thanks for reposting this, exhale
just would like to encourage everyone who is interested somehow in such a game to go on and participate
[i am jury/curator for the third part - vjs vs visualizers - and also wish it gathered and covered big and diverse enough auditory and participants to present modern state of visual motion art and especially the topic of festival]
thanks & possibly see your stuff there

What actaully is the VJ vs visualizers thing? Clips being played and comparing them to automated stuff.
I presume visualizers are the automated stuff from your discriptions. As this is my next of the woods I am interested in knowing more.
Which ones are you using/have an interest in?
I am not aware of many new authors/releases in the last year so I wonder what stuff you are refering too.
(edit: ALso are any of teh articles from the context page available in english eg MAN VS. ROBOT: YOU'VE ALREADY LOST lol sounds like my initial post here)

as for automated stuff, we're interested in everything that can produce visuals stunning enough to stare at for a while ::]
note only that it probably should not be professional vj prog [e.g. no specially premastered clips or postproduction treatment must be involved to produce final visuals - only that app]
surely this fest is not going to become exhibition of previously-totaly-unknown fundamental new apps [don't u think authors would wait for some fest to release them ::]. more probably shortlist will consist of home-made art pieces. though some of such pieces from the previous fest - http://www.macros-center.ru/read_me/abouten.htm - appeared pretty useful
i'll ask sergey about translation of the articles [hope it can be done better than overall translation of the site ::]

Ummh I still do know what sort of stuff you have in mind and examples of previously released stuff/programs. What do you plan to show at the moment. I am curious to see what I may have missed too. :)
Would the visualizations stuff like from here:
Is that the sort of thing you are after.
:) from the section I am involved there is hardly anything coming out anyway so you are unlikely to see any really new stuff.;)
edit - Your english is mostly better than my awful quick typing attempts for the posts in Vjforums. :)

rovastar, i'm out of my mail for the moment so posting my reply here (since it may concern the others too, i hope it's ok with you).
please feel free to mail me too [firstname.lastname@example.org]
> So what vizualizers to you plan to use
any that are submitted to the fest
> If I do understand correctly I can submit loads of works
> and many more from other people I know in this small scene.
if you know some "very special" settings for such programs, please include them too [it would help not to miss there specialities]

"i want to come to russia to participate in your fest and play live,
do you have funds/budget for that?"
machinista is online festival, not a on-stage contest. that means
that the whole process of works collection as well as jury work takes place remotely. "participation" means submission of your works as produced/recorded pieces of media or software to the site of machinista [or by snail mail]; they will be evaluated as become available.
the only live event during this festival will be final award
ceremony/party. best pieces will be demonstrated there; there is also an option that the winner[s] will be invited to that party and play live, but this is yet only an option [it depends on the fest results et cetera].
so - there are no funds just to bring you to russia to play live.
if you rather want to participate in the fest, prepare demo and sibmit it as described on the machinista.ru site.
