‘Alien’ Director Scott Produces Sci-Fi Short Films for Machinima

March 12 (Bloomberg) -- Ridley Scott, the director of movies including “Alien” and “Gladiator,” will produce 12 short films for the website Machinima Inc.

Scott is the latest A-list talent to move into online video production, joining Tom Hanks, who produced a science-fiction series last year for Yahoo.com, and Jerry Seinfeld, who starred in webisodes on Sony Corp.’s Crackle.com.

Machinima, which offers videos online for a young male audience, is the No. 1 entertainment channel on Google Inc.’s YouTube site, serving over 2.6 billion video views per month, the company said yesterday in a statement.

Los Angeles-based Machinima has been financed by MK Capital and Redpoint Ventures, according to the statement.
