Another Hazlitt machinima! Lucky to be invited into yet another new world Vastpark (who hail from Melbourne, Australia)…just down the road, although Melbournians hate Sydneysiders, alledgedly! Even through it is a closed beta demo (called Immersion2) with very limited ‘interactivity’ it gives a real sense of the potential of this new platform at least the look/feel and physics. I do like the general aesthetics of the place and of course the icing on the cake, those lovely dynamic shadows. It would have been good to be logged in as an avatar and actually check out the aspect that separates it from being ‘just a virtual space’ – but perhaps next time. For now I was inspired to do this quirky little machinima for Halloween as the demo is particularly scary…
A machinima by Gary Hazlitt in the new virtual world Vastpark
The music is by Gary Hayes performing live on his Salvi Julia (concert string spacing) Harp at the Contemporary Composers Festival run with the Royal Academy of Music in London a few years ago. There is added ambient mood and specialised sound effects using LogicStudio.
