Attention all film fanatics in the virtual world! If you’re in the mood to see some great machinima filmed in Second Life, then c’mon down to the LEA Theater today at 10:00 a.m. SLT to see the winning selections in the inaugural Month of Machinima (MoM) event, presented by the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA).

To help kick off the event, Linden Lab’s Senior Director, User Experience Rhett Linden and the LEA board will be in attendance to talk about the arts in Second Life, the 13 films selected for the May event, and what’s next for the LEA’s community events and installations.

Seating for the MoM event is conveniently located near each of the theater’s four entrances: More about MoM and the LEA
The objective of MoM is to promote Second Life machinima, encourage the creation of new work, and showcase existing work to the community and beyond. It serves as an opportunity to introduce Residents to the machinima art form and to support the machinima community to continue to create Second Life films for everyone to enjoy. MoM will be a recurring monthly event with juried screenings of community-created machinima so you can participate and view new films every month.

Also, the LEA Information group is open to the public—feel free to join to learn more about the organization’s future events. You can pick up information in the MoM info boxes at the LEA Theater and infohub.

Now’s the Time for June Submissions
The next deadline for machinima submissions is May 10 for the June MoM. The theme is Mixed Reality. Maximum run-time is six (6) minutes (SL machinima has to be included in your mix). Interested in participating? You can learn more about MoM and apply to have your machinima included in the event here. Films that have already been submitted, but not selected for a previous MoM, will be eligible for consideration in future events if they adhere to the theme, length restrictions, and other requirements.

Looking forward to a great event!
