In this episode of Designing Worlds, we visit the home of Misfits Dance and Performing Arts and talk to their founder, JenzZa Misfit.

Over the past years JenzZa and her troupe have produced consistently impressive dance performances at major events such as One Billion Rising and Fantasy Faire.

We discover what inspires JenzZa and how she brings her inspiration to life, with some in-depth looks at how she creates the dances, alongside plenty of examples of finished shows – although sadly, due to copyright reasons, we’re not able to include the original music.

In the most recent Designing Worlds, we’re looking at a new development in Second Life – Animesh! It allows the animation of mesh objects that are separate from an avatar, but with many of the same characteristics.

DW393 – Animesh from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

In the show, we ask what Animesh actually is, and Vir Linden, from Linden Lab, gives us an in-depth interview with detailed information about the whole animesh project, and answers creators’ questions. In addition, meet a selection of animesh creators including Carrie Tatsu, Aki Shichiroji and scripter Medhue Simoni.

In this week’s Designing Worlds, we’re revisiting a popular show from the past, as we tour the Mainland by podcar to discover some hidden beauties.

The show is available on Vimeo at: https://vimeo.com/110869566 or SLArtist at: https://www.slartist.com/designing-worlds-dw-255-%e2%80%93-podcar-tours_0848d012c.html

Or watch it here!

You can also join the special Watch Party (at 2pm SLT on Monday 4th March) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

Yavanna’s podcars will be familiar to those of you who’ve visited the Second Life Birthday events, and we’ve talked to her before about the tours she has created – but this time we’re going to be trying out some of her mainland tours for ourselves, with Yavanna as our expert guide!

We actually try out three tours: the first taking us to Sansara Seas and Rivers, one of nine tours available from Yavanna’s podcar hub on the Sansara continent; a fascinating tour on the little-visited teen grid (where the podcar turns into a ski lift – and then grows a ski to take us back down the mountain!); and a trip round the islands of north western Maebaleia on the Southern Nautilus tour, one of two tours on the Maebaleia or Datori continent. And we also take a look at a fascinating railcar tour on the Heterocera continent!

Yavanna is a keen proponent of the mainland and she shares with us some of the extraordinary creations you can see on her tours, and learn more about the work that not only residents have done, but also that Linden Lab has done – and continues to do – in making the mainland an unexpectedly fascinating – and often beautiful – place to visit. And to help you discover more, you’ll find maps at each starting location that will help you discover further tours to try.

Join us today – for a show that will really open your eyes to the extraordinary Mainland!

In this week’s Designing Worlds, we visited the wonderful 24 hour event that was One Billion Rising 2019.

DW392 – One Billion Rising in Second Life 2019 from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

On February 14, 2019, women and men in Second Life joined people across the world to Rise as a show of unity, individual strength, and the need for change. The event featured a four-region stage where 200 people could dance together, surrounded by an area of art installations and informational exhibits.

This year the One Billion Rising event continued last year’s theme – we RISE in Solidarity Against the Exploitation of Women in a world where governments and leaders seem to be increasingly anti-women. And we also had a special tribute to the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureates – Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad – for their work against sexual violence as a weapon of war.

As in previous years, we asked a variety of performers to play over the 24-hour period, which let people all over the world attend the event no matter their timezone. The regions had a General maturity rating to allow all residents an opportunity to participate.

This programme documents OBR in SL 2019 and includes interviews with leading contributors and co-creators.
