I interview director Ambrosia Lanley at SL Enquirer

I LOVE when I meet cool people on the grid. Sometimes, it doesn’t even come from actually meeting them, per se. I’ve never seen director, producer, and writer Ambrosia Lanley in the cyber flesh. A notice from a group appeared that mentioned her latest movie’s premiere, and because I love machinima so much and am a budding machinimatographer, I wanted to find out about this premiere. In wanting to learn that piece of information, I talked with Ambrosia a bit and decided I wanted to interview her and check out more of her work.

The interview at SLE is part of that checking out. Come, head over to SLE to read up on this dynamic woman and to learn more about your intriguing movies. You won’t be disappointed!

Latest SLE Feature – I Talk with Ballet Pixelle’s Inarra Saarinen

Hi there, party peoples!

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted. RL has been uber-tiring…seriously.

However, here I be, and I’m here to tell you about my latest feature for SL Enquirer. I was charged with talking with Inarra Saarinen, artistic director and choreographer for Ballet Pixelle. As a person who loves dance (and you know I love dance), I was eager to learn more about Saarinen’s vision, the work Ballet Pixelle has done . . . and share this info (and more) with the readers!

Unity Premieres Latest Production, SHAKEN INTO PEACE Today!

So You Think You Can Choreograph? Latest SLE Article

Hey all! It’s been awhile since I’ve written an article for Second Life Enquirer, but what with RL dissertation and SL filming, it’s been a tiring, tiring journey. I won’t even get into all the other things I’ve been working on. So, yeah, moving on!

My latest SLE article is awesome. Yes, I’m patting self on back–HARD. I pulled together four women who are great dancers and choreographers on the grid and had them talk to me about dancing, choreographing as an art form in Second Life. The women? Dance Queens Founder Nottoo Wise, The Dazzlers CEO Pyper Dollinger, Unity Productions Founder Pet Karu, and A&M MOCAP Assistant/Support and Gorean dancer Tiviyah Resident.

Aside from their views on dancing and choreography, I also share my recent work into choreography and offer a raw video of my rehearsing a song I’m dancing this weekend.

What I’m Working On — AWAY Film Project

I always have my hands in several cookie jars at once, but one project I’m currently working on was kind of birthed through two things: my Cleaning Out My Closet photos for this month and the comment left by my lovely girlfriend.

I love dressing in doll and puppet, and it kind of surprised me that I would go somewhat dark with the pictures I took. My girlfriend Earth talked about the story that seemed to developed of the doll through the pictures, and she was interested in that story. Truth was, I was, too.

The doll in those photos stuck with me, and because of that, AWAY is being birthed.

Away is my next short film, and it’s about Gabriella, a woman who thinks she has found happily ever after, only to find herself swept away to a place where she becomes The Doll for her mate. Although it will be a short piece (thinking less than 10 minutes), I feel like this doll wants to talk more, so who knows where she will go.

The goal is to release the film next month. I’ve already shot some footage and am working on fleshing out dialogue and remaining shots so that I can shoot them and go into editing.

For now, here’s a short trailer to Away.
