This is my crucifixion.
It got taken down from youtube and it breaks my heart so much. There is nothing i know i can do about it. i honestly don’t know who or how to contact anyone from youtube and it hurts so much because youtube was its best outlet. It was highlighted on my youtube channel and i can’t even do anything with a highlighted video now. It’s greyed out. I don’t know if they saw it as inappropriate. i don’t know anything. i may have even simply been hacked. i have no idea. This address you are looking at right now said someone hacked into here by some form of email address code tool, so who knows what is happening.
It was actually the first dance video i ever did and it worked!
i did this dance video in 2018 after having worked as a dance master and DJ at Club Elfin in the virtual world of Second Life. Credit goes to Aki who is or was another dance master and DJ at Club Elfin, because she built the HUD you will see at the bottom of the video. We use this HUD to select the dance animations. Many dance masters do amazing programed set-ups with this HUD as it can do a lot more than i choose to do with it. i use it in real time. Each animation has been done by a professional dancer being recorded and then perhaps a little tidy up edit in the computer program to make roughly a 40 second animation. Please don’t get distracted from the dance as you may lose the feeling this video can give you, but if you watch it a few times, you can see my cursor hovering over the Hud ready to hit the next dance animation right on the beat specifically for that 8 bars or so of an individual part of the track of music. i rehearsed this dance choreography for about a moon’s month and these dancers, meaning the real life dancers who actually made the animations, are still two of my most favorite and most honored dancers.
i’ve been working towards doing my own dance in my real life body in my lounge room and having the ability to animate my avatar as i do it. i am a trained ballet dancer and also have done extensive training in ballroom dance. I’ve been studying computer animation for fifteen years now and i will keep training in computer to get there, to the place where i can truly express from ground up, like i am able to with my guitar now. i have been training with my guitar and music seriously since Nineteen Ninety-one and the next step with my guitar, which i’m working on this moon month is recording.
The music on this video is done by an especially talented professional musician by the name of Osman Grey. If you like his work you can find it at; https://osmangrey.bandcamp.com/album/get-it-out-2
The dancers who performed and recorded the actual dance to make the animations are; Bran and Hung from Okeyo and I do not know the dancer’s name from 4DStudio, but they have named the dance “Rush”. The first half of the music, is Bran’s and Hung’s moves and the second half is Rush. You will know when it shifts into Rush. It’s well worth getting to see it all.
i Elf, choreographed exactly where to place each individual animation according to the music, as i and Rhoda danced them in this video. There is no editing. We dance start to finish live. It is deep meditation for me to perform. i am the music. i am the dance.
Music by Osman Grey.
Music track; Get it Out.
Dance choreography; Elf Wingtips
Dancers; Elf Wingtips and Rhoda.(these two avatars are both me).
Dance Animations are from two stores in Second Life; Okeyo with dancers, “Bran and Hung”, and 4DStudio with the dance called “Rush”.
i was allowed the use of the little set by a friend inworld called, Trisha Rose, but sadly i don’t know who made this little set.
i didn’t put it back up on youtube because i don’t know if i’m allowed to or not. i just want you to be with me in this dance. So much of me is in this in the Dance Master and DJ side of things, but also being a ballet dancer i always choose dance animations that depict my dance as i AM in my avatar.
Many thanks for viewing. A big hug from me to you.
