announced RoWar: Reboot was cancelled on August 17, 2015, attributing a lack of content interest. Darwin, whom was also an active member of StudioARE at the time stated that there was a potential future for RoWar on his end. In February 2016, Darwin departed StudioARE. He commented that he left due to lack of creative freedoms, and that he would keep RoWar in mind for future off-ROBLOX projects.

  • Using a good editor. (Most use Vegas, which is not free)
  • If possible, promote the video with a promo or a trailer to increase future viewers.
