MaMachinima International Festival

Web live + LEA Theatre (SL™) + Club Karlsson, Amsterdam (NL)
 ‘MMIF 2011′ is the third edition of an annual film festival in 3D cyberspace with an interactive cinema screening in physical space (‘RL’). Audiences can follow some of the MMIF happenings live via the web.
The MMIF is a celebration of Machinima: films created in virtual worlds and video games. On 3D Internet platforms like Second Life® for instance, any kind of movie set can be built at very low cost. The MMIF aims to bring Machinima, a new cinematic art form, to a wider audience. Films by professional machinima producers and by those who are just starting out will be screened at MMIF 2011. Machinima directors and avatar actors from all over the world are present in real time at the virtual theatre in SL. 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.
The MMIF is a volunteer-run, non-profit collaboration of MaMachinima with Club KarlssonMetaMeetsMeta.Live.Nu, PLANETART, AviewTV, Ystreams.TV, MetaMixTV, Gallery Fermate and many other volunteers. Special thanks to NIMkDe Balie and Bellissima TV.

1 nov.: Physical Virtuality: “What’s the weight of an avatar?”

Humans FEEL  the presence  of  real  avatars  in a  cross-world  interactive  seesaw  installation, connecting  virtual  life  to  our  physical  world.

On saturday the 1st of november, visitors of the NEMO Science Center in Amsterdam will be physically connected to inhabitants of the virtual world Second Life through an intervirtual balancing plateau.

The total weight of avatars standing on the virtual side of the plateau will be calculated and processed along with the weight of all people standing on the physical side of the plateau. This outcome will trigger the synchronised real-time movement of both the hydraulic powered and script controlled side of the plateau, resulting in an experience of indirect physical contact between real and virtual beings.

A two way videoprojection will visually connect the virtual and real-life participants standing on the installation.

Physical location: Science Center NEMO, Oosterdok 2, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Virtual location: Brooklyn is Watching project space in Second Life. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Popcha/66/144/22

Saturday 1st of november 2008
19:00 – 00:00 CET (= SL 11 am 3 pm PST)

‘Meta.Live.NU presents DFM RTV INT’

A conceptual information-art project (RL) during the exhibition ‘Video Vortex.2”
Live december 7th till 23rd 2007 + Also live january 7th till february 3rd 2008

This is a live interface experiment between virtual life (‘VL’) and physical life (‘PL’). This exhibition is 24/7 accessible for the public through the metaverse of Second Life AND at certain timeslots also in Amsterdam, at the Netherlands Media Art Institute (NIMK-MonteVideo) . You can hear and see sounds and images from the live radiotelevision station run by an international collective of media-artists and even meet them: DFM RTV INT

Eveline Schoonhoven and Ad Breda, (the caged avatars) are on two public computer terminals in a physical public exhibition space in the Netherlands Media Art Institute. This is part of a larger media-art exhibition called ‘Video Vortex.2’. The SL viewers of Eveline Schoonhoven and Ad Breda are projected ‘lifesize’ on two walls (about 3 x 4 meters videobeam projections). These two avatar characters were exclusively created for this exhibition.

Physical visitors in the RL Amsterdam exhibition come and go, some of them go explore the SL interface with the provided keyboard & mouse in the center of the room others just watch the screens. At certain moments there will be no visitors at all, so at those times Eveline Schoonhoven and Ad Breda are unoperated avatars and will not react. The physical exhibition is open fro the public tuesday-saturdays 13:00-18:00 CET (SL 4 am – 9 a PST). Entrance is 3.- euro’s. The Second Life exhibition is open 24/7 during this period and free entrance.

The visiting people “in” the avatar often have no clue whats going on, and only find out who they are on screens, when they move or chat and then can explore what situation they are in. Most people will only spend a few minutes operating an avatar, others maybe longer. You are very welcome to interact with them.

Sounds and voice chat are audible in the physical exhibition space over a soundsystem with each videobeam projection but they can not reply with voice, as there are no microphones with the public computer terminals.

Media.Live.Nu is in continious creative development and under permanent construction. So things will change, special events can happen and more info will be added. Please refresh the website http://meta.live.nu for updates and please pick up a new notecard from time to time. Please join the SL group ‘Meta.Live.Nu’ for (last minute) info, news and other communications on events from the ‘interactive virtual live media lab’ Meta.Live.NU

Thank you for your attention,

Ze Moo
