Shelly, and the gang were over at Marko's house today, filming a bit more of the doco.
Annoyingly, when I hooked up with them online, I was pretty tired. Maybe I hadn't had as much sleep as I should've, not sure.
Incase you're not up with what's going on, December Films are making a documentary [doco] on people on Secondlife. Furries will be part of that, and that's Marko and I.
Anyway we've been filming for months now.
I think Marko and I have been really open about our feelings and that might upset the general populace, which is great really.
I'm not into shocking people for the sake of it, but to be really open about things is worthwhile... Yet a lot of people still need a good arse kick now and then.
Furries have been this hidden sub-culture of the internet for such a long time, but suddenly secondlife sprung up and forced this mixing in.
What I've been noticing is that there was an initial over-reaction from some segments of the secondlife society, which was mostly due to bad press and tv shows.
but that has mostly blown over now... the griefers have pretty much packed it in and gone home, and many in world have simply accepted furries... well why not, there's no harm.
People who wouldn't have tried furry avatars in the past are giving them a go now, and that's an interesting development.
Anyway, Filming and Editing is happening, Music is being composed.
Shelley feels we'll be filming bits and pieces till Christmas, The doco should air on Aussie TV [SBS] in March 2009 if all goes well, and then the rest of the world will get to see it later.
