―The intro to most of MegaSean45's unscripted videos
Sean Michael Steinman (born September 16, 1993 [age 24]) is an American Machinima and gaming youtuber known by his username MegaSean45, and he created his videos through under the studio name of Shroom Films.
The orginal youtube account was created on January 17, 2008. He created his first video, Scanner-Life Trailer in October 19, 2008, and in the same day he created first episode. MegaSean45 thought of Scanner-Life a long time ago and was gonna be a little bit like the other machinimas Civil Protection and Leet World. The machinima was just a little not-so-popular machinima, but started getting better when the Scanner-Life Movie was released. During the days of Scanner-Life, MegaSean45 wanted to make a first-person shooter machinima, a little bit like the Zombie Horde. Combine Rampage was gonna be a sequel of the show, and was just gonna be random stories of Rebels fighting Combines. Since after Episode Nine, he started to make more of a storyline. Mega is a big fan of the game called Halo, so he made the game more Halo-ish. He created the three Combine Wizards as the leaders of the Overwatch. In Episode Ten, the main protagonist Master Chief came to the series. Although he wasn't much of a protagonist until Chapter 20 of Combine Rampage. Chapter 19 of the series introducted the protagonist's partner in the series: The Arbiter. Combine Rampage became Mega's best hit. Another machinima created by Shroom Films is Doomguy's Mind. Before Doomguy's Mind, it was called Marine's Mind, but then the show was re-created to be more funnier, and a more deeper voice Mega used. The idea of Doomguy's Mind was to be a little bit like the machinima Freeman's Mind, but inside the game Doom 3. Before Combine Rampage became popular, Shroom Films created a Fake Half-Life 2: Episode Three walkthrough. The fake Episode 3 walkthrough was just like Combine Rampage as a first-person shooter machinima. After Combine Ramapge Chapter 42, Mega created a new YouTube page called: Shroom Films Bonus to create some bonus videos of Combine Rampage and Scanner-Life. The page was created on February 5, 2011. Soon Mega wanted to make a little fanfiction of his favorite game: Grand Theft Auto, so he created a blogged series called Grand Theft Auto: ULTRA! started July 6, 2010. Shroom Films is still going on with more videos and yet more is there to be uploaded.
Scanner-Life is MegaSean45's first machinima. The first episode was created October 19, 2008 and the Scanner-Life Movie was created on July 11, 2009.
