What it means to be in SL

Justin Bovington showed the above 3 short machinima clips at Second Life Community Convention (SLCC) 2006. As he mentions in the intro Rivers Run Red spent 6 months working on getting the story right and it shows. These 3 short films capture the essence of what it means to be in SL and do a great job in translating Your World. Your Imagination.

Robert Holden’s piece on Rivers Run Red gives a flavor for how Justin and his team continue to reinvent themselves. People who spend time in SL come to realize that it is not about the technology but what we do with it. If you are interesting in getting involved in SLCC 2007 checkout their weblog.
