“Avatar Days: Online Roleplaying in Dublin” a new documentary short by Piranha Bar
Originally created for the Darklight Festival’s ‘4 Day Movie’ project, Avatar Days is a portrait of four online gamers in Dublin whose daily lives contrast with their virtual identities. Advanced 3D technologies and Motion Capture animation were used to insert the players’ in-game characters in place of their real selves against the backdrop of the banal urban landscape which they inhabit.
The entire film is brilliant. But, seriously, any video with the line “I may have, on a bad day, made a dwarf very miserable” is a win in our book.
