Getting “In Motion” at TEDx Buffalo 2014 | melissa’s musings.

The final talk of the opening session was Sabrina Pena-Young with her talk entitled “Singing Geneticists and EPIC Virtual Machinima Opera in Cyberspace.” Wow! I had absolutely no idea what to expect heading into this one, and it was absolutely so different than what I had expected.

Pena-Young spoke about a virtual machinima opera she created, using contributions from people all around the world. Participants sent in sound bytes, funding and ideas and it became this huge project composed of all these pieces from worldwide. The finished product is now available online for free.

But what I took away from her talk wasn’t anything specific necessarily about animation, design, or even opera. It was about individual ideas and how the power of a community – whether a block club, neighborhood groups or a worldwide virtual environment – can come together to create this incredible product at the end. If we work together, anything is possible.”
