Is machinima finally ready to become a mainstream filmmaking platform? Multimedia artist and filmmaker Douglas Gayeton spent nearly a year locked in a spare room on his Northern California farm filming his experiences inside an online virtual world called "Second Life". The result was "Molotov Alva and His Search for the Creator", a documentary recently purchased by HBO. This special screening will be followed by a conversation between the filmmaker and James "Hamlet" Au, noted author of the recently published *Making of Second Life* (HarperCollins). They discusse the filmmaker's machinima methods and strategies, the series of events which led HBO to purchase the property, and offer advice for taking your own machinima projects into the big time.
