  Documentary Seeks ‘Second Life’ Subjects  
Posted 2006-04-11 by Tony Walsh
Anders von Reis Crooks of Robo Studios is looking for subjects for a planned documentary about the intersection between the real world and Second Life's virtual economy:

"Second Life is well known for its stock market, players making real life income in game, and for the emerging companies selling real life items for in game credits. Our intention is to contact the main players in this growth industry, and really allow them to have a free form discussion with us about their businesses and how they see this industry growing and going. We do not intend to take 'a stand' on any of the issues, but rather to take an informative and educational approach."

Candidates should be passionate about Second Life, preferrably run their own business and/or regularly exchange real and virtual currency. All interview footage will be captured in-world, so one's real geographical location is irrelevant. Von Reis Crooks can be contacted via his studio's web site.

Another documentary film about Second Life is currently in production. Ideal World will focus on fashionista Nephilaine Protagonist, but involves an impressively diverse range of interview subjects. I don't know if I'll make the final cut, but I sat down with filmmaker Brad Henderson earlier this year to share my viewpoint of Second Life's culture, politics, and economy.
