Sweet Success

In 2012 we shot  a Machinima "Sweetening climate information for sugar cane farmers with Second Life machinima" for the 

Australian Digital Futures Institute and Australian Centre for Sustainable Catchments,  University of Southern Queensland

The Machinima, scripted by Australian Centre for Sustainable Catchments, was used as a discussion support tool for sugarcane farmers in Queensland, Australia. 

 Discussion support systems in agriculture are processes which foster discussion between stakeholders about shared issues of concern and may lead to awareness raising, learning, skill development and improved decision making. 

 Top Dingo built the set, fitted out avatars, posed, shot, edited and rendered the machinima, which was well recieved. The project is being promoted in the Virtual Worlds Best Practice in Education  at tohttp://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/EduCommons%20Alpha/128/128/24 until 31 July 2013.

Hi there.  We are now well underway with a new project for the Murdoch University in Second Life.  The centrepiece of their ME/CFS Centre (http://www.mecfs.org.au/what-is-meorcfs) is now complete and we're about to move on to the next phase of the build where the content starts to come together.  The tree is based on the gum trees that we sell inworld but this one is just over 100m tall and it has several platforms built in to accommodate the library and resource material needed by the centre. 

It's a public site; you can check it out for yourself inworld here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Murdoch%20University/186/202/22
