Second Skin – A Documentary About People Whose Lives Have Been Transformed by Virtual Worlds


originally uploaded by purewestdocs.

Every so often I’ve mentioned that I’m in an upcoming documentary titled “Second Skin.” Throughout this process I’ve become really great friends with the makers of the film, Pure West Documentaries. Over the past two years, I’ve helped feed them information about Second Life, World of Warcraft, and other MMOG’s and Virtual Worlds. I’ve slept in their apartment, met their girlfriends (now fiancés), helped them move, have had drinks with them, karaoke’s and talked to them about the film without ever being shown a clip.

The wait, is over, I’ve just received an e-mail from Victor that the trailer is coming on January 29th, 2008 (a week from today).

Having met these guys some two years ago (whom, they feel very much like family) and being a subject in their film, I’m really excited to see what they will come up with. I’ve heard all of the stories from their tales and adventures to different locales, some of the people they have met and some of the stories, but it will be really interesting to actually see a glimpse. They have submitted the documentary to SXSW, The Philadelphia Film Fest, DC Film Fest, Hot Docs, and the Tribeca Film Festival (to just name a few places.)

If you know nothing about Second Skin, visit the Second Skin site and check out the blog.

Hermano’s congratulations I can’t wait till next week!
