Iris Ophelia's ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style
One of Second Life's most acclaimed journalists and machinima artists has a new project, and it'll give you some amazing insight into the kinds of people that not only use Second Life, but shape the virtual world around them. The Drax Files: World Builders by Draxtor Despres recently came out with its second episode, featuring the face of SL's 1920's Berlin (and NWN reader) Jo Yardley. Take a look for yourself after the jump.
It's a fascinating look at one of the people responsible for one of Second Life's most treasured communities, as informative as it is beautiful and well-produced. Unsurprisingly both Hamlet and I are huge fans of much of Draxtor's previous work, which includes machinima work for media, profiles of other interesting and prominent residents, the documentary Login 2 Life, and a few zany side projects here and there.You can also check out episode 1's interview with Kriss Lehmann, the man behind a vast amount of SL's lush digital foliage. Given how many people are in as much awe of Draxtor's work as that of his interview subjects, I can't wait to see what's coming in episode 3!
