Thanksgiving Dinner at Aisling's home

Thanksgiving Dinner at Aisling’s home

Join us today, Monday 24th November at 2pm SLT on the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams as we celebrate Thanksgiving with a special meal and conversation – and an exciting announcement!

This year, we’ve invited some of the people with roles to play behind the camera – Aisling Sinclair, our director, Wildstar Beaumont, our photographer, and LaPiscean Liberty, owner of SLArtist and Aview TV, two of the channels that screen Designing Worlds. They will be talking about their many projects and the fun things they have been doing.

And we are also joined by Elizabeth Tinsley, the organiser of Fantasy Faire, who has some very exciting news about the Fantasy Faire calendar which – very shortly – you’ll be able to obtain in Second Life – and in real life too – with profits going to support Relay for Life in Second Life. And here is one of the THREE choices of covers that you can have for your calendar!

Aisling hosts the event in her beautiful new home, designed by Pamela Galli of La Galleria – and Pamela also supplied the amazing dining table too!

Also this week’s photographs are very special; as fans of the Prim Perfect Jigsaw will already know, rather than sending Wildstar to photograph a location this week, we asked him to choose his favourite photographs from all the years that he has been taking pictures for the show … What has he chosen? You’ll have to watch the show to find out – but here’s a sneak peek!

Join us today – it’s going to be a terrific show!

Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist or on Treet – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site at http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds, on the SLArtist.com channel,  the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we find out all about an amazing Second Life tool called Rescene (developed by Logan Bauer of  Arctic Greenhouse) – is now on the web.

Logan originally developed ReScene as a result of a hunt game he created, but then he realised that it could be used for tours and games, and, perhaps above all, for film-making. We certainly agreed – Rescene played a crucial part in staging The Blackened Mirror.

We’ll talk to Logan about how Rescene works, and then we look at Rescene in work, with the aid of Terra Volitant who was Rescene Director for The Blackened Mirror. There are samples of different projects – including a test run of a mermaid ballet that is a work in progress.

And there’s a very special treat for all Blackened Mirror fans as we preview a Director’s commentary of Episode 1 of Season 2, explaining how we made the show.
