Movie Poster: It's A Bloomin' Halloween!  The Twilight Sim

When four curious teens decide to enter the spooky house on the hill, is it a frightening dream or a hilarious nightmare? Either way, the eyes have it.

"The Twilight Sim: It's a Bloomin' Halloween!", the second collaborative production of 
Running Lady Studios, (RLS) and Virtual Girl Productions (VGP), is set in Second Life and takes advantage of the Halloween season to send up scary movies and pop culture.  

The film pokes gentle fun at Halloween tropes and pop culture icons while following the antics of four teens, a mad scientist, and a trio of precocious little girls.  The hills have eyes, but they are REALLY cute eyes.

Ms. Gameela Wright (AvaJean Westland in SL) is featured in the story which she has written, and Ms. K.DaVette See (Suzy Q Yue in SL) directs. Mr. Rob See (GnuEon Aeon in SL), handled DP duties and composed the original theme for "The Twilight Sim", an ongoing sketch in the planned webisodic series. The film is set for release on YouTube on October 23, and will premiere at the LEA theater in Second Life on October 26, 2012.

Virtual Girl Productions (VGP) was formed by Gameela Wright, for the purpose of developing a sketch comedy webisodic series in the vein of  “The Tracy Ullman Show” filmed exclusively in Second Life.  VGP teamed with RLS to produce short animated films featuring Ms. Wright as writer and star, and Ms. See as director.   The first of these films was released on YouTube last October.
