Charismatic Resume

I like to play in Second Life, but I also write, dance, choreograph, and work with video. If you think you might need someone to choreography some songs, look me up. My anims collection is growing, and I actually love doing it. Same with writing. Same with dancing. Same with videoing. Learn more about things I do below.

As part of Palais, I wrote both articles, fiction, and poetry. Articles dealt with topics, such as art, fashion, family, and literature. If you’d like to read an article, e-mail me, and I will send electronic copies.

I write about many different things for SLE. One minute, I can be interviewing a fashion designer and the next, I can be writing about my near-death at a greasy dive. You can read all articles of mine with SLE by going directly to my threadFebruary – March 2012 acted as interim president/publisher for SLE as I delegated stories to writers, paid writers, edited stories, and published stories to the site.

VIDEO EXPERIENCE
I love learning about machinima and hope to do some awesome things with what I’m learning. I have recorded from SL several times in the past, just doing straight shooting, nothing fancy. So now, I’m learning more about shots and setting scenes and editing, so I’m geeked. Click the titles below to see each video I’ve created thus far.

  • August 2011 :: Run the World SL Style – this is my first one and though the video is grainy, I was happy with the choreography I did for Beyonce’s “Run the World”.
  • August 2011 :: Air Puppet – I was playing with my puppet strings and AO…and my camera hud, and developed this.
  • August 2011 :: Official Trailer for Unity Productions’ The Misfits – Not really filmed in SL, but that’s not really the point. I liked it, and so did those who have viewed it thus far. *smirk*
  • August 2011-current :: Worked as an intern but now am a volunteer for The Actor’s Sandbox in SL. It meets every Wednesday, alternating 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. SLT. There, I shoot video of monologues, scenes, and exercises to be used for promotional material and for the website.
  • September 2011 :: Participated in this year’s 48-Hour Film Project – Machinima for the film A Model Situation as AD. You can see the movie at YouTube.
