About Relay For Life of Second Life

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society and has been active, and continually growing in Second Life for 10 years. In 2005, the first Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) was attended by a few hundred avatars and raised almost $5,000 US dollars for the American Cancer Society. As of July 2014 RFL of SL ranks number 17th out of 5000 teams worldwide in donations received. We have brought in over 2 million US dollars to help with the fight against cancer. This year our Relay weekend will be held on July 17th and 18th.

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.

Watch Episode 18 Here

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.

About the MachinEVO 2014 workshop

Moving pictures, sound and stories are the most powerful way of communicating learning content. MachinEVO takes up the challenge of ‘video as a new language of learning’ and proposes to train and equip language teachers to produce visually appealing videos in virtual worlds, commonly called machinima.
