Recently I have been hit with an undeniable urge to make movies. In Second Life.
Why Second Life? Life’s more interesting there 🙂 You can be anything, make anything, go anywhere, all in the blink of an eye. In a sense, it’s a filmmaker’s dream.
Also, the camera’s easier to handle, no need to change tapes or anything, and the camerawork tends to be less shaky. Also, you get almost instant satisfaction of actually making the thing come together.
Mostly my videos are in the form of music videos, because I love music, and I have more fun that way 🙂
I’ve written a tutorial on machinima on OS X that I’m rather proud of that distills my weeks of experience in the area. All of my posts on machinima on this blog are tagged as such, and available here.
