The Lindens made a post in the Second Life™ blog asking residents to make videos about the meaning of SL. To get answers rolling, they have included some videos:
Xiola Linden is also the author of the post requesting the videos.
There are 6 videos on the blog page. See: The “What Second Life Means to Me” Video Share Project.
I think Torley wins hands down on use of color.
You may have already seen Draxtor’s video, if you follow him.
Kaya Angel is new to me. The manor is awesome.
Gentle Heron is about helping people with disabilities.
What will you say SL means to you?
If you have not been into making video in SL, look at the two pieces of software Xiola mentions; Camtasia or Fraps. Both are retail versions with free trials. Camasia is US$299, but that includes video editing. FRAPS is US$37, but it is only an image/video capture tool. One could use Adobe’s Premiere Elements (US$120) for video editing.
There are free capture and editing tools. To learn more Google on: second Life machinima tutorial.
