Often when people have trouble coming up with ideas, they say they’ve ‘hit a wall.’
I have days like that when I’m trying to think of something to write on my blog (although it is usually me banging my head on the desk, not a wall).
You’ve wracked your brain for new ideas, and you’ve come up empty.
I’ve had a number of conversations with various people in SL about whether this is the case with dance in SL.
There have been some new tools released recently, but do they qualify as ‘new’ and ‘innovative’?
As one person said – do any of the new tools change anything from the audience’s perspective?
I’m not sure they do.
One of the things that always made things seem new (to me, at least) was new dance animations.
Sadly, it seems that there are hardly any new animations being released.
I used to go dance shopping every week to see what was new.
I can now go months before I see any new content.
Things that used to seem ‘new’ and ‘exciting’ have become old hat – particles, set changes, faders, etc.
When movers came out, walking on walls, flying, riding in a car – those were amazing things that were then possible.
But I can’t think of anything I’ve seen in a show lately that made me think, “Wow! That’s amazing – how did they do that?”
Maybe it’s just me.
What have you seen lately that made you say, “Wow!” ?
