how not to pick me up

The first xtranormal I saw, I fell in love. It’s not that every conversation should be reduced to monotone text-to-voice, often foul-mouthed cuddly avatars. It’s that they invariably are, now, in my head, while conversations are actively happening.

Here’s my first foray. The web-based software was easy to use but I could not get it to render properly in the final publishing. The camera angle cuts are out of place, with some herky-jerky movements I didn’t put in the script. Hrm. Disappointing. I’ll have to experiment more later. In the meantime, here is how not to pick me up at the Minneapolis Electronic Music Festival.

    Ha! Xtranormal is awesome. Next time I see you at a music event I’m going to offer you some water and tell you how much you hate the DJ. Just kidding.

    My experiments with Xtranormal have been tricky to master as well. They’re always working on improving the software so it should get better over time.

    The water part was cool. Everything else was painful.

    Nice vid! Great avatar movements with “I totally blow up the dance floor with epic builds that get you higher and higher until you are like yeah, man.” LULZ.
