His clients have included musical artists such as jazz singer Paisley Beebe and educational venues like EdTech Island for Boise State University.

His films push the boundaries of fictional story-telling mixed with new techniques including mash-ups, and utilizing other game engines and custom designed 3D animation to achieve the final work.

Cecil is currently working on a new on-going SL series and another film involving digital actors from around the world shot entirely in SL. Recently, he has been invited by Boise State University to teach a course on Machinima Making for 2008.

  • HVX Silverstar, an SL and RL instruction librarian (University of California Davis), but hailing from Liverpool, UK. "HVX" is for Panasonic's HVX200, my good friend and companion in RL [2]. I am an amature machinimatographer and spend time working with the teens on the PLCM's Eye4YouAlliance Island and great teens led by Storm Basiat of the UK in the teen grid, Peggy Sheehy and crew on Suffern Middle School's wonderful Ramapo Islands [3] and the Second Life Library and partner islands in the main grid (Info Island, Machinima Institute, Renaissance Island, Eduisland 3 - total of 44 islands). Visit the Machinima Institute on ALA Arts Info Island in the Info Archipelago: http://slurl.com/secondlife/ALA%20Arts%20InfoIsland/182/171/29 Currently we have Wohl Enoch/Colyn Wohlmut's Machinima Bibliography (ThinC Book) on display; a service learning project at the Machinima Institute which was part of the SJSU Library Science Master's program. The web version is available at: [4] Some of my machinima on YouTube: [5]. Recently I spoke at the the World Library and Information Congress, 19-23 August 2007, Durban, South Africa[6]. The flight back was eventful: Timeless Prototype was in the row behind me and also headed to SLCC in Chicago. Yes, SL is making RL smaller. The new media creatives, educators, entrepreneurs from near and far, and the the coolest, machinimatographers and SL Royalty (Philip and other Lindens), made for a great conference. Now, everyone run out and by Hugh and Johnnie's new book on machinima. Yea, SL! My Blog: [7]
