Press Release for The Drax Files: World Makers
The Drax Files: World Makers, by Draxtor Depres, will be a monthly show on YouTube examining the creative people behind the avatars who continue to move the virtual world of Second Life forward with their passion and persistence.
Mixed reality interviews form the basis of very personal stories that profile designers, game-makers, role-players and fashion aficionados, musicians, artists and social-issue activists: for these dedicated residents the avatar is not just a separate pixelated entity, but a true extension of their identity with which they navigate the digital space.
The show will utilize real-life footage and Skype interviews as well as machinima from within Second Life and feature a range of creators from self-taught hobbyists to dedicated pros from all walks of life, from all over the world, cutting across gender, ethnic and generational divides.
This is a world solely made and nourished by its residents – therefore truly only their imagination can be the limit!
I had the honor of having a five second guest appearance on the first edition of The Drax Files World Makers. It is about the talented man behind the Straylight sim and Botanical store, Kriss Lehmann. You’ll also get a glimpse of his beautiful and talented wife, Shai Delacroix, whom he met in Second Life.
Here’s the link to the video on youtube: http://youtu.be/Gbu2HN_aY7w
I couldn’t help sharing one of the pictures that Drax sent me. It is an outtake from when I was shooting my part with both him and Kriss. All three of us were cracking up on skype and saying goofy things to each other inworld so it popped up on the chat bubbles. Drax happened to catch Kriss at exactly the right moment in the shot below, LOL!
Look out for more episodes of The Drax Files coming soon. I think it’ll be a really eye opening and interesting series showing a positive side of Second Life and its talented residents. If you become a fan of the series, like I am, you can pick up some official show merchandise on the marketplace at this link.
Have a great weekend!
