UPDATED: Many Important News from LEA

It is now already a whole year that I joined the the LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) Committee. It was actually Bryn Oh who encouraged me to join with some warm words which where about as: "Come and join if you want to do much unpaid work supporting the arts and to be hated by everyone for that." There was a grain of truth in it but I like it still to support artists with their creative work when it comes to land management, organisation and advertising. I love to see the works growing. And it makes me a bit proud seeing the good results. Round 5 of the Artists in Residence ended yesterday and all sims has been cleaned up.

Machinima Obstacles

Filmimg at LEA18

Marx Catteneo for example did a great job in creating a space for filming and to take machinima. See here the latest work, taken at the closing event. This is my first role in a machinima and I think I am a nice corpse ;)

We regularly talked about his obstacles in his work and I am grateful that he summarized his experiences in a manifesto which should be be interesting for all creators in Second Life.  Read the manifesto here: http://justpaste.it/MachinimaManifesto

The next Round at LEA starts in February and if you think LEA is in holiday, you are totally wrong. Did I say that all sims are cleaned up?  Well, not entirely... One small sim of indomitable residents still holds out against the invadors. Moving Islands at LEA20 is still up. I blogged it here. Eupalinos Ugajin and Ole Etzel will held for the month of January a photography and machinima project:


January 2014 at "Moving Islands"

The Plan
Mr. Bones will sing you the art of Machinima: 11th January 2014, 12PM (Noon) SLT

The Mission
Explore "Moving islands" at LEA20. Reflect on the topic "In the belly of the Whale". Reflect harder! Now do us a film, a picture or a photo story at LEA20. Wear own builds or use existing ones from the sim, create a short photo story or a 120 minute epic film, sing, shout or shoot a harpoon into the last whale! Perhaps you may decide to feel like being in any special kind of belly or to produce your work in that special Cadavre Exquis look? Special russian dictator bellies floating through your mind? NOW you are ready to go! Give us the honor and donate a work to our interactive extravaganza!
All artworks entered will be shown on whale.boxfolio.com/ and also at the end of January for a party in SL. Stay in touch for more infos about the event and special rewards!
PS: "Ve haf vays of making you speak viz ze German accent, ja?"

So come and tell your own story of the whale in photos or a machinima. And great coincidence, I can help out with German accent if needed ;)


Doesn't that look boring? Place your art to make it nice!

LEA20 will not be the only sim with projects for the month of January.  LEA has just begun the Interim Project curated by Secret Rage:

LEA has just begun the Interim Project that will continue until January 31st  when the Round 6 land grants will take place. Along with 15 different artists/art groups that are on 15 of the sims...2 sims are called Flash Mob, which I am curating. It is a sort of spur of the moment immediate art show. This is my request for artworks from those of you who would like to participate in it. To do so~ you may choose either 1 or 2 or your artworks (or a collection) that has a total prim count of no more than 200 prim. Then~ as soon as you send it to me (providing i am online at that moment) your pieces will be added to the collection on display immediately... it will continue to grow for as long as the 30000 prim hold out...so please! Start sending me pieces! Size does not matter for the most part~ so larger pieces are ok~but please not full sim sized pieces! :)  For the times when i am NOT online..it may be best to send it in a box called Flash Mob and include your name. One thing to keep in mind: this is a moderate sim so use your best judgement.
                       Thankssssss!!! Secret Rage"
The works will be shown at LEA26 and LEA27 and hurry! Otherwise I will come up with my art collection ;)
