Further to the previous post about Second Life, here’s more evidence of ‘accessibility’ to people. Last night I got an invite from the guys at MillionsOfUs to attend a screening of Eduardo Sánchez‘ new movie, ‘Altered‘. I hadn’t watched a full feature film in world before, so I teleported over to a drive-in cinema in SL and sat on the floor (I didn’t bring the car) then set my viewing camera angle right up at the screen and sat back and watched it.
It was great! I really like films of this genre. They’re fun. The framerate was great and the film ran perfectly.
But the really cool part was that after everyone had finished the movie, we gathered around and chatted with the director himself! Eduardo, who also directed The Blair Witch Project was there to answer any questions about Altered and BWP. Some great Qs and As. His favourite horror flicks are The Exorcist and The Shining 😉 He’d like to try machinima, but will be sticking with horror for now. He may still use consumer cameras in the future and he loves YouTube and the internet for getting attention. 😉
Altered was originally a comedy script. He has never had a close encounter, but his ‘mad aunt’ has had many and used to go about them all the time!
It’s not all about zombies, aliens, ghosts, witches and intestines you know. 😉 Eds dream is to raise a few million and give 10-20 filmmakers the chance to make a movie for 100K. Nice dream!
