Workshop - Emoting for Creative Storytelling 

Emoting is what turns a dialog into a descriptive story full of actions and interactions between the participants.

Despite the wealth of visual clues in SL about the location there is a need to make up for the lack of avatar’s motion and actions in situ. It is always difficult to pull out an animation at the right time during the action, Avatars are not always looking at the right person when the action takes place and a plot can develop very quickly when participants acts and depend on the text rather than on visual clues. Come and find out how to develop a spontaneous text-based plot collaboratively starting from the environment you are in.
