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!

Random Video of the Day: Need a Good Laugh? Do it at the Expense of these Hilarious Goats.





Last week my teenaged daughter said I had to see this and she played it for me at family dinner. Needless to say I nearly choked on my drink.
 Since than I've heard a variety of hit songs with these hilarious screams included and just yesterday while driving in my car, the local radio station actually played a song with Goat collaborations. I had to pull over to crack up laughing.

If this doesn't give you a mere chuckle or have you gasping for air, then you are numb to cheap entertainment. Just sayin'

-Lanai

Special thanks to L.G, you are the best when it comes to showing me crazy Youtube videos. Next time wait til after dinner....

Funny Christmas YouTube Challenge- I gave my kids a Terrible Christmas

The Great Debate about Operation Repo- Is it a staged show or are people really this emotional about getting their car snatched for not making payments?



Today while having a conversation with a  friend about one of my favorite shows, Operation Repo. He told me that it was a staged program. I had a hard time believing it until I saw this video clip, nearly collapsed with laughter, but still a bit confused about it being a skit. Why would Matt take one for the team and why would this young Michael Jackson Impersonator embarass himself like that for 4:41 minutes of fame. If he  has mental issues like Froy says, what is he doing being able to drive???

 Please sit back, with popcorn if you have some, because this is seriously some funny stuff, staged or not. Feel free to leave your opinion in the comment box below!

Have a great weekend!

Reader Video Submission: Outrageous Weirdiculous E-Harmony Bio Are you a cat lover? The SL Enquirer

It gets good at  0:59
Online Dating Services.

It is youtube.com videos like this that introduce me to the real horrors of online matchmaking and hooking up. I was left bewildered at the content of this video even cried because the unintended humor was almost as good as Chris Crocker's infamous LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE! rant. I wonder if these two are related or at least know each other.
