Dateline: Los Angeles – TIME TRAVELERS has Laurels

Time Travelers has won an Award of Excellence at the Los Angeles Movie Awards.

Machinima and real–time animation took a huge step with the inclusion in the awards circle for film competition in the animation category. For this genre to be recognized as valid it has to stand head to head and shoulder to shoulder with more traditional forms of animation. As the ability to use story, character development and plot grows along side mastery of the genre, we are confident that we will see this great and breathtaking new medium continue to win awards as a graphic platform of its own, WITHIN animation categories.

I really Think that this film from Pook & Russel, is a definitive Machinima of the platform Second Life, and puts SL's best foot forward in their own marketing campaign to social, as well as mainstream media.

OUTSTANDING, Kudos to you both :)

Congratulations, Pooky!

The award was inevitable... Your team focused on details of plot, character, message, setting, and so on, right down to the curling of the lips. (Had to comment on that one. It was great!)

This is the transition as Machinima evolves from merely a marketing tool and toy to an art form!
