Machiniplex Premiere: "Ephemeral" by Dizzy Banjo (January 18th)
A new Second Life machinima, "Ephemeral", created by Dizzy Banjo will be Premiered this January 18, 2009 from 1oAM to 12PM (pacific time). Dizzy Banjo / Robert Thomas is a composer, virtual media artist and machinima filmmaker. "Ephemeral" was shot in the Princeton Aspire region of Princeton University's Second Life property. Dizzy c0-wrote and directed the film along with composing the wonderful soundtrack. He was assisted by Poid Mahovlich who also designed the film.
The film will screen at Zarathustra Studios in Second Life at 10am. (Here's a time converter you can use) Immediately afterwards there will be a Q&A with the director and possibly some of his collaborators. The slurl for the event is:

"Ephemeral" is a film poem that takes place in an almost fantasy pastoral setting. The two main characters meet and eventually come to a mutual discovery. The tone is dark and strange with a beautiful music and soundtrack. It's one of the best Second Life films I've ever seen and I'm excited that Dizzy, an accomplished musician as well as filmmaker, will be attending the Premiere and answering questions. I can't wait to figure out how he accomplished some of the effects in the film.
If you've never attended a Second Life event before, you can download the software (it's free) and try it out before you come, as it takes a little bit of practice to move around and interact with others. We'll be conducting voice chat primarily, but there will also be text chat going on at the same time if you don't have a mic/headphone. When you are ready, just click the link above and it will take you right to the location. If you get lost just text me in-world. My name there is gtoon Jun. Many arrive early for the Premiere, so don't be afraid to ask questions.

See you there!
