Yes, you read that right! BREAKING NEWS happened last night at the Literary Festival. Perhaps you already heard about it, but in case you didn’t do not forget: you read about it here first!
Saffia Widdershins interviewed Second Life Author and Machinimist Huckleberry Hax about his work, and his life as a purely digital identity as a writer and machinima maker. And we all know Saffia has a way of making people tell her all the things. And she did not disappoint!
Before we knew it Huckleberry spilled the tea, and announced he is working on a new feature-length movie, shot in Second Life. Whether it is a sequel or a prequel of Stomöl, or something completely different, is still a secret. But he told the audience that he already has some 40 minutes footage done. The movie will, as all goes to plan, be released in the summer of 2022 and if it goes to plan even more…we might see a trailer on the next Fantasy Faire Literary Festival.
And while the crowd was cheering and clapping with hands and wings, Mr. Hax also mentioned he will soon be holding a casting call for a major character in this new movie! (Keep an eye on Huck’s website for more information).
Pretty exciting news, right?
In case you missed the interview, don’t fret! The awesome Dawny Daviau live-streamed the event on YouTube and you can watch it whenever you want. Or re-watch it!
Tomorrow, wednesday 28 april at 3PM SLT you are welcome to Dragon’s Dream at Líng xiāo lóng 灵霄龙 to come watch the movie STÖMOL.
STÖMOL is a feature-length sci-fi machinima filmed entirely in Second Life®. STÖMOL is written, filmed and directed by Huckleberry Hax, who will be introducing the machinima. It was released in 2020 and went on to win second place in the main competition at the 2020 SUPERNOVA digital animation film festival.
Happy Faire everyone!
