Four minutes….

As the Faire will close soon, later today – or perhaps they will stay materialised a bit longer as has happened before! – this will be my last blog-post for this years amazing experience.

I’ve enjoyed exploring, taking pictures, the parties, the Quest, the literary Festival, meeting people, shopping and trying to make videos of all the wonderful things I have seen.

Fantasy Faire 2016 - In the deep waters of OtherWorld

Admitting I have not blogged as much as I had planned, but then…real life happened and if anything….I can tell you it was a blessing and a joy to log in to the Fantasy Faire after a day of sitting in a hospital waiting room. Yes, this years Faire was more than ever a reminder to me why Relay for Life is so damn important. It hit closer to home than I wished it would.

My thanks go to all of you visiting, shopping (and thus donating), the creators and sim designers, the lovely people in the group chats, the photographers, the party-people, the artists….well, all of you!

I will miss the Fairelands, till they will appear again in 2017….till then, I have made this video, The Fantasy Faire 2016 in 4 minutes, as a memory and to look back at. I hope you enjoy it too.

See you all next year, be safe, be good and..be you!

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.
