A casual vox-pops catching the thoughts and interests of the DDM students using Second Life. This short machinima documentary was created by 2nd Year student Steve Searle, as part of the optional pathway in Moving Image.
I thought I'd share it with you...

Play - brings together all the sound sketches (toys) that I've created in Second Life™ World over the last few years. Each an exploration of the Scripting Language and other properties of the Second Life world.
This collection was presented at the People : Place : Prescence conference and exhibition on 2nd April at Foundation for Art and Creative Technology in Liverpool.
The collection can be found here >> SLURL - and will stay up till the End of April '08.
Though most of these works - could be recreated in other software, it is the social aspect of the virtual world, that makes me stick to working in Second Life or similar. Seeing groups of online people experiment and collaborate on producing music with my pieces, is more rewarding than a more solo experience on a flash based website or similar. And I still get goosebumps when I watch a group of international avatars all playing together telepresently, yet seemingly all together in one place and presence.
Play - a way of learning, Play - to be actively engaged, and Play - to perform .
