I'd strongly recommend that everyone take the time to visit the Machiniplex and watch Kate and Mike's film, which really pushes the boundary's of what is increasingly being termed "Anymation".

Johnnie your words are too kind. Thank you.
I'd like to add a thought I had years ago when I was attending a class in the history of film at USC. In a less complicated world, the early filmmakers could literally pick up a camera a make a film. Mack Sennett use to chase the firetrucks to be able to put his Keystone Cops into the middle of actual events. To be able to experience film making in a simpler time, like Keaton, Chaplin or DW Griffith. And now I believe that is possible with the rise of Machinima and Anymation.
My biggest thanks to you founders of this new medium.

Something profound and thought-provoking and awesome


Wow. That's just blown my mind - that's exactly why I love machinima, although I've never heard it put into words so succinctly before.

Beautifully put, Michael. We had another burst of that kind of creativity just after world war II when 8/16mm cameras were cheap and new stocks of fast film enabled just about anyone to pick up a camera and make a film. Cassavettes, Brakhage, Jonas Mekas, Maya Deren and many others made films that are remarkable to this day. I suspect like Mack Sennett, they are our fore-fathers and fore-mothers.

i've had SL installed for awhile although i don't really go there very often just to wander around. however, i do appreciate it for doing events. the idea of tons of people from all over logging in to attend some sort of specific activity, like a film premiere or a concert is just amazing, and to me, an excellent use of such an environment.

and huge congrats re Voices!

It's this coming Sunday, April 27th at 12pm Pacific/ 8pm GM


I'm always happy to come on SL events, but is the premiere open or will there be...um...some sort of entrance fee?

Just wondering.

The Machiniplex Premiere events are always free and open to anyone who can attend. The Second Life software is free to download and use. If you want to participate in the voice chat you'll need a headphone/mic combo which costs about $30 for a decent one. But many people attend without a mic and participate via the text chat which goes on simultaneously.

Hope you can make "Wizard of OS" this coming Sunday. Tom Jantol is a wonderful filmmaker and his live appearance will be quite..um...unique (if you know Tom)

cheers!
