Radio Riel is pleased to announce two special broadcasts on Radio Riel Steampunk this weekend as part of a joint venture with the Second Life community of NeoVictoria in honor of the release of a new book on the art of machinima.

Sonicity Fitzroy, PhD, writer, and Lowe Runo, Machinimatographer and MAG and ProMag founder, have recently published their co‐authored book, “Machinima The Art and Practice of Virtual Filmmaking”, which includes input from many Second Life residents.

Everyone is welcome to join the fun on Friday and Saturday to help them celebrate this release. Both of these events will be broadcast on Radio Riel Steampunk. You can find the Second Life event and book sale information listed below in the party invitation and press release.

Hosts: Sonicity Fitzroy and Lowe Runo:

We appreciate all those involved in this project and we consider it a collaborative effort among numerous people inside SL as well as those looking in from the outside. This book is not intended to promote SL, but we seriously view it as a major platform for the creation of innovative machinima.

This is not the definitive voice in machinima, but a collective voice within the virtual filmmaking community that represents many perspectives. The machinima story will continue to evolve, and we are pleased to document this point in history, as well as to encourage so many to experiment with this medium through this book.”
