@Merit. No town, that is a set I built. Most often I put together a place, sometimes building from scratch and film there. Then it comes down after the shoot. So happily for us gals, there is no SL equivalent (that I know of anyway) where the story line has the gals doing all the work. No punch line; life in that town goes on the same these days. I still have a friend that lives there :D.  Mostly just fun playing with my new props. I was so impressed.

I always get icky when someone runs into my moviemaker me and the conversation starts to revolve around making movies for them. Some people want their weddings done, or their concerts or private live even.* I generally wiggle myself out of the commitment.

I made some on my own initiative. One wedding movie for a friend. He didn't know. So it was a surprise.

I have to admit that the music I choose had a double meaning. I was hesitant to use it, but I found it very fitting and they never noticed or didn't want to comment on it.  The song was about someone so obsessed with being adored that they don't care about the other: it doesn't matter what you think as long as you adore me. 

* as a funny side note. There is some well known lady in sl who has a group that has a name along the lines: superior movies. Being who she is, the group is meant for adult movies. I find it hilarious how people from sl subscultures claim words as improved, advanced, superior or creative for their adult and kinky stuff. Do they really believe that or is it to spite the 'normal groups' or is it to gloss over their guilty minds?

Very nice animations there.  I loved them. Looked very naturally how she cut the wood, got her axe stuck and got the woodstumps for further hacking. 

Nice atmosphere in combination with the music. Where was that town? I done  my male avatar, get me a bud and a guitar, sit on the porch, while girls cut the wood, make the dinner and keep the fridge supplied with bud. Thing is: I can't sing, play guitar and don't like budweiser. Ah well, bet a girl like that can also stoke her own brandy. And sing, And play guitar.

The lighting and shades on the singer i liked. I was actually waiting for some punchline at the end.  The girl kicking the guy off his lazy butt. A nuclear blast in the background. Cows running amok. The axe flying and landing somewhere(the guys head?).  Yeah. That is me: i am sick.

@Hypatia, I once agreed to help an RL director film a commercial promoting some honeymoon/wedding sim in SL.  I had only made one or two machinima clips at the time.  Anyway, he was such a diva, the owner of the sim IMed me begging for help when she mortally offended the director by rejecting his footage.  He buried himself in a pile of rocks and refused to come out.  I could not stop laughing.  And never ever agree to do this sort of stuff.

HOHO. Believe it or not this is very much art imitating life :D.   I didn't opt in but lots of gals did and do :D. Thanks for the comment!

That lazy guitar playing man!  Made that woman do all the work.  I was waiting for her to take her ax to his guitar! Dude seriously needed to get his butt kicked!

@ Natascha :D.  Never thought you meant that, honestly.

Comment by Natascha Randt on May 26, 2012 at 5:48am

Yes, Hyp is right, I did not meant that this is  an advertising video.

I got all those same animations at the Animation Fair a few weeks back. Plus a very cool Mediterranean shower. I don't think Nat meant it that way. All of our work"advertises" (ie. "showcases") the builds and environments we choose to put in our machinima. We credit them, even if we put their work to our own uses.

  Unfortunately, you're right. Nobody reads profiles. If they like your work they sometimes ask you to film events.  I just say "I can't; why don't you ask [insert name of someone who is good at filming events]"

@ Natashcha - I do have some sheep which I love but trying to keep the frame rate up with shadows at LEA is sometimes iffy. I lucked out and had a really good period of time. And, I wanted to point out *wink* that while this is in fact a very nice commercial for them, it was not a job. I SO DON'T DO JOBS (people just don't read your profile). I got these props as part of the SL Home and Garden review process and was so entranced by them (well the haying in particular which has lots more than I could show here) I wanted to make something to say thanks. So I hope it helps there business!  The haying animations string (not sure how that works) goes on for-e-ver :D. 

@ CE - thanks, I could live there for sure (with my sheep of course and a bit of furniture for resting) but the set will get dismantled today. All is transitory :D
