Event Type: book launch, party launch, celebration Organized By: Sonicity Fitzroy [https://my.secondlife.com/sonicity.fitzroy] and Asil Ares [https://my.secondlife.com/asil.ares] The team behind The NeoVictoria Project™ the well-known Second Life® roleplaying simulation and machinima studio, is thrilled to host two special appreciation parties to celebrate the publication of "Machinima.The Art and Practice of Virtual Filmmaking" by Phylis Johnson [Sonicity Fitzroy in Second Life] and Donald Pettit [Lowe Runo in Second Life].
About the parties: The events will include live entertainment and special presentations. The Friday launch party music will be provided by Gabrielle Riel [https://my.secondlife.com/Gabrielle.Riel] in a live broadcast on Radio Riel Steampunk [http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel-steampunk]. These are Steampunk themed, though dressing to theme is not required. All adult-verified Second Life residents are invited. Avatars must be adult-verified to enter the estate, which is crafted for mature roleplay. [This event is taking place on the sky level, where there is no roleplay.] From the Authors Sonicity Fitzroy & Lowe Runo: "We appreciate all those involved in this project and we consider it a collaborative effort among numerous people inside SL as well as those looking in from the outside. This book is not intended to promote SL, but we seriously view it as a major platform for the creation of innovative machinima. This is not the definitive voice in machinima, but a collective voice within the virtual filmmaking community that represents many perspectives. The machinima story will continue to evolve, and we are pleased to document this point in history, as well as to encourage so many to experiment with this medium through this book." About the Book: Published by McFarland & Company, "Machinima. The Art and Practice of Virtual Filmmaking" is aimed at beginning or intermediate machinima storytellers and is an informative and useful overview of this emerging art form. With interviews, essays and discussions from leading machinima producers, reviewers, performers and advocates, it discusses scripting basics, character development and set design, as well as tips on crafting machinima through creative use of sound, lighting and post-production.
