Exploring Virtual worlds

I finally had a chance to post a video project I’ve had on the backburner all summer. This video “Exploring Virtual Worlds” is a conceptual piece for a video series I’ll be making over the next few months about virtual worlds. The video was shot between April and May and already some of the info like Starwood Hotels in SL is outdated. Time moves pretty quickly in virtual worlds. The original video is two minutes longer and it actually gets into the heart of the virtual world experience. But, since the audience for this video is people (educators more specifically) who have never heard of virtual worlds, I thought I would scale the images and videos back and feature more Real Life than virtual life.

The video is shot with a greenscreen backdrop, edited with Final Cut Pro and finished off with After Effects. The soundtrack is a cumbia written by an Austin Band named Grupo Fantasma, they are currently on tour with Prince. Catch them if you can, they have an unbelievable life show. Enjoy the video…

  • Brill! UG one coming soon?

  • Joe/North Lamar – wonderful job and a great introduction for people who haven’t heard of SL yet. I think the comparison of live meetings and lectures makes the point beautifully.

    And the cumbia? Love it!
