This MachinEVO Google Community was made for the 2014 Registration in January this year and will not be used any more!

We will make a new  MachinEVO Google Community 2015. 

We will put link here to our new website with info soon!

Participant Registration will be open from

Monday 5th January - 11th January 2015 
We are busy working at our new syllabus 2015.
It will be public Sunday 7th December!

Did anyone record our MachinEVO panel today at VWBPE? I got a wonderful recording, but my voice is missing as I did not turn that feature on in FRAPS (idiot). You can hear eveyone but me, so I'd love to get that piece of audio if anyone did record. Let me know. Thanks. Even if someone could direct me to the recorded sessions that the VWBPE people did. I could capture the audio from that.

Hi there, I'm looking for recordings of the SLanguages Symposium. Are any available for viewing? Thanks!

I have a couple of questions about the sound at the awards festival.

The first question is how many participants experienced the problem.  I could barely understand what was happening during the presentations and thank goodness the people on Adobe Connect stream were able to get understandable audio.  

The second question is to speculate about why the sound was troubled. I wonder, would the sound be affected by the number of prims in our costumes?  Or perhaps it was the time of day, or perhaps it was some other internet traffic issue.  If anyone has any insight on this I would very like to understand these issues with more clarity.

I just wanted to share this (Cybere encouraged me)

I actually taught the Group 1 lesson on Monday, with my pre-intermediate f2f class, and it went really well - students mesmerised by the story. 

Actually, I used my edited version of our machinima - the Group 1 clip, edited by Cybere, is brilliant, better than anything I could do, but I needed to cut time down (showing it 3 X), and cut out the full frontal close ups of green fairy (too sexy for my Ss).

I recommend making cut up cards for Ss to rearrange in parts 2 & 3  because that worked so well with my class (bit of TPR).

I can't upload the plan here, but Heike will publish it on the Camelot site.

Although  my voice-over is rather slow and portentous I admit feeling very privileged to have been allowed to polish up the group's original script, attempt to cover up the fact that the gypsy's forecast of the future was pretty lame : "You are going to be very, very happy" and there was the obvious discontinuity of having most of the film about the piano and the grand finale being - very impressively - set at the organ console in Notre Dame! I like to think that my title  "Born to be a Musician" covers happiness, playing the piano and playing the organ.  :-)

Apologies for the unexpected "spontaneous" attempts at sound effects: what was intended to be a mighty crash sounding as if I had tickled an empty tin of beans and a trill on a recorder sounding - totally unexpected: "What was that?".

Thanks group One, most of whom I never got to know.

That was a great machinima.

And thunderous applause, of course, for the wonderful Cyber.  Osna
