Interview with a Vampire Gone Wrong- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

      First published October 14, 2013. 

With Halloween creeping up on us, I thought I would pound the SL pixel pavement in search of a friendly vampire that wouldn’t mind sitting down with me for an interview. Without fearing I would be bitten and turned into a pale night walking blood junkie, I searched high and low for this elusive fanged creature with baseball bat in hand for protection. As I came upon Harry the Vampire, I must have startled him while he was digging though a dumpster because he let out the most girlish scream I have ever heard...


At first it appeared he was out for blood until he revealed an unusual fear of it, and the dark.  I’ve seen a lot of cruel and unusual behavior in Second Life but who on Linden’s laggy grid would think of biting this kitten of a man and leaving him to deal with such a torturous existence.

I needed to know more, so I took my opportunity before his candle expired.

Second Lifers Open Their Skeleton Closets for a Quick Peek - LadyLoveDr Reporting


Everyone has skeletons in their closets.  The real question is, would you let a stranger take a peek in yours?  I polled 20 Second Life citizens and asked them all the same question, "What secrets are the skeletons in your closet hiding?"  The results were both unbelievable and surprising.  From this project, I noticed that women were more forthcoming with telling a stranger their deepest, darkest secret than men.  Out of everyone polled, there were 5 citizens who not only had skeletons in their closets, these skeletons were dancing!  Here are the five most intense and iniquitous skeletons, names have been concealed to protect their identities. 


Female nurse:  The major secret that I hide, is that I'm a nymphomaniac and I ended up in the middle of a 30 man gang-bang at Eroticon a few years ago.

LadyLoveDr:  Were you left with any gifts that keep on giving?

Female nurse:  Fortunately not!  All of it was protected and safe!





Female bartender:  I've done hard time for possession of narcotics with intent to sell.  It actually wasn't mine, it was just in my car and my passenger refused to admit it was his.

LadyLoveDr:  How long were you locked up?

Female bartender:  I was sentenced to three and a half years but ended up only doing a little under 2 years total.






Male librarian:  If you're talking real life, I'd have to say it's that I weigh over 350 pounds.  If your referring to second life, it would be that I had drunk sex with the stripper at my bachelor party.

LadyLoveDr:  Does your SL wife know about the drunk sex?

Male librarian:  She doesn't get on SL anymore so I guess you can say i'm a widower.  But I don't think she suspected anything.  Since we're on the subject, are you single  and looking?

LadyLoveDr:  Sorry to disappoint you, my SL avatar is A-sexual.

Male librarian:  I have no idea what that means.

LadyLoveDr:  Basically it means I don't attach myself to anyone else.  I'm strictly solo.


Female dog groomer:  I had sex with my boss for a raise in pay.  It was the biggest mistake of my life.

LadyLoveDr:  How much of a raise did you get?

Female dog groomer:  The deal was he would make it worth my while.  As it turned out, he wanted to get more of it than I did.  He wanted to give me 5 cents in raise every time I slept with him.

LadyLoveDr:  What was the final result?

Female dog groomer:  I got a better paying job and didn't have to sleep with anyone to advance my career. 






Male sous chef:  I lied on my job application about graduating from culinary school. Technically, I don't even have my high school diploma.

LadyLoveDr:  Where did you learn to cook?

Male sous chef:  I watched the cooking network like twenty-four seven.  I learned a bunch of great stuff on there!

LadyLoveDr:  Did they ever find out you lied?


Male sous chef:  No, I know so much about cooking, they never even question anything!

Machinima in Second Life - Piers Diesel Reporting


Machinima is digital video production in a virtual world or video game environment. You can find these types of productions featured on Youtube or Vimeo. The creativity is endless and provides a glimpse into the virtual world and the many things it has to offer.


In Second Life, the world of Machinima is still going strong and flourishing. It is always interesting to see what new video have been created by well know or new and upcoming creators and what inspires their work.



Rysan Fall

Rysan Fall is one of the first Machinima Artists in Second Life.  His talents include voice over work, virtual wedding videos, tutorials and award winning short film projects such as The Invisible City, about the homeless.   His work provokes emotion and provides a very creative and genuine look into what Machinima really is. Rysan is also The SL Enquirer official commercial producer.

Piers: Rysan, How long have you been creating Machinima?

Rysan: I have to explain that I taught myself most of everything I know about editing video. I found a unique way to help myself learn the principals of filming and editing video.  There's an online community called "second life" where people live out certain aspects of their lives in a virtual world.  Second life has its own monetary system, using a currency called "lindens" which could be transferred over to actual USD dollars. People have businesses, have relationships and make money in this virtual world. 
The word “Machinima” or “Machine Cinema” was created to name videos or films created in a virtual environment.

This initially was intended to be practice for real life film making. When I started I had no idea there was a whole genre of film making dedicated to filming in a virtual environment. My videos became popular in the machinima community, which really was a surprise to me. I decided to offer my skills to business, creating commercials and making keepsake (wedding) videos for the people in this virtual environment.  My desire to make more detailed machinima films grew, and real life film making kind of took a back seat. But I wanted to take what I’ve learned and put it to real life film.

Piers: What inspires your work and how has it enriched your life?

Rysan:  Machinima has been very good to me, and I am very grateful for everything it’s given me. I’ve been interviewed countless times, I’ve spoke at many lectures, events and universities. I’ve had the opportunity to work for Tufts University, University of Florida, and the University of Central Missouri. I’ve even been honored with filming the first Virtual College Graduation ceremony for Bryant Stratton College in Second Life featured on FOX National News. One thing I was really excited about, I was contacted by U2's Principle Management to inform me that my U2inSL video was selected to be played on the big screen at the Glastonbury Festival in the U.K. as the REAL U2 perform their song, "Even Better Than the Real Thing".  My visuals went through the approval processes from Linden Labs to me and finally approved by U2's Principle Management. That was really exciting for me. I’ve been interviewed for The Book “Machinima: The Art and Practice of Virtual Filmmaking.  A few of my videos was seen by a company called How2Connect.com, which specializes in providing online therapy and EAP solutions for subscribers. They were in the process of creating their own virtual world at the time, and wanted someone to make their machinima for them. They flew me to California for a week and asked me to become a part of their team, and I accepted. After 4 years I, now edit all of their “Real Life” department  video. They are now called 1virtualhealth.com

Along with all of this, I do voice over work also. I have also done some radio. I used to have a weekly hip hop news segment on an underground hip hop show called “The Fireset” on 90.7 WTCC. I am now currently doing VO work for CPTV sports.  I’ve just stated working in the creative services dept. for FOX News in CT.

This video is very cleverly done with attention to detail. It provokes real emotion and creates a bridge between reality and virtual expression. Rysan has shown that his work is his passion.

Bryn Oh

Bryn work was has always intrigued me. Bryn attention to detail is second to none and the work that they put into each video is not only inspiring but also captivates the audience to wont to watch more of their work. 
Piers: Bryn, How long have you been creating Machinima?

Bryn: I have been working in Machinima for 6 years now

Piers: What inspires your work and how has it enriched your life?

Bryn:  I used to have them on a site called Blip but then they deleted my account for some reason, but many are still on YouTube.  https://www.youtube.com/user/BrynOhMy work is a form of diary where I take elements within my life and tell them as loose narratives, sometimes as poetry.  It is cathartic I think, simply a way to express honest feelings anonymously in a virtual space which would, perhaps, be hurtful to say to family and friends otherwise.  It enriches my life in that I am able to be creative as well as be able to express deeply felt emotions which may not come out as readily in other mediums.  For me it is also rewarding to know that there are those who associate on some level to those same feelings I express in my work.  Sometimes you release things to the void of the internet and much like a message in a bottle it simply disappears out to sea, other times a bottle returns and it is that moment which I cherish.


Not the newest of work by Bryn but the cinematography is perfect to me. Short yet excellently executed.

Piers: What inspires your work and how has it enriched your life?

jjccccc: My inspiration comes from the Love  of Art. I make videos to try stuff out they may look crappy and badly arranged but each one is a learning curve of different ideas, So far I don’t think I’ve made a really descent video but I continue to try

Sophia Yates
Sophia Yates Machinima Film Productions is a Virtual Production company she has ha created within the 3D Virtual World of Second Life. This is a new channel as Sophia is not able to log into her original account. She is a business woman also she is owner of  FilmStrip,Profile Magazine Today, Photographer and Publisher, so a lady of many talents.
         



Machinima is an art form and an outlet for expression.  It takes creativity, time and passion to produce a film that holds the attention of an audience. There is so much more put into it then pressing record and capturing whatever appears before the lens.
Planning begins with creating a storyline, script, scouting for actors, environments and paying attention to details such as lighting, audio, transitions and timing. These are just a few of the things that Machinima producers must take into consideration. So the next time you watch a Machinima video that might only be 4 minutes long, realize that it may have taken them weeks or even months to create.
 These are just a few of the talented Machinima artists you will find across the grid. There are others which you may feel have been missed out in this feature. If you know a Machimina artist that should be recognized by the SL Enquirer, share their information below in the comment box with a link to their work!
