My Second Life

A documentary filmed entirely in the online world of Second Life gets bought by HBO; will head to Sundance and possibly the Oscars.

My Second Life is a video diary of the life of Second Life resident Molotov Alva, and it created a stir when it debuted earlier this year. The HBO sale marks first time a movie has gone from SL to a mainstream TV channel (first via YouTube, of course).
