Starless Cinema And Virtual Reality TV

Hard times in Hollywood mean smaller salaries for stars and writers alike as the industry struggles to keep its head above water. The studios may well be keeping a close eye on the Machinima Work Group (and others like them), who are using the 3D engines of virtual worlds like Second Life to create a new breed of cinematic art where the only budget restraint is that of man-hours. And not a moment too soon either, as we hear reports that Second Life is about to become host to another iteration of the inexplicably popular Big Brother franchise – it may be a brilliant PR move, but that’s a big dent in SL’s cultural kudos from where I’m sitting.
