Film made in SL to raise money for cancer research

A partnership of two people well-versed in the world of digital media has come together to make a short film for the American Cancer Society.

Falco Tomsen, who regularly makes SL videos for clients, and Ridha, a Tunisian-based musician familiar to users of SL, combined their talents to make the film. It will be screened on June 29 and will help to raise money and awareness of the Cancer Society’s research center in Atlanta, GA.

The film follows a young woman’s fight with cancer. A 3D set was built in SL to represent an oncology center, and the collaboration turned out to be an international affair.

“It’s great to see people from Tunisia, Italy, the Netherlands, the United States, Germany and Australia all come together to produce something for the common good for all people,” said Ridha Cooljoke. “Second Life makes it easy for people of all religions, cultural backgrounds, race and ages to collaborate. The experience has been amazing for everyone.”
