Sail Away costume contest

Sail Away, the unique machinima project of Rafale Kamachi, is still being made in Second Life, at Remember Island. Rafale Kamachi, who is initiator and producer of this full lenght movie, is still looking for Second Life residents who are creative and like to contribute to the film with outfits for an early 18th century setting.

For this purpose, a contest was held among creators of clothes and attributes. A number of 14 residents have taken part in the contest, and came all dressed in their best costumes to the establishment by the name of “Pirates Grotto” On Remember to show themselves, while dancing on modern tunes of DJ raph.

The “Sail Away” project (2)

Rafale Kamachi has a small production company based in Wales, Hilight Ltd, and in this background she has started to produce a innovative film project.

The full length animation film (machinima), Sail Away, will be all the way filmed in Second Life, on the isle of Remember. And it will be taken in at least French and English.
Although there is no budget at all for this very exciting and huge project, all builders, scripters, designers, directors and all others work very hard to make this movie reality.

The Bibliothèque Francophone is very happy to support Rafale Kamachi in this beautiful project and has dedicated a part of the garden to “Sail Away”. Feel free to come and see.

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:
