In just over a month it will be a year since the release of my sci-fi machinima, STÖMOL. Since a big part of my motivation for creating the movie was to promote and celebrate Second Life, building an exhibition for SL18B – the celebration of SL’s 18th birthday, which opened yesterday – seemed like an excellent idea to me.
STÖMOL: The Exhibition can be visited here. It’s right in front of the SL18B welcome area. You’ll find information about the locations used in the movie, an exhibition of the trading card art created for the merchandise, and a complete set from the film to explore. Or you can just kick back and watch the movie itself in the mini cinema. Have a hunt around with your cam whilst you’re there: super-sleuths will find a hidden link to some deleted clips from STÖMOL, and there’s even a concealed clue about the machinima I’m working on right now.
There’s a free piece of merch to pick up at the exhibition too: a whole-cast life-size cut-out. On display also are some of the individual cut-outs created last year (and, by the way, there are still a few left of these at my store). You can also have an up-close look at the Sonic Rover flying car used by Stömol in the movie.
If you’re visiting using an EEP viewer, don’t forget to enable the shared environment. I’ve used the same dystopian lighting for the exhibition that I used in the film.
I was delighted to see the exhibition featured in yesterday’s special Lab Gab episode covering SL18B – thank you Strawberry!
I’ll be hanging out at the exhibition over the next few days when I’m in SL so, if you see me there, feel free to come and chat 🙂
UPDATE. If you missed the exhibition, check out below a video tour I made of it.
