It featured the performances of the bands Buddhahead and Shock Radar playing live at the venue, streamed live into SL as the backdrop where the band’s avatars were performing for the virtual audience and footage of the virtual performance shown back into the club, both streaming live back and forth. We created the stage setting environment, custom avatars modeled after real life band members and in world promotional items. We also puppeteered at real life event and filmed and produced machinima for event.
