posted message: Thursday night is Show and Tell. Time to show off what you have created - it could be the 30 second clip - it could be more. It does not have to be perfect - these are works in progress. We will have Q and A after each.
Tonight (Wednesday) I will be at Front Range at 6:00PM SL time to discuss editing. This is optional - you may choose to use the time to work on your machinima. We will make use of Google Hangout so please be sure you have a gmail account to use for this purpose.
If anyone wants the Woodsong Zapatero song let me know and i will e-mail it to you. You are free to make an entire movie with the song or create new lyrics - I will have the music sans vocals version as well.
posted message: is there a group for this course in SL? I keep missing the events :( the videos are very cool tho. I have dug out my old copy of The Movies Game. Although the music is copyrighted I think the movies are a bit less so. My current idea is to splice SL and The Movies game together or if that doesnt work use the movies game as an advanced storyboard.
posted message: theres a machima course going on at the builders brewery in 20 mins http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Builders%20Resource/60/74/23 thats 16:30 uk time sat 9th June 2012,...830 am SL game time. On camera use etc looks good.
posted message: I will be on here and there tonight if anyone needs an actor or some feedback or help with their machinima....don't fixate over the 30 seconds. This is supposed to be learning and fun, they do go together, and it really is good to do this with a buddy or a group. IM me..Tanya Smedley (aka grid jumper) if you see me on.
posted message: Tonight is the night for working on 30 second screen captures. You should be in a pair or a group ( you can join an existing group, if you don't have a buddy).
