Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 4th March, for our new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams as we take several peeks behind the scenes at how the event One Billion Rising in Second Life was created – and how the music video “Break the Chain” was created in Second Life as well!

We’ll be talking to Victor1st Mornington about how he created the amazing stage, to Judi Newall about how it felt to be there as a volunteer on the day.

And then we’ll be visiting the Dazzlers to talk to Pyper Dollinger and Tatiana Kurri about how they created the amazing dance that formed the core of the video, to Samantha Ohrberg about her work with sponsors and pulling the dance together, and to Petlove Petshop who filmed and edited it (with a little assistance!). Petlove also talks about the challenges of streaming such an event for a full twenty four hours, as she was the organiser of the Livestream team who made sure the whole event was broadcast.

And we’ll be looking at the stunning art installations that were created for the event, and talking to two of the artists whose work was such a vital part of One Billion Rising – Em Larsson and Solkide Auer. And we’ll also be taking a tour of many of the installations that were on display.

Today’s Designing Worlds show is all about One Billion Rising in Second Life, and takes a look behind the scenes. Among other people, we’ll be talking to some of the people behind the making of the music video we created – Pyper Dollinger and Tatiana Kurri of the Dazzlers, and Petlove Petshop who filmed and edited the final product.

We’ll be talking to other people too – and looking at the event and the amazing art installations that were an important part of it. More details coming later but – in the meantime – here is a jigsaw!
