POV of a Virtual Theatre Director

Monday, March 10th, 2008

Live theatre is — by nature — temporal. Although it’s guided by the playscript, as implemented in the director’s vision, what goes on during showtime is quite often spontaneous, and in some cases filled with so many surprises of serendipity or misfortune that nothing appears like anything the director had in mind. But, the magic […]

SimulBot Beta Program Now Accepting Affiliate Sims

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

We are now accepting applicants for affiliate sims in our SimulBot Beta program.
Overview: Over a year ago, John Hurliman brought a rock band of 5 into SL, and managed to “simulSim” them on 12 sims to escape the agent limitations of a single sim in simultaneous performances across the grid. This was a benchmark for […]

Miniproduction: Live Scene 1 - Script

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

Later today, I’ll post a rough promptbook adapted for this medium right about (here - unmarked and marked).
Someone pointed out that the internet sources of the text of Hamlet have “Barnardo” spelled as “Bernardo.” I have been using the Folger’s edition, which has the first folio spelling.

Act 1 Scene 1 Character Sketches

Monday, November 26th, 2007

I should probably have made these sketches available far before now, as I’m typically meticulous in details even for minor characters. I like having every character in medias reas—such that every character, however minor, has an evident backstory. I also like having long discussions over each character—but, since it seems like I most turn into […]

Viz Treats: Trailer and Machinima for Scene 1, SSC Company Site

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

3 viz treats for you in midseason.

A teaser/cinematic-ish preview (2MB preloading .swf). Voice: Kronos Kirkorian Music by Heath Elvehjem.
Storyboard (25 MB .mov Quicktime): what the “rough cut” has metamorphosed into.
Waiting for Enniv to remaster the sound for this. Scrolling Credits, sans Heath Elvehjem who sent in his credits/machinima music too late to make the scroll.
And, […]

The 5 Guys in Scene 1

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Long time no post.
Well, when Ada told me that we should just go with June’s anime-style, I realized that there wasn’t enough time for the machinima for custom-made-everything (and that she wouldn’t be hurt if I executive-veto’ed her exact clothing suggestions).
With a liberal interpretation of history, and with more of an eye towards prettiness and […]

Some visual interpretations of Francisco’s character.
Francisco as a peasant boy who can’t afford better garb:

But, who’s who? (All skins are using the same shape. Eyes/hair/facial hair not yet matched. Just a brief glimpse; none might be used in the end.)
