Second Life Machinima Film Premiers at SXSW

Linden Labs, the creators of Second Life are promoting the film 'Bells and Spurs' to premier at the Austin South by SouthWest festival. This is pretty interesting both because its a film that is getting 'proper' promotional release and secondly because its being hailed by Linden Labs.
"The world premiere of Bells and Spurs establishes Second Life as the foremost independent studio for Machinima production," said Philip Rosedale, CEO of Linden Lab. "We allow film directors ultimate control over every aspect of production, from character creation to sets, lighting, music and editing. We are certain that our open environment and current resident base of talented machinima artists will attract the attention and interest of existing and budding machinima auteurs."
Is Second Life stepping up its presence in the Machinima ring? Support like this by such a company could put it in a leading position for new films along side Sims2 and The Movies. Such corporate support may swoon more filmmakers.
