2016 ART: VIDEO: NEW: Avatar Repertory Theater starts community promotion. HG projects

Avatar Repertory Theater starts community promotion.  
HG projects
Communities in virtual worlds can promote their activities to the public.  If they have activities unrelated to the public image of virtual worlds, they may be better suited to promote their activities than are the grids.  Avatar Repertory Theater (ART) is especially suited to produce promotional content because it includes writers, bloggers, and video producers.  This article reports on a project to promote ART activities to outworlders who are interested in some aspect of theater or video production.  These people will have no interest in coming into a virtual world to be in a virtual world, but they may be interest in coming into a virtual world to be in theater or video.  
New Theater by A.R.T.
  • This is not about virtual worlds; it is about theater in virtual worlds.
  • So our question is are you interested in theater?
  • Are you interested in performing with a group of other actors?   
  • Are you interested in performing under an experienced director
  • Are you interested in showing your voice-acting in videos?
  • Are you interested in writing for actors who will want to perform your work?
  • Are you looking for a way to do those things right now? 
  • Are you interested in building sets that will appear in videos? 
  • If you find any of those opportunities attractive, 
  • you want to find out about Avatar Repertory Theater.
  • And how you can be a part of theater right in your own home.  
  • We are located on the Hypergrid on Kitely.

  • Where is Arcadia?


          What is Avatar Repertory Theater?

          Avatar Repertory Theater is a project of New Media Arts Inc.
          We are a non-profit organization that works to preserve our cultural heritages in new media platforms, and support, develop and preserve new media arts and artists.
          After a few years as several informal volunteers' groups, New Media Arts incorporated in 2010 to put some formal footing under the projects running at that time, and to help with starting new ones. Although the projects are separate, there are touching points and overlap among all of them. We are nonprofit, tax exempt under IRC 501(c)(3). 
          Avatar Repertory Theater produces plays and videos virtual worlds, where costuming, props, actor representations and sets are all digital and virtual - live animation. It can be all a writer or producer could ever imagine or want, while the actors themselves can participate not limited by their gender, race, size, age, health or geographical location. 
          Antique Pattern Library is a library of public domain craft publications and patterns, helping ancient crafts survive and allowing everybody, regardless of money, to share in the rich heritage of patterns our ancestors left us. It provides inspiration and tutorials, patterns and philosophies. Much work goes into making the sources useful for crafters, and as a result this maker's library is appreciated and used worldwide.
          Cookie II is a more recent project, a virtual world on 
          Kitely  in the Hypergrid, where we host virtual world theater and other performance, social and resource spaces. The activities there range from resources and help for people new to virtual worlds, to technical presentation and discussions of virtual world modeling, texturing and programming ideas.
