Two Machinima Films Premiering in April

A clip from "Voices", directed by Katy Fosk.

Machiniplex will be featuring two new films at the end of April. On Saturday, April 20th at 12PM (Pacific Time) we will be presenting "Voices", a Machinima film by Katy Fosk. Once again, we'll be having the premiere at Hathead's Tower Lounge in Second Life. We plan on showing the film a bit after 1pm and then Katy and Micheal R. Joyce (who co-created the film) will be on hand for a Q&A.

And then on April 27th (Sunday) at 12PM (Pacific Time) we will be premiering Tom Jantol's "The Wizard of OS: the Fish Incident", also at Hathead's Tower Lounge in Second Life. Tom won the European Machinima award for best experimental film last year. This film is even better, in my opinion.

I'm very grateful to Katy and Tom for allowing Machiniplex to premiere their films. We are particularly pleased to present both films since they are experimental in nature. This type of film is not often seen in machinima, a medium dominated by realism and genre. Both films experiment with form and content, and yet tell interesting stories that are filled with ideas as well as poetic imagery.

Katy has created a blog entry discussing the film here. It's the April 7th entry (2nd one down). And Tom's blog has most of his previous films, including previous "Wizard of OS" entries.

The address (slurl) of Hathead's Tower Lounge is:

Second Life is free and easy to sign up. We use a combination of voice chat and text chat for our premiere events. So if you have a mic/headphone set up come early to make sure you are ready to go.

We will be streaming the films on a large screen in the Tower Lounge. Be sure to update your Quick Time version, since Second Life uses QT (.mov) as the video stream of choice.

You can use this time converter to find out when 12pm Pacific Time is for your time zone

And, as always, both films will be available at our Machiniplex.com film site a few days before the premiere. We hope you can find the time to see these exceptional films and to come by our Second Life premiere and chat with the directors.
