Second Skin online for free thru 8/13

I saw Pure West’s Second Skin at SXSW 2008. It’s now being made available by Snag Films for free through August 13. Here’s what I thought when I first saw it:

Second Skin digs into the world of MMORPGs, and how these online games create new lives and identities — on both sides of the computer screen — for the people playing them. Not being a gamer, I wondered how much I would care about the film’s subject, especially in light of the fact that 90% of the audience I viewed it with seemed to be there to see a film about their lives. Happily, the film finds some dynamic people to follow and it does superb job of chronicling their lives, both on- and off-line. I suspect this will have a healthy life on DVD, and perhaps theatrically.

Watch Second Skin on Snag Films.

    Cannot wait to watch this on DVD (without those annoying ads) once it releases later this month!
