Ridley Scott...only on Machinima!  The longtime director of such sci-fi greats as Alien and Blade Runner will now set his sights on smaller fare with a series of web shorts.  Scott, his commercials production company Rsa and Machinima will team up to produce 12 short sci-fi films with the possibility of developing features from them.  While Scott, now 75, is revisiting new visions of his earliest feature successes, he'll stay out of the director's chair for these shorts, sticking to executive producer status only.  Hit the jump for more. It was announced today that Scott, Rsa and Machinima will be developing 12 short sci-fi films that will debut online.  Machinima has been growing its readership with such web-series as Halo: Forward Unto Dawn, Mortal Kombat: Legacy and Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome.  Rsa touts such visionary filmmakers as Kathryn Bigelow, Martin Scorsese, Sam Mendes, Neill Blomkamp, Joe Carnahan and Andrew Dominik. »
