The first Linden Endowment of the Arts (LEA)-backed event will be kicking-off in May. The Month of Machinima (MoM) is set to be a rolling event, and one which will highlight some outstanding talent within Second Life.
Additionally, MoM has a dedicated YouTube account which will feature a playlist of machinimas submitted for the May event can be viewed after the opening ceremony. Currently, a short promotional video is available on the account.
For those more interested in LEA, there is an in-world Group with open enrolment available and where news of LEA-related events as well as news and other information can be obtained.
MoM is undoubtedly a good move on LL’s part, and I personally hope that the level of support shown will now trail off over time, but that it will continue to gain full and proper public exposure via the Lab as it rolls forward over time.
