Will you animate in other games besides Minecraft?

How was Black Plasma Studios formed?
Arbiter created the channel in 2008 to upload Halo montages before he moved onto creating Halo machinima. This involved using the Halo game engine to tell cinematic stories like Rise of the Spartans. In 2015, he recruited other members to the channel to boost productivity.
What happened to Halo machinima?
We wanted to create content that wasn’t restricted to the features of a video game where we had to rely on what the developers added to the game. After feeling dissatisfied with the newer Halo titles, we decided to drop the medium and move onto a more creative platform.
I subscribed for large-scale storytelling, not Minecraft shorts, what happened?
We are currently working on the larger stories with characters, drama, action and adventure. These projects take a long time to produce, even longer now we have to animate everything from scratch. The shorter Minecraft animations work well to gain the necessary experience needed for the larger productions as well as helping to build up the channel.
