Carol Anne Hagele contacted me and asked if I could post the following: it's not as dull as it looks. Her institution wants a fantasy dramatization for elementary school children that will alert them to some serious insect threats in a Public Service Announcement. There will be remuneration (I asked her). It also has a deadline. Please feel free to contact her (information below):
Attention machinima creators: We are looking for someone who is well versed in this technology and might be interested discussing the feasibility of creating a machinima-style public service announcement (PSA) in a short amount of time that will help the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District in West Covina, California address the current crisis of invasive Asian tiger mosquitoes.
For more information and/or to discuss the feasibility of this project please contact Carol Anne either by phone Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM or by email (see contact information below).

I looked up aedes aldopictus (Asian Tiger mosquito). Impressive and horrible insect. Details here:
I imagine the evil fairy mosquito could wear quite a fantastic black and white striped garment. I'd do this if I weren't supposed to write two long postponed conference papers (first one due in a month). Also need to get a new space navi. :(
Sounds like a wonderful project for someone, unfortunately not me though. I look forwards to watch this project develop and hope we may see the eventual outcome here, if anyone runs with it :)
