I mistook a bug in the Second Life viewer that rendered some avatars completely black, for a new fashion trend. When I discovered it was just a glitch, I decided to try to recreate the effect cause it looked cool. This is a little music video to demo the result.
In the course of my research into my unremembered past, I stumbled upon this video transfer of a 1920's stag film. The badly damaged celluloid from which it was dubbed, was discovered in an auction of the contents of a recently recovered collection from Louis B. Mayer, co-founder of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
Fortunately, whatever sordid acts I may have committed in the later sections of the film have been destroyed through deterioration of the fragile medium.
Logic and reason dictates that it would have been impossible for me to appear in a film shot more than half a century before avatars and virtual worlds. Nevertheless, the safety deposit box from which the film was recovered, has been sealed since 1926.
Hoax? Time travel? Aliens? Lost technology? You'll have to judge for yourself.
Playing around with vintage erotica concept again. Didn't try to match anything while shooting, just wanted a quick proof of concept. Hope to eventually spend the time to really seamlessly integrate avatar with old-time footage.
