Machiniplex Premiere: "Joy of Music" by Chantal Harvey on Sunday, Jan 31st

Machiniplex is proud to announce a Premiere of Chantal Harvey's new machinima "Joy of Music". We will be screening the film next Sunday, January 31st at 1030AM to 12PM (noon) Pacific Time. The location is Pooky Amsterdam's "StudioDome" in Second Life. Our thanks to Pooky for helping out with the Premiere on short notice.




Chantal Harvey has been a major presence in Second Life culture and machinima for several years now. She's created over 30 machinima films, is the producer for the 48hour film project for machinima and is the founder of the MaMachinima International Festival which will take place on February 20, 2010.



"Joy of Music" is the pilot for a new machinima series for children (and adults). It was written by Madcow Cosmos and was filmed on location at IBM2 sims in Second Life. The audio is by Lorin Tone, the boy is played by Judi Newall and the voice over is by Lauren Weyland. Directed by Chantal Harvey.

We feel that "Joy of Music" is Chantals finest work to date. The combination of technical excellence and surreal style reminds us of early Disney. Add to that a superb voice over and great sound and you have a top level machinima, the kind you want to show people who have never heard of machinima.



Chantal (and I suspect some of the crew) will be on hand after we screen the film to answer questions and discuss the details of creating this unique and entertaining machinima. Come early as it may be crowded. Should be a lot of fun.

DATE: Sunday, January 31st from 1030AM to 1200PM (noon) Pacific Time
LOCATION: Pooky Amsterdam's "The StudioDome".

If you've never been to Second Life before it's very easy to get started. The program is free and is a snap to install. You probably should go through the orientation that Linden Labs (creators of SL) provides so you'll know how to move around and use the interface. The Premiere is "beginner friendly" so there will be plenty of people to help you out.

Second Life info

We will be conducting the Premiere using voice chat so you'll need a headset and mic. But if you don't have a mic, you can use text chat to interact at the Q&A.

Come to the "Joy of Music" Premiere and chat with the director afterwards. It's a great opportunity to learn more about machinima and find inspiration for your own work.

See you there!

    I'm geting a lot out of these sessions, finding the movie makers fascinating, and it's great to see such a variety of people attending these events. Thanks to everyone involved. -Kate

    Thank you, Kate. I feel the same way. Reaching out to other filmmakers and interested folks outside of the community is one of the goals of Mplex. And providing a platform for accomplished filmmakers to talk about their films and working methods is another. We've been very pleased with the response and hope to increase the amount of events this year.

    We missed you spyvspy. Working on a way of archiving the sessions with audio at least. Not in place yet, so I can't offer the Chantal Premiere for you to listen to.

    If anyone else recorded the event, please let me know.

    -Ricky
