True Stories presents: Jorien van Nes and Femke Wolting’s fascinating insight into online virtual worlds. Second Life, World of Warcraft, Metaplace, U World – all virtual worlds where the user can create their own paradise, far removed from real life. People can create societies that range from the democratic to the dictatorial, have avatars that resemble their ideal and can engage in actions that their real life personality would never dream of doing, from cyber-sex to virtual crime. But who creates these worlds and are they the right people to be crafting idealised societies that pretend to address and solve the inadequacies of the real world?

The Internet TV premiere was:  june 2009, Metaworld2

.

The Netherlands TV premiere was: Thursday 30 july 2009, Nederland 2

Voor miljoenen mensen is het virtuele universum een plek die steeds meer vervlochten raakt met hun echte leven. De plek waar makers en spelers hun eigen paradijs kunnen creëren, ver verwijderd van de echte wereld; geheel naar eigen inzicht, variërend van democratie tot dictatuur. Hier leiden de virtuele inwoners een leven waarvan zij vroeger niet durfden te dromen; van warlord tot succesvol cybersex ondernemer.

Maar wie zijn de bedenkers van deze werelden en welke ideeën en ideologieën liggen eraan ten grondslag? Hoe gaat het bouwen van een virtueel utopia in zijn werk? Wat zijn de economische en politieke regels in de virtuele wereld? Is er persvrijheid? Hoe wordt er handel gedreven? Moeten de virtuele inwoners zich aan wetten houden, of zijn zij daar eindelijk helemaal vrij in? Zijn het echt ideale werelden zonder aardse beperkingen?

In deze documentaire gaan Femke Wolting en Jorien van Nes op zoek naar antwoorden op deze vragen.

Zij spreken de oprichters van de grootste virtuele werelden, waaronder Philip Rosedale van Second Life, Jae-Kyung Song van Lineage, Hilmar Veigar Petursson van EVE Online en Raph Koster van Metaplace over de ideeën achter hun werelden.

When Second Life founder and former Linden Lab CEO Philip Rosedale ( a.k.a. avatar Philip Linden) was in Amsterdam in september 2008, he gave a very inspiring lecture and intimate Q & A at the third EduverseSymposium at De Balie: ‘Your Virtual Future‘.

Watch a livestream video recording of this conversation with Philip Rosedale on the future of virtual worlds here:

And there is also a machinima video online (created by Chantal Harvey), shot at the mobile virtual auditorium of De Balie.

“Second Life is not a techno-elitist toy. This is something that’s empowering and meaningfull to a lot of people. And when I said people build Ferrari’s in SL, I only meant sadly that television has taught them to covet Ferrari’s. Not that they own them.” – (Philip Rosedale, Amsterdam sept. 23, 2008) – http://blip.tv/file/1455697 – From 05:09 on

You can make a ‘TEST-transmission-drive’ yourself in this TVerrari TESTosterona – Philip Rosendale edition: for only One Linden Dollar (L$ 1). Pick it up at Amsterdam sim. Play Media for a live-television-paint-job!
