Our SL colleague, Chris Smith aka Shambles, was asked to speak at the first Ted Talk to be held in Thailand – knowing the type of presentation he wanted to give, he contacted Leon about helping to record and assemble the in-world portion.
Naturally, being TED fans already and with the success of previous Shambles collaborations (including the infamous ISI Mash-Up), it was fait accompli – almost With a preliminary script from Shambles in hand, we did a refresher recce (aka location scout state-side) to International Schools Island. Getting still photos to work out camera angles lead naturally to creating a storyboard for discussion. Using a range of web tools, pre-production information was securely shared thru several time zones prior to the actual shoot day. Knowing of the 18-minute “Ted commandment” for the final live presentation, it was a bit of a surprise that it took hours of recording machinima in Second Life with Shambles to get all the footage needed.
Naturally, working with Shambles always leads to impromptu tangents ;-p. With some judicious editing, we did get the Shambles footage assembled with time left for Chris to speak for the live portion in Bangkok conference. Chris also did a pre-record of his lines in order for us to get a full assembly.From his Bangkok hotel after the event, Chris happily shared with us the success of our TEDxBKK presentation!Check it out on Vimeo!OR Link to full screen HERE
