The “Sail Away” project

remember islandThis project is to make a full length via SL machinima. Sail Away is a fiction about what happened to Anne Bonny after she escaped the noose by claiming the belly. As no one knows what happened to her after that, Sail Away is a kind of revenge over the life she led.
Sail Away is an adventure in the true sense of the word, yet it is also a story about women, the choices and the sacrifices they make in the pursuit of their dreams.

WHY SUCH A PROJECT
Sail Away is to be used as promotional tool for all involved. It will be the first full length ever made using machinima.
What will make this project even more interesting to my eyes is that as the script is to be divided into chuncks and each chunk shot by a different director with his/her own feel, we will end up with a movie that shows different visual perspectives.

THE DIFFERENT STAGES
Stage one of the project was to buy and island and mark it up as “pirate territory”. Phase one is achieved with Remember Island. Rentals have been set up and traders are settling in the ship that is used as shop to hopefully help pay Linden Lab tier fees.

Stage two is the selection of machinima directors who will be in charge of producing chunks of the script. We are entering this stage now.

Stage three, rewriting of each chunk to satisfy the needs of each director while ensuring that the thread of the story remains intact.

Stage four will be to:
· Organize teams linked to the directors. The teams comprising builders for the sets, shape and skin artists, costume designers and animators. For each team, a team manager.
· Find actors.

Stage five will be to:
· Organize the shooting using the island as movie studios. This means building and putting sets in place.
· Getting musicians to create original pieces.

Stage six will be to:
