Get the Inside Story On Some of Second Life's Most Beautiful Spaces With Draxtor Despres' Latest Mixed Reality Videos
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!
