New Pierce Portocarrero Machinima


<p><img id="image784" style="float: left" src="" alt="Game Over, a Second Life machinima piece by Pierce Portocarrero" title"Game Over, a Second Life machinima piece by Pierce Portocarrero" /><a href="">Second Life</a> resident Pierce Portocarrero, one of the virtual world&#8217;s most gifted creators of the in-world filmmaking art known as <a href="">machinima</a>, has been on hiatus of late. He <a href="">returns</a> this week with a new piece that&#8217;s even better than the ones I&#8217;ve seen before. Check out <a href="">Game Over</a>, which aired in-world as part of the latest monthly machinima festival run by <a href="">Alt-Zoom Studios</a>. Seemingly a parable of love in the age of self-replicating objects (or something like that), the short film features some truly creative character models, an excellently ambiguous plot and ending, and acting that&#8217;s conveyed very well through animations and completely without dialogue. It&#8217;s a really excellent piece, including in its camerawork and editing. All we need now is for credit rolls to come to machinima, so we&#8217;d know if it was Pierce doing all the work or whether there are other people who deserve some kudos as well. Whatever the case, it&#8217;s nice stuff, and we look forward to more.
