About the ISTE Collaborative Machinima Project from Knowclue.

Our Goal:

We want to show the world the real power of ISTE SL by highlighting real people who are doing real work in education. We are asking for a few brave members to “out” their “real selves” in order to tell their own stories about why they value ISTE Second Life. The video will be used to promote ISTE SL on the web and at conferences.

We also need members to contribute machinima clips depicting the wide variety of things happening in world on ISTE Island. I will edit together the bits and pieces to tell our collective stories.

This is an exciting way for our members to learn, share and collaborate together. For the next four weeks, ISTE Socials will focus on making Machinimas. Come experiment with this new form media, work with your friends and tell your stories. Together we will make the best little machinima in SL!

She even has some tips posted here.
