Thanks for the heads-up. You're right--that's incredible--and incredibly well done.



OMG... I have such rave words for this... this is one of ze finest pieces of Second Life machinima I've seen to date! The editing, the pacing, the raw narrative I can relate to of coming into Second Life and finding yourself so fully immersed, and even an alternate introductory sequence (no Orientation Island!?) with the metallic-coated avatar of Molotov Alva. Kudos to Douglas Gayeton and crew!

I am especially pleased to observe the contributions of Orhalla Zander, founder of the Calleta Infohub. He's come a long way from his hobo roots, and now... apparently he's the Hobo King (compleat with new skin?!) in future episodes of this work! 6 more to go too! Second Life... where a hobo can be a hobo king — and more than that, don't typecast him! His texturing skills are rather versatile.

Head to http://www.molotovalva.com to learn more!

Gosh, so good, so good. I really feel a lot of emotion from this.

Thanx for showcasing this, Hamlet... I can't wait 'til the next eps!


In freakin credible. Wow.


What I want to know, and I know this has been posted elsewhere, but is this the same Molotov from the circuit books?


Click the link for a high quality version of this one.

What I wanna know is how did he get the video of him walking face on towards the camera?


A second camera person. That's the least impressive bit of the whole thing.

Alastair Chamerberlin

D'oh...silly me. I guess I am spending too much time on my own in there trying to figure things out. Totally never even occured to me that another camera person would be involved. I was also impressed by the overall feel of the piece.


Awww.. I really wanted to watch it but it says it's private :-(
