Description

This year, and for the first time, the SLACTIONS Steering Committee included a day devoted to Machinima in the conference program. The SLACTIONS 2012 Machinima Festival is a Machinima competition included on the SLACTIONS 2012 Research conference on virtual worlds. The RL/SL conference will happen between 15 November 2012 and 17 November 2012. The SLACTIONS 2012 Machinima Festival and awards ceremony will be on 15 November 2012. The SLACTIONS 2012 Machinima Festival agree, approve and promote the free use of imagination. According to SLACTIONS 2012, the Machinima Festival will have a follow-up support and appreciation of work done this year as well as the Vintage category (classics from previous years).

Imagination as a concept is a well-known phenomenon whereby a person creates something new under some conditions, and can be associated with creativity. For many, it is intertwined with passion and commitment. The metaverse and machinima are innovations, but what about creativity? It lives inside you.

Imagine an Universe where everyone can make choices, live one's dream and share one's passion. For innovation to flourish, the SLACTIONS 2012 Machinima Festival created an environment for fostering creativity; bringing together multi-talented groups of people who work together in close collaboration - exchanging knowledge and ideas, and shaping the path towards the future with their present and past accomplishments and works.

By deciding to submit one's works, the path leads to this moment of the battle between a multitude of creators and the chance to share that experience with them. Hundreds of thousands of people can watch it. Why so many? Because it all happens in one universe, where what matters most is the emergent and evolving experience. Because in the Universe all artistry matters and imagination and creativity have an important impact.

Imagine being in the right place at the right time and being able to touch the lives of thousands of people, around the world.

Welcome to SLACTIONS 2012. The imagination is yours.

"The metaverse is emerging, through the increasing use of virtual world technologies that act as platforms for end-users to create, develop, and interact, expanding the realm of human cooperation, interaction, and creativity. The conference focus is scientific research on applications and developments of these metaverse platforms: Habbo Hotel, IMVU, Second Life, OpenSimulator, Open Croquet, Activeworlds, Project Wonderland, and others, including MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft, and virtual worlds based on social networks, such as *-ville and others, providing a forum for the research community to present and discuss innovative approaches, techniques, processes, and research results."

GREAT GATSBY Trailer (2012) Movie HD

GREAT GATSBY Trailer (2012) Movie HD

From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker will create his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. "The Great Gatsby" follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles..

Dragon Eyes Official Trailer #1 - Jean-Claude Van Damme, Peter Weller Movie (2012) HD

Dragon Eyes Official Trailer #1 - Jean-Claude Van Damme, Peter Weller Movie (2012) HD

Welcome to St. Jude, a town where rival gangs rule the streets, where the chief of police is a cold-blooded killer, and where citizens have learned to keep their heads down. Then comes out-of-towner Ryan Hong. His vintage car attracts attention. His unbelievable marital arts skills cause a sensation. Sensing a human weapon, the rival gangs bid for Hong's allegiance. But Hong is committed to honoring an old promise to a mentor he met in prison: that he will "do good" wherever possible. With a lethal combination of street smarts and martial arts, Hong vows to lift St. Jude's citizens out of fear... even if he must turn into a one-man army to do it.

This is very interest reading. I work close with Amazon in some projects and i must say they are thinking very different in the Movie and Book publishing style. They just want to do it their own way. I'm pretty sure they will acomplishe that goal. Why?

Because it works. Oh and not to forget, they have the money to force it through ;-) @safegaard

dolittlesaymuch's comment, May 22, 2012 10:55 AM
I've been involved with professional writers and writers groups for years, and I can guarantee that these changes are already sweeping the industry. While the new paradigm is still in flux, we already see signs of it settling into a very beneficial state--beneficial for writers and readers alike. New York's "Big 6" publishers no longer dictate which and what type of new books hit the market. And as a result, so much of the "formula fiction" that has bored this reader for far too long will slowly disappear from the mainstream radar.
