Machinima Weekend on Second Life Teen Grid: July 21-22

machinimaWeekend036a, originally uploaded by HVX Silverstar.

Eye4youAlliance Island and the machinima and wellness educators and teen instructors welcomed teens from across the grid to our first ever Machinima Weekend - July 21-22. We are shown here at the end of sessions taking group shots during the NASA rocket ship blast off with a previous launch being streamed to the screen behind us. The file was streamed into SL from the Merlin Rocket server in France. Slideshows were created in Powerpoint and images of the slides were imported into Second Life to create ThinC books and corresponding scripted projection screens which the teens and adult instructors used to familiarize themselves with the topics before the hands-on sessions. View some of the slideshows on Slideshare.net/hvxsilverstar (FRAPS, A Very Brief History of Machinima, Using YouTube's New TestTube: Video Remix, Audio Swap, Camtasia, Prism, Shoot Better Machinima Using the Second Life Browser, Machinima & Actors: Using Gestures & Animations,Online Editing - Group Movies: an introduction to Jumpcut.
