YOUR TUBE, YOUR IMAGINATION

Web 2.0 mash-up:  Thanks to the popularity explosion of user-created "viral video" websites, we're starting to see a small but significant burst of cool new SL-made machinima that takes advantage of the audience for this new medium.  Veteran SL filmmaker Pierce Portocarrero has become a one-man cottage industry for these, my recent favorite being this time-lapse construction of a giant pink tank of love.  When Robbie Dingo wasn't busy building a virtual life cannabis plant, he created "Better Life", a genuinely moving short now featured on YouTube.  For the last couple years I've been wondering when SL machinima would begin building up an audience outside the Resident community; with movies like this, now may be the time.
