Firstly we visit the Linden Portal Park, all decked out for Halloween, to take a look at the always popular Halloween ride created by Linden Lab. And Saffia met Vee Tammas, one of the 2018-2019 Team Diabetes Coordinators, to talk about their special Scare Me Silly event, running from 19th till 27th October.

Then it’s off to the fantastic Octoberville, which has a very special introduction this year, and loads of scary stuff to explore – and an amazing hunt to learn about.

And finally, we visit the beautiful and very scary Maze which is this year’s Halloween location at Calas Galadhon.

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 8th October for Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams in Second Life, as we revisit a popular show from the past.

This wasn’t meant to happen … but unfortunately, we had a major technical issue (Saffia’s headset died) and we weren’t able to film.

But we have a great few shows coming up …

October 15th – Halloween Places
October 22nd – Is Original Mesh a Big Deal?
October 29th – A Ghostly Halloween Tale – with a special story by Judith Cullen

So for today … we invite you to explore Arkansas Heritage – a show from back in 2011 which explored a fascinating series of builds created by Painter Meriman for Arkansas State University.

We explored a really fascinating social history project, learning not only about Johnny Cash’s boyhood home, but also about the New Deal community of Dyess and the Southern Tenant Farmers Union (which now houses the Southern Tenant Famers Museum).

You can join our viewing party in our studio on Garden of Dreams, or watch it at home!

The latest episode of this season of Designing Worlds – the first episode of our autumn/fall season, where we take a look at the story behind ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES, the 15-minute machinima produced by Caledonia Skytower, Honey Heart and our very own Elrik Merlin, is now on the web!

DW379 – The Making of ‘Arrivals & Departures’ from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

Saffia Widdershins and guest co-host Corwyn Allen talk to the film-makers about how the production came about and how it was made, in the special theatre created by Honey Heart for the premiere; and we talk to Marcus Inkpen of in-world creators The Looking Glass who produced the build, Erstwhile Station, in which the story is set.

ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES is a 15-minute machinima shot in Second Life®, based on a short story written as part of Fantasy Faire 2018, the tenth annual virtual world-based fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society.

ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES presents a glimpse into two individual journeys that are brought together and shared one last time, in a story set in a vibrant, steampunk-inspired, fantasy environment. As the action transitions from a public encounter into a more personal, private exchange, the film highlights the vital importance of storytelling, harking back to an earlier time when tales were woven into a verbal tradition that was handed down by word of mouth.

Though the word is never uttered in the film, it addresses aspects of our attitudes towards death. Interwoven within is a reminder that while those who leave us pass beyond our reach, we may continue to carry them within us, breathing life into their passions and ideals, by teaching what we have learned from them, and inspiring others.

The programme includes the complete film, and a slideshow of production shots plus images from the premiere, taken by Wildstar Beaumont.
