Media Review Panel: Douglas Story, Jon and Kim Pluskota, and Soni Fitzroy

This short film is an homage to Scottius Polke's eerie art environment called "The Docks," on display through June 30, 2011 at Originalia in Second Life. Comes with one of my narrated short shorts. ;) Also (covertly) addresses the non-reality behind machinima.

It's at 2:48-49.  Aaaaaaaaack!!!  Yeah, I saw it originally and let it go because of a deadline; mea culpa!  I don't see any stars in it, just a shadow that darkens the scene.  The cam was fixed; I don't know what it was.  I don't think it was another frame that I forgot to delete, but it could have been.  Dacob, I kinda like the pace. :(  I value your attention to this, though.  Thanks.  (posted and edited; took out the unnecessary phrases which will probably end up in your email.  Don't you hate that?   hahahahahah!)

I'm so glad you caught that deliberate revelation, Douglas!  Many thanks for your sharp eye!  I really loved making this machinima.

Brava. I know Scottius quite well, and this is one of my favorite builds of his. You've done a fabulous job crafting a story from this environment where, as you point out, there was none. Particularly crafty is the way you avoid letting the camera show us the ghostly figures until the right point in your tale, making that camera reveal part of the story.

   Love it.

Well done.  The visuals melt onto the screen, and transition well into one another.  The narration with the music gently moves the story forward.  Good work on lighting.  This piece moved quickly for me, and that says alot about a strong machinima.   Kudos.  Thank you for your wonderful submission and hypnotic voice over.  :)  Soni
