Inside the Avatar Studio at Rockcliffe University



"What future avatars may gain from the stunning futuristic vision James Cameron has offered up... Inside The Avatar Studio".

I was one of forty-nine avatars who attended the "Inside the Avatar Studio" at Rockcliffe University on Tuesday January 5th. Pictured above, from left to right are panelists; Doubledown Tandino, fourworlds Ra, Phelan Corrimal, Dirk Talamasca, and Beyers Sellers. The session was facilitated by Phelan Corrimal/Kevin Feenan - Dean of Rockcliffe University. The topic of discussion was the implications of the movie "Avatar", and it's impact as virtual worlds continue to grow.

The event was to have been filmed live by Stuart Warf of Rezzed TV.
