I was given links to two great new machinima pieces a couple of days ago.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Hi8fPVNreg by Mescaline Tammas
This is Mescaline’s first SL video. Its a gorgeously shot and edited piece with music by Duran Duran. Mescaline is a film professional in the other life, and his skills certainly show.
The second video is http://myspacetv.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=26377542 by Juliet Heberle and Arabesque Choche, also known as Choucho. I honestly don’t know a whole lot about these folks, as this was referred to me by a 3rd party. One note of interest is that the vocals in the song are in Japanese, but played in reverse. Again, this information was referred so I can’t account to its accuracy 100% until I talk to the creators.
Its visually very appealing, though its rather slow and monotonous until about half-way through.The second half is both visually captivating and the music really picks up.
