Hi everyone !! 

My name is Kyle or Flx Pictures (he/him)!

I entered the machinima community as a smol little gay bean in 2009 right after The Sims 3 dropped. I then produced series such as "Seeking Harmony" & an adaption of "Glee" (shivers at the memory lol). I've taken breaks as I grew up, gone to school, etc. but my love and involvement in this community has yet to be challenged :') 

Currently I'm working on launching my personal streaming website with two Sims 2 voice over projects for 2022! I'm picking up my musical/comedy series "Hiding Holiday" right where I left it in 2020, and a queer superhero series "Flatbush 54" that's currently having an open casting call until the end of January!

I think the machinima community includes some of the most (if not just THE most) talented sims content creators. A conversation a month ago with five other directors about an all-inclusive/non-competitive event for just our small but mighty community has turned into something SO exciting. There's opportunities to get involved in both big and small ways so please please stick around, you won't want to miss any of it!

I'm Bri aka SimsBerrry (she/her)!

I've been in the community since 2014. and throughout the years I have tried a lot of different things: I'm a voice actress, Sims 4 machinima director, and I've also made a channel where I share my animations. You can hear me in series like "Ward University", "The Rivers", "Loaded Gun"...

Over the years I've made a lot of different projects, ranging from comedy series (Take a Shot), to fantasy movies (The Forbidden Tale), but my current one (which is also the longest) is a post-apocalyptic/sci-fi Sims 4 series "The Kenopsia Effect". I love being a machinima director and having the opportunity to bring my stories to life and share them with the world.

I've always loved being active in the community, so I thought SMAC would be a great opportunity to bring everyone together and to celebrate out creations. To include all the things we find fun in other events and make something that everyone can enjoy. 

Hope you stick around <333

Salutations all! 

I'm Luana aka TheWhiteDeer (she/her) and I am a member of the SMAC team!

I have been in the community since 2009 and through my 12 years, I have tried many...MANY different projects (as some of you may know :P) such as "The Marked Ones", "Close Up", and an adaption of a best selling novel "Nightshade". 

Currently, I am a Sims 2 Director and occasional voice actress. You can hear my voice in  projects such as "The Rivers", "W.I.T.C.H", and future projects like "Recollection" and "Poseidon". My projects include the upcoming series "Molynthei" which will debut in 2022 and a series continuation for the short film "The Wolf Chronicles". 

The Sims community has always been a part of me since the tender age of 12 and the idea of SMAC has resonated with me strongly. I know that SMAC is a step in the right direction for us to come together and appreciate all the talented simmers we have! I am very excited for the future of SMAC, 

Excited to see you all in 2022!!

Hey there!! 

I'm Aadi aka Mista, formerly known as Awesomista (she/her) and I am a member of the SMAC team! 

Although I'm relatively new to the community (I started posting videos in 2016), I've been lurking around for quite a while now, commenting on videos, making little music videos in Sims 3, etc :)

Right now, I'm a sims director who's made (and canceled) tons of projects, which we will not talk about ;) The current project I'm working on is "Recollection", a dark fantasy Sims 4 series which is debuting very soon! I also voice act here and there, I currently have a role as a character in "Hiding Holiday" !

I'm so ecstatic to work with these talented creators on SMAC! I really think it'll be a great way to bring the community together. It'll be nice to have a positive and inclusive event for everyone to partake in. 

Stay tuned! For more about me, please check out:

Hey there, Ves here (he/him)

You might know me from my YouTube channel Vesion, where I post my projects (most recent one being my mystery drama mini-series "Dirty Little Secrets".) 

I also make music on the side (@vescores) while developing an animated high fantasy series called:

"A Tale of Stars and Shadows" (@atosasofficial)

 I like to keep myself busy, as you might have gathered. 

I've wanted to make something for the Sims community for a long while but never got the guts to start it on my own. Fortunately, this group of lovely people invited me to become part of the team and we came up with this awesome project!

There's loads more to come, so stay tuned for that.

Hey folks!! <3

My name is Dana aka Latibule (she/her) and I am a member of the SMAC team!

I have been a sims 2 director for over a decade, but only released my first voice over series, "The Rivers" (which is currently in its second season), as well as "The Foundlings", a sims 2 fantasy VO series set to premiere in 2022.

In all my years being a part of this wonderful community, I have been very passionate about making sure that creators of all sims games feel included and seen. Which is why I was more than honored to join SMAC. I believe this is the initiative we need to truly bring the entire community together. 

I hope you'll join us in making that happen!

Hi, I am PenyLn (she/her).

 

You can call me Peny or Penny for short and I am a Sims 4 Machinima Director. I have been in the sims community on and off for the last 14 years. Some of you might know my other projects First Kiss or MILF.

 

Currently I am working on a series called Great Heights that follows 6 friends on their journey of adulthood. I am in the process of another project that should be coming out in the end of the year or early next.

 

The Sims has been a game that has been close to my heart. I have been playing since 2000 when the first Sims game was released and have been hooked ever since. Once Sims 2 rolled around I discovered machinima and have been hooked on Sims Machinima ever since. It's been such an honor to work with everyone on this team. I am really looking forward to the first ever Sims conventions were many of us can come together!

 

I will see you there!
