This 27 minute film was made for the Third International Congress of the John Gower Society held at the University of Rochester in early July, 2014, and won Grand Prize for Machinima at the 2014 annual Machinima Expo. Be warned: these stories are not romantic: they were written to advise a king of the vices to avoid in natural rule. All adapted film is a reduction of a literary text, but I hope to have shown that machinima is up to the task of representing the Middle Ages because it operates a bit like a manuscript page in its multi-media. Text and illumination, and the voice that reads (represented by the student and her book), along with music and moving image, work together to bring a story into a new art form. I find the artistic environments in Second Life, many of them surreal, especially suited to the iconic and allegorical nature of so many medieval tales. This was a directorial debut for me: never before have I attended a live showing of any film of mine. I don't know if I ever will again. "Florent" got all the laughs, because the first two are as grim as Moral Gower himself. I needed to end on one of his high notes, and that's the story of the Loathly Lady. Contemporized.
