Most Excellent Machinima Music Video – Potlatch – “Plant Her”

by on May.07, 2010, under Virtual Worlds

This is one of the most impressive Music Videos made in Second Life that I have seen. I think what makes this video work so well for me, is in the editing. Which is a art in it self.

This does not mean it is perfect, but it brings us right to the edge of what works well in doing SL machinima. Make sure to watch it in full screen.

Potlatch – “Plant Her” (Music video) from Arbit Delacroix on Vimeo.

Official music video for “Plant Her” by Potlatch from the album “Ravenshadow” on Louipimps Records.Music written and produced by PotlatchSecond Life machinima filmed at Butterdish, China, Pixel Mode and Cloudcroft.

The singing by the avatar is done well, I don’t think the lipsync tech in SL is good enough yet to do this properly. But this is a great effort with a great result.

Two of the scenes that I found particularly interesting, was the camera scene in the white room and the man that drowned the old school newbie. At least that is what I imagine he did, maybe it is a metaphor to getting rid of our inner noob.

Physical Virtuality – The Machinima.

by on Nov.10, 2008, under Virtual Worlds

Chantal Harvey produced a short machinima: Physical Virtuality ‘What’s the weight of an avatar?”. It gives a impression of the inworld experience of the mixed reality event of the same name that happened past Nov 1st.

IĀ volunteeredĀ on the RL side an commented the following earlier on hamlet’s blogs about it:

“A lot of the public was still uncomfortable with virtual worlds and where surprised that people from around the globe would login and stand on a virtual see-saw with them. We had a lot if fun explaining, playing with them and in and introducing people to SL in this manner.

We have talked about how things could be improved, I think more modes of interactivity/communication would improve the experience. The 20 second video delay makes it disjointed experience.”

The whole experience has me thinking about fun SL<->RL interfaces, you could do things with lights, wind, sounds, etc. But what I’m more curious about is what kind of mixed reality contraptions would you like to play with? Share your serious or wacky ideas, and it might end up being developed.
