The Wafflies are presented!

This Fantasy Faire saw the first awarding of the Wafflies – a series of special awards to machinima shot within the Fairelands.

There were three categories:
Livestreaming
Factual
Fictional

Awards were given by the Jury, with a special People’s Choice award, voted for by the public (using RFL kiosks to register their votes).

Attendees wore their best Film Awards costumes, and there was an After Party in the Hall of the Golden Stag on Mythspire Ridge, dj’d by Aoife Lorefield. The hosts for the awards were Chantal Harvey and Saffia Widdershins.

And now to the results.

Film Festival: Trailer for Harland Quinn and the Omega Hex

Tomorrow, Sunday May 1st, Fairelands Media will be premiering the first episode of its opening production – Harland Quinn and the Omega Hex.

And here to give you a taste of it is our trailer …

When a lethal, magical anomaly out of the pages of legend begins wreaking havoc all across the Fairelands, it falls to a mismatched band of heroes to stop it before it’s too late. A Dark-Elven femme fatale, an erudite librarian, a rough-and-tumble sanitation worker, and a hard-boiled Private Detective will have to overcome their differences if they’re going to solve the enigma of the Omega-Hex, and of a mysterious scientist who may not be what she seems.

Join us at 11am SLT in the Hall of the Golden Stag on Mythspire Ridge. Or, if you can’t be there at 11am, join us for a second showing at 7pm SLT.
