Essentially, however, I prefer the rugged nakedness of actual camera work; the exploring for a location, the logistics of setting up, checking lighting, hauling equipment etc.
In SL, I love exploring and finding new places. This is how I often find film locations...by recommendation or by accident.
Yesterday, tutsy tp'd me to a sim called "Sopor Aeternum". It really is worth a visit!
Expect to see this sim featured in a Pixie Rain Production any time soon....
