Time Travelers episode 6 filmed in Second Life is incredible


Watch the sixth and final episode of the Pooky Amsterdam’s “Time Travelers” series filmed in Second Life and I think it’s really incredible from start to finish. Episode 6 runs for 14 minutes and 18 seconds full of great special effects and amazing detail filmed in Second Life. It goes to a whole new level I think and it’s a real thriller!. 

The “Time Travelers” series started in 2010 by PookyMedia productions and over the years there has been more interest in general. Check out the backstory on the time travelers which is an interesting read. See full details and video below for episode 6 and enjoy.

The final episode – for now, brings together our Time Travelers and the Meks, with Zanzibar’s capture of Maria. We will experience what the Time Travelers, with the help of the advanced AI Sebastian must do to stop the Meks and their leader Zanzibar…by using every resource in their power. The opening of the Baby Universe becomes a trap. Whose future will win out, are we running out of time to Save the Future?

We are all of us connected, none more so than the Teen Time Travelers who must fight to escape the danger of the approaching Meks. As they jump through time and again meet their future selves, the stakes escalate around the future as they must follow their present destiny. Game on!

The award-winning series, Time Travelers, is an animated adventure series about the future. The series showcases future careers in science such as geoengineering for alternative energy, nanobiolology and neuroscience for learning and health care.

Paradise Lost featured in episode 18 of The Drax Files


It’s been interesting to follow developments on Paradise Lost during recent months and I’m a fan of this series. Today Draxtor Despres uploaded the latest episode 18 of The Drax Files on YouTube. This month it’s all about Paradise Lost which is a fantastic episode from start to end. The episode runs for 4 minutes and 59 seconds and please spread the word about Paradise Lost.

It’s great to see Canary Beck and Harvey Crabsticks in this episode in real life form. There are funny parts, interesting parts and great footage during this episode. The views of their sim and production set is very cool indeed. The amazing part in the episode is when we are told that the audience is in the middle of the production which is rather smart. Near the end of the episode there are shots from the west end of London and Second Life.

The production features 43 roles and played by 8 avatar actors. Paradise Lost opens officially in Second Life on Saturday 5th April 2014, with a second premiere showing on Sunday 6th April 2014. I can’t wait and over recent months Paradise Lost has attracted more fans from across the grid.

Absolutely amazing and I can’t wait for episode 19 of The Drax Files to come out. The latest news on Paradise Lost can be found here.

New video shows beta testing of the Oculus Rift Second Life Beta viewer


A new video has been uploaded this week showing new beta testing of the Oculus Rift Second Life Beta viewer filmed by Marc Weerts. The video runs for 12 minutes and 20 seconds showing the user interface. The video is a nice overview of the Oculus Rift Second Life Beta viewer.

I’m beta testing the new viewer for Second Life, by Linden Labs, which will support the Oculus Rift natively. Really exciting, to be able to actually walk around in the virtual world and feel like you are really there. They also did a good job of incorporating the UI.

Marc mentions on Facebook that it’s really cool to walk around SL with the Rift. Marc says he can’t wait for the DK2 version and what LL will do in future versions of the viewer.

It’s very exciting to see new video coverage of the Oculus Rift Second Life Beta viewer and hopefully there will be new videos soon. For the latest news, visit the Oculus Rift and Second Life Facebook page to stay updated. So far there have been 705 likes for the page and hopefully interest will grow over the coming months.
