I am all for re-enactment but I wish people would just stop glorifying the whole osama thing. Personally it sickens me.


I received several requests to make Osama av's, to which I've said no to. But, incidentally, the sculpted talking Obama sculpted face is still available at Very Important Pixels http://www.flickr.com/photos/inacentaurdump/2539960491/

Disclosure - yes, this was used on an mShakespeare live theatrical April Fools Super Spoofhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/ic-beauties/3478137592/


i find the best sl-3D-osama-dramatization was made by naxos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5683597426

as a military expert i have to say the SEAL and the building, costumes, avatars, props, etc. come very close to reality.

and then the proof it all was real and not only us-propaganda: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5686052257

Chinese news have been doing this for a few years. One of my absolute favorites was Tiger Woods when he crashed his car as his wife was chasing him with a golf club for cheating on her.

As for OBL - as per ColeMarie's feelings, I think there's a balance between re-enacting something and showing something that may be in too much detail for evening news. I'm glad that MSNBC was able to restrain themselves in a way that most CSI & CSI knock-off shows are not. While the result may look quirky, I think it's a better alternative that more realistically showing the OBL hit-job on the news.

I wonder how much of this is done in-house? An organization that has spent tens of thousands of dollars on "professional" software a few short years ago might be less than receptive to the fact that a free-to-play virtual world provides better results.


I saw this broadcast and was thinking the same thing. CNN had an even worse animation. Even though Second Life is right under everyone's nose, the mainstream still doesn't realize its potential.


Good article.
