Tour of the Solar System

video
In a marriage of Machinima and virtual education (in Second Life), Aimee takes us on an informative tour of our solar system. Starting with Pluto, Aimee's own voice serves as our tour guide as we zoom smoothly from planet to planet, pausing only to catch some stunning details, learn a new facts, or thrill to the movie's soundtrack.
This movie is actually only a part of a larger educational project Aimee has been working on in recent months. The sets for this movie spanned the entire length of a sim and in some cases (such as Saturn rings) the builds consisted of thousands of prims!
