Wow, that's so cool Ryan! I would totally love a simboard, it looks like so much fun!

I must say, I really like how you have improved the intro of your video, it is more concise and lacking of beeps. I also like how you have arranged your on screen windows, a lot less clutter and more visual space.

Great job! It looks like you are having fun and staying safe!

Well, actually, it is a bit more than just a screen recording. It has an intro and it shows that passion and effort was put into its development. His work is much like the very early machinima, from what I have read. Basically, it was recorded gameplay with an intro, check out the section Precedent in this Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machinima#Precedent

Also, much SL machinima out there consists of just a screen recording usually set to music. It's kinda like a home movie vs Hollywood productions at times, some machinima is really cool to the person making it and some of it is really cool to a lot of other persons as well. Is it machinima though? Well, if we use the Wikipedia definition of machinima, 'the use of real-time 3D computer graphics rendering engines to create a cinematic production,' then we must ask, what is a cinematic production?

This article, http://ifsstech.wordpress.com/2009/09/05/a-definition-of-cinema/, defines cinema as ‘the art of the moving image’.

So, at its heart, machinima is basically a screen recording made to show to others. Its quality however, like all art, is up to taste and perception, discussion and debate.
