Enchanted Frost Hunt Gifts: Machinima Open Studio Project

The Enchanted Frst does not only leads you to shops. There is more to explore! A very special place is the Machinima Open Studio Project. Many different scenes invite to take photos and videos. Learn more about the project:

Press Release
"Quiet on the set ...   Roll cameras ..."

If you ever dreamed of being a movie mogul, the time is now. The Machinima Open Studio Project at LEA20 offers a wide variety of locales and sets built with filming in mind.  Nine builds dot the countryside with more to come. Peaceful Valley sits in the shadow of tall mountains, should you keep the region Windlight setting, while the cottages and outdoor locations along Beach Walk are definitely a sun lover's paradise.  LEA20 isn't too different from your favorite picturesque sim, except of course it is filming friendly.

There is that open spaces advantage in effect also. Houses have been situated to encompass vista; more shots are available and you may never even need to use that derez option. Ground level is fun to explore even as you may wonder how railroad tracks appear and disappear, seemingly going nowhere -- how a bunkhouse turns into a schoolroom when you enter. No, it isn't the twilight zone; it is simply the set designer taking advantage of spaces.

The welcome area is your starting point. Boards with photos let you choose your venue or opt for a HUD with the full list of locations right at your fingertips. The project includes four sound stages. I hear that food services just dropped by on Stage One, so heading over there is most likely your best bet. And what do you know? It really IS a sound stage. Well, perhaps a bit neater than the norm and with fewer cords and less electrician's tape; but still the ambiance is evident. Chose a set and of course take some pictures!

Another impressive area is the High Corporate Offices which are open for meetings and classes -- and of course filming. Just ask for a group invite if you need to put an ad in the Events listings. There is also a movie camera, an anchor desk and a widescreen backdrop that let's you click for different stills to help tell your story.

And this is your great hunt prize:
