The Second Life 48 Hour Film Project

Past weekend several Second Life teams submitted their films to the 48 Hour Film Project.
All of the films that were submitted will screen on January 16th and 17th, in Second Life's New Globe Theatre and at 5.00 PM SLT. The films will play simultaneously at both venues.
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours. On Friday night, everyone gets a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in a movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete.
This is the main idea and in 2007, 30.000 filmmakers made films in 55 cities around the world in RL.
This event, with the same brain-twisters has come to the virtual world and the winner will also, besides receiving an interesting amount, be screened at Filmapalooza, a RL event, at the film festival Cinequest in San Jose, California.

This years teams are:

DreamTeam, Dnali Anabuki
The Good Griefers, Cecil Hirvi
GT SLAR, Ashang Jinn
The LifeFactory, LifeFactory Writer
The Machinimatrix, June Brenner
MetaverseTV, Robustus Hax
Team CADE, Sweeny Todd
Team Classy, Lucinda Obviate
Team Harvey, Chantal Harvey
Team Titatovernaar, Titatovernaar Balder
The Vesuvius Group, Rhiannon Chatnoir
Wildcuts, Orpheus Kurosawa

This article is maybe late for you who were interested to compete, but is maybe something to keep in mind for next year's competition. And it will always be interesting to see what those contestants can do in 48 hours with a machinima in a virtual world.
It is not too late to see the last screen at the New Globe Theatre.
