28 feb.: MMIF 2009 – MaMachinima International Festival

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

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 Learning Technologies has issued a Request for Information (RFI):
Development of a NASA-based Massively Multiplayer Online Learning Game.
Here’s the URL:
The deadline if 15 Feb 08 for the RFI, with an RFP likely in March.


From :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?


Holidays: ‘DO NOT FEED’ Exhibition continues online

Because of the holidays, the N.I.M.K. museum in Amsterdam is closed. It will reopen januari 8th until februari 3rd 2008 . But the virtual part of the ‘DO NOT FEED’ (Meta.Live.Nu presents DFM RTV INT) installation continues online 24/7!  In the RPG Park, at the Resonance NoR sim, in Second Life.

We are planning a Second Opening Party, friday january 11th 2008. This will be in the Video Vortex.2 exhibition at N.I.M.K. and also simultaniously online in the metaverse. So you are very welcome to visit the physical party as well as the virtual party for drinks and meeting people!


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.

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

Video: Caged nudist party

Saturday december 8th at the ‘DO NOT FEED’ (‘Meta.Live.NU presents DFM RTV‘) exhibit in the RPG park at the Resonance NoR sim in Second Life, suddenly a crazy unexpected spontaneous nudist party happened. Avatar strangers somehow managed to join the already naked Ad Breda and Eveline Schoonhoven inside the Homo SapienSL cage until it was almost full.

Machinima artist Chantal Harvey made a video impression.
