Fuschia Nightfire and Wolfie Moonshadow Make Beautiful Music Together

Fuschia Nightfire, also known as Nina Camplin in RL, is not only a talented designer and artist in both RL and SL, but she is an accomplished machninamist, as well. Among her many accomplishments in SL are sculptures and statues, and she built the beautiful **STARS** Dance Club in Second Life, a live music venue.

One of the most beautiful love songs currently on the airwaves is Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” The music video for his song is a stunningly elegant and creative dance of two lovers. Fuschia re-created this video in SL, set to “Thinking Out Loud” being sung by talented SL and RL live music performer Wolfie Moonshadow.

This collaboration of talents has resulted in one of the most beautiful machinimas I’ve seen to date. Set against the stunning backdrop of the beautiful **STARS** Dance Club, Fuschia and Wolfie have created something that is a delight and treat for your senses.

I’ve included both the link to Ed Sheeran’s original video, and to the machinima created by Fuschia and Wolfie.

Here is Fuschia’s machinima:

Machinima In Second Life

One of the things in Second Life that fascinates me the most is machinima.

Machinima is the use of real-time computer graphics engines to create a cinematic production. Most often video games are used to generate the computer animation, such as Second Life. Machinimists use external software and 3-D mouse to capture gameplay in Second Life, and then edit it, add music and effects much like regular videographers do.

Second Life’s Facebook page posted a machinima that is extremely well done. I love the effects. I thought I would post it here for you to enjoy!

Frisland in Winter

I saw a link to this video on Facebook, and decided I needed to post about this beautiful place in SL. This place is exquisite.

Here is some information on Frisland given in the notecard you receive upon landing:

“This is an open place for all ppl [sic] that love to relax in a beautiful environment on a sim where time stands still. Frisland was designed for photographers and explorers based upon the idea of a phantom island in the North Atlantic that appeared on lots of maps during the 16th and 17th centuries. We want to share this place with you but there are a few rules to follow:

1. Frisland is a moderate sim also frequented by kids and families. So please: NO nudity and NO obvious sexual activities. We accept your RP like D/s but we want you to make your leashes invisible and wear proper clothes that are acceptable for a sim like ours.

2. NO rudeness, NO violence, NO weapons. Treat other ppl [sic] on the sim with respect and enjoy a relaxed talk with them as long as they want. Don’t molest or harass them. Some ppl [sic] just come over to enjoy the silence and peace on Frisland.

3. As a member of the Frisland Group you can rez here. This permission is only for rezzing poses or probs to take a pic, NOT for abusing the sim as a playground or sandbox! If you want to build or unpack your purchases, please use the search to find appropriate places. Also, please do not rez cars or motorbikes or any modern stuff that doesn’t fit Frisland.

if you want to join the group, it costs a small fee of 150 L$ that helps us to keep running the sim 🙂 ”

Here is the video I saw that first made me take notice of this beautiful, peaceful place. This is machinima done by a professional; way better than I could ever hope to do. It was well done, and so I thought I’d share with you. Enjoy, and visit this location if you’d like to see it in person.
