July has arrived... and things are starting to heat up for the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA). This month, there are tons of exciting activities and updates as the LEA community brings you two fun events: Month of Machinima and the LEA Avatar Art Games.
Watch July’s video finalists in a special Month of Machinima screening event on July 6 at 10 a.m. (Pacific). Visit now >>
Produced by the LEA in partnership with the Second Life community, the Month of Machinima (MoM) event is a monthly screening of the best of Second Life machinima. This event, which began in May, continues to accept submissions each month to be considered for the next month’s screening.
Whether you are an aspiring or established machinima artist — or someone who just enjoys watching videos — MoM offers an awesome viewing experience for those who enjoy this now-established creative art form. These videos get better each month -- and word is that July’s are among the best ever! See this month’s submissions debut July 6 at 10 a.m. in the LEA Theater. Don’t forget the popcorn!
About LEA Avatar Art Games
If you enjoy those intense -- and often hilarious -- televised human-obstacle games, such as “Wipeout” or “Takeshi’s Castle/MXC,” then you won’t want to miss the live Avatar Art Games event each Monday at 4 p.m. (Pacific). Watch as participants run through the obstacle course and the audience tries their hardest to to slow them down! Check out the sign-up sheet on Thursdays for contestants and audience participants.
