Virtually News with AvaJean Westland – Premiere today at 2pm

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

Virtually Newsn with AvaJean Westland

Virtually Newsn with AvaJean Westland

You are cordially invited to the premiere of the comedy machinima “Virtually News with AvaJean Westland” this Saturday, September 13th 2014 at 2:00pm SLT at the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) sim. Creator AvaJean Westland will be on hand with actors and crew (scheduling permitted) from the film to talk about the making of the piece and to answer questions.

Dress is upscale casual to formal – whichever you choose. Please keep scripts and prim counts low, and please arrive a little early to get your seat and for textures to rez.

We will be showing the film in-world as well as provide links for YouTube, Vimeo and SLartist. So if you can’t make the premiere in-world, let me know and I’ll send you the links when the film is live.

This film is for mature audiences only; please ensure no very young children are watching!

Virtually News with AvaJean Westland
Virtually News with AvaJean Westland” is a mock/spoof news piece machinima created by actress/writer Gameela Wright. Filmed exclusively in Second Life, in the vein of SNL’s “Weekend Update” and “The Onion News Network,” AvaJean’s irreverent take on current events and pop culture pushes the boundaries while using animation as the filter.

Biography
Gameela Wright (pronounced “Guh-MEAL-uh”) is an actress and writer based out of New York. She began acting in theater, then moved into commercials, voice overs, television and film. Some of her on-camera credits include:

TV: Blue Bloods, The 3 Law & Order series, The Blacklist, Members Only (new series)
Film: Admission, John Wick, Shelter
Commercials: Staples, FedEx, Ally Bank, GoDaddy.com

As her Second Life alter ego AvaJean Westland, she performs live theater with the Avatar Repertory Theater Company (ART). She has worked as a voice actor or avatar puppeteer for The Blackened Mirror, Running Lady Productions, Chantal Harvey, Island Rain Studios, and Alfonso Kohn.

She created her own production umbrella, Virtual Girl Productions and has collaborated with Suzy Yue of Running Lady Studios on machinima projects such as “The Twilight Sim” and “Name That Schmuck!”

In addition, she created machinima for the Project Homeless campaign (“The Quiet Dark Wind”) and SciFi Film Festival (“Centuries Past”) in conjunction with Screen My Shorts and The University of Western Australia (UWA). “Centuries Past” took home two awards.

It is her hope to use machinima as a way to bridge real and second life and to help cement machinima as a form of animation that appeals to all.

Designing Worlds at the Relay for Life Weekend – now on the web!

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we look back at the stunning builds that we saw at the Relay for Life of Second Life weekend at the end of July – is now on the web.

Sadly, we only had time to visit a few of the great builds, and talk to a small number of the talented creators behind them – we just wish we could have shown everything. Thankfully, our wonderful photographer Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to ensure that we have many more on our slide show!

Prim Perfect Jigsaw: Dutchie’s Canal Boat

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

Dutchie's Canal Barge Home

Dutchie’s Canal Barge Home

Today’s Designing Worlds’ show will be a visit to the new house that Froukje Hoorenbeeke has created for Dutchie – and to whet your appetite a little, we have a jigsaw of one of the lovely Dutchie canal boats.

Like many of Dutchie’s homes, inspiration is drawn from her native Netherlands, and this is one of the converted canal boats that you might find of the famous Dutch canals, making someone a cosy home.

Her new home is … rather larger – and we’ll be posting more about the show (and where you can see the home for yourselves) later today.

In the mean-time – enjoy the jigsaw!

Catch up with your Prim Perfect jigsaws (showing images of Second Life and other virtual worlds).

If you’d like to submit a photo of your own to feature as a jigsaw, send it to the Prim Perfect Flickr Group. It should be sized 800w x 600h, or else it will need to be re-sized.

Designing Worlds explores Dutchie’s New Home

Join us today, Monday 15th September at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams as we visit the wonderful new home that Froukje Hoorenbeek has created for Dutchie.

It’s a magnificent build that has been two years in the making. Froukje has released various pieces and sets over the last two years that were created for the house – and many have found their way into homes across the grid. But now, for the first time, all that creativity is drawn together in one magnificent home – and Designing Worlds was given the opportunity to explore it.

And as we explore it, we talk to Froukje about how she designs and creates, and the role that her life in the Netherlands plays in her creations.

You’ll be able to see this magnificent house for yourselves at the Home and Garden Expo.

This is a fascinating show that all lovers of fine design in Second Life will adore – make sure that you don’t miss it!

Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist or on Treet – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site at http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds, on the SLArtist.com channel, the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog.

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

Every day at 4pm SLT, we will be holding a lantern release from the ramparts of the Prim Perfect castle.  It’s a short time for quiet reflection, for thinking of those we have lost, for celebrating those who are still with us.

The Lantern Release

The best place to watch will probably the stone circle overlooking the castle.  And after the lantern release, while you are here, you can also explore the element of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem, The Lady of Shalott, which Aisling Sinclair has incorporated in this beautiful build.

Come and join us at 4pm each day of the Expo for a beautiful and moving ceremony.
