Ah, the life of being a designer in and out of second life! Oh how I may have left the ranks of the fashion designers, but in a way, I'm still tethered to Adobe's code like a pup to the treat jar. I am looking for volunteers to model for track covers, this means that you'll get professional second life photography done by me, as well as be featured on youtube and other platforms. No moving videos planned as of yet, most of the videos are still visualizers with the cover bouncing in the background.
With your permission, you'd be featured on Soundcloud, Audius, Youtube, and other places. Full credit is given to you the model! Requirements are that you have an aimed list of what you're wearing so it can be listed in the next release post about the song. I have a back catalog of tracks that I'd like to re-do or create new covers for and feature some different faces.
Interested in seeing the sample of what I've made so far? See the gallery in question below:
Here's a sample of a recent track (Chase The Sun):
What you need to do is different based on your level of what you're familiar with:
You can contact me via discord by joining my server: https://discord.gg/JjrKCUG
You can contact me in world via Tokyo Enyo or Starlordx1983 Resident via notecard.
You can message me via the wix messenger on this blog.
You CAN fill out a google form if it's easier for you - and that link is here: https://forms.gle/TBVEcwU8FC8Em9q39
Notecards are harder as I don't log in as often during the week, but I am adhering to trying to be on twice or more a week to do something with this blog and other ventures I plan on exploring.
Your best options are Discord, Wix's In Site messenger, Google form or e-mail. This way your notecard doesn't get eaten on the way through the cloud and uplifting!
The only other requirements are: Must be 18 or older. Must be 30 days or older in Second Life. I will work through alternative avatar bodies such as tweenster, youth, sking, etc - on a case by case basis. There is a strong case for transgender and other avatars - (you don't have to ask twice, LGBTQIA+ peeps!) - I also am more than happy with diversity on any level. The only reason I put a case by case basis on certain bodies, is it would ENTIRELY depend on the project on what is required. Rarely am I ever sadly and sorry to say going to need anyone wearing a SKING body - Though from what I've seen Kupra is an alternative to the classic sking types - and these may be interesting to use in a project.
You must remember that these are considered an art form, not just in the music - but in the design of the cover and planning.
The google form won't be asking classic blogger questions as you'll be wearing your own items, and you'll be in charge of what you're wearing based on the theme of the track in question. Please note: Flexi items are going to be a big NO if they amp your complexity up. They're not banned, but some Flexi items that are older bring your complexity up and while my viewer can see 200k+ - it's a stretch when I'm running on high graphics.
Legal Disclaimer: The use of the photographs and the final product will be used in portfolio, advertising, and distribution. If you aren't OK with this, please don't apply. Your avatar name and your look will be credited on every platform possible. This includes Flickr, my main real-life portfolio site, this blog, and any other sound/video sites required for distribution of the music involved.
YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO BE A CURRENT MODEL OR BLOGGER - Apply at will if you are even just a regular SECOND LIFE RESIDENT!
This is not a JOB - you do not earn LINDENS. However, for purposes of in-world employment, you can use me as a reference. (Like for Djs, Hosts, or other gigs you're going for.) This is not a REAL LIFE job either, we're under a pandemic and I'm not flying cross country on a 0 dollar budget with my DSLR to film/photograph you lol.
You do earn photographs and other things related to project involvement.
Past models have included: Arkaine Gears and Alyssa Pyrithea (Dj BBG).
What you will be given at the end: The final designed cover, and any professionally shot/edited photos of you to use as a model/blogger. You will also be given a copy of the track in question in mp3 format.
If you have any questions or concerns, comment - use the messenger, or get ahold of me as above!
