These ‘Machinimatographers’ will present over fifty short films and discuss their work in front of a live global audience of viewers.
Audiences in Amsterdam can follow the MMIF event live, projected on a big screen in Club Karlsson at Keizersgracht, one of the most famous canals in Holland. Several participating machinimatographers will be present. Visitors can bring their own portable computers to interact with the show on the big screen. Free (wireless) internet and electricity is provided.
 Free entrance at Club Karlsson, however tickets are required. Reservations must be made via http://MMIF.org . The amount of tickets at the door is very limited! Full = FULL! 
 
      
This year MMIF collaborates with MetaMeets, a conference about 3D-internet and Virtual Worlds. MetaMeets 2011 will take place on the same dates and location as MMIF, but during day time.

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.

28 feb.: MMIF 2009 – MaMachinima International Festival

http://MMIF.org

Last days of ‘Dadamachinima’ expo Amsterdam ends with Machinima Festival

MMIF 2009

MMIF 2009

MaMachinima International Festival
28th february 2009 – Free entrance
PLANETART, Wibautstraat 150, Amsterdam (NL) + RastaViews sim (SL)

‘MMIF 2009′ is the first edition of an annual global film festival in cyberspace and simultaneously in Amsterdam (NL). In Amsterdam MMIF 2009 will happen at the very last day of the ‘Dadamachinima’ media-art exhibition by PLANETART about avant-garde videogame modification, started 18 December 2008.

The MMIF is initiated by the Dutch filmer Chantal Harvey. The MMIF is a celebration of machinima: a new cinematic art form, created with 3D virtual worlds and online computergames. All the actors (avatars) are individually operated real-time by real people while movie scenes are directed and recorded. On 3D web platforms like Second Life, directors can even build complete movie sets for relatively low costs. MMIF 2009 aims to bring machinima to a wider audience, online and offline.

Over forty short machinima films are screened at MMIF 2009, from all over the world. Machinima created wih all 3D web platforms and online games are welcome.

At the MaMachinima Theatre in Second Life, the artists and directors from many countries will be present in real time to talk about their creations. And to meet other machinimatographers and an international audience online.

The audience in Amsterdam can view the machinima films live via Second Life on a big screen at the auditorium of the PLANETART artspace in the former Volkskrantbuilding.

Free wireless internet and electricity provided for audience laptops.

‘Houston, we’ve got a griefer!’

We intercepted the following note from Linden Lab’s Research Department about an exciting research project from the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration:

NASA MMO

 

NASA Learning Technologies has issued a Request for Information (RFI):
Development of a NASA-based Massively Multiplayer Online Learning Game.
Here’s the URL:
procurement.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/eps/synopsis.cgi?acqid=128415
The deadline if 15 Feb 08 for the RFI, with an RFP likely in March.

NASA MMO

From ipp.gsfc.nasa.gov/mmo :NASA MMO website

“Virtual worlds with scientifically accurate simulations could permit learners to tinker with chemical reactions in living cells, practice operating and repairing expensive equipment, and experience microgravity – making it easier to grasp complex concepts and quickly transfer this understanding to practical problems”

So, will it be:

Just a small step for an avatar, but a giant leap for mankind?

Demonic assault

Just after closing time of the N.I.M.K. museum in Amsterdam (18:00 CET / SL 9 am PST) a gang of french speaking demons appeared in the :::RPG::: Park at the Resonance NoR sim in Second Life. One of them suddenly started shooting his gun at the passive, unarmed and naked avatars inside the ‘DO NOT FEED’ iron cage. Then they dissapeared quickly. Ad Breda and Eveline Schoonhoven were laying on the floor sedated for several minutes, before they revived.

Eveline Schoonhoven and Ad Breda after a demonic assault

A part of the log of the public chat channel, next to the iron cage:
