Calling the Film-Makers of Second Life – do you have a Fantasy Faire tale to tell?

We’ve talked about the Faire being a time to tell stories – and one of the ways we love to experience stories is through film and television – in our Second Lives as well as our Firsts.

And there have been some stunningly beautiful films created at Fantasy Faires in the past.

But it can be difficult to create films at the Faire when the regions are filled with people, and your framerate drops to … “What? What??? Oh I am so going to crash!”

So this year, we are going to give five Second Life film-makers/machinimists the chance to come into the Faire early and create their stories while the regions are still quiet.

Why only five?
Well, people are still building, and each film-maker will need to work with us to ensure that they are filming what is finished (or certainly ready to film!). And as this is the first year we have done this, we want to ensure that we are able to help you to the best of our abilities.

How do I apply?
Just contact Saffia Widdershins inworld or via email at saffia.widdershins@gmail.com by midnight Saturday 26th April.

Explain what you would like to film (whether you you want create a story with actors, an abstract pieces of a travelogue), and supply a link to a previous film or machinima you have shot.
