Coming this weekend: One Billion Rising in Second Life video

Over the last week, a group of us have been working on creating a video to go with the One Billion Rising song – Break the Chain.

On our Flickr group, you can see some awesome pictures taken by people during the filming.

As you’ll realise from those, we haven’t attempted an exact mapping of the original video. What we’ve done is to film avatars in a number of beautiful and iconic locations across Second Life. Watch to see if we feature your favourite – or maybe discover some great new places!

The dance we use is not a duplicate of the one you’ll see in the video – it was once cheorographed by Pyper Dollinger and Tatiana Kurri of Dazzler’s Dancers to match the original as far as was practicable – and throw in some special moves of our own!  And when you come to One Billion Rising, you’ll hear this anthem played every hour during the event – so that you’ll be able to dance to it too!

And, in case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the original video.
