Second Skin is a documentary on MMORPGs and the people who play them. It appears to be pretty honest on the subject, and thankfully doesn’t seem to be made by a bunch of stuffy old professor-types who just don’t get it.
It is set to premiere at the SXSW festival on March 7th, 2008.
Here is the trailer (which seems to feature a lot of Warcraft):
Description from the website:
Second Skin takes an intimate look at computer gamers whose lives have been transformed by the emerging genre of Massively Multiplayer Online games (MMOs). World of Warcraft, Second Life, and Everquest allow millions of users to simultaneously interact in virtual spaces. Second Skin introduces us to couples who have fallen in love without meeting, disabled players who have found new purpose, addicts, Chinese gold-farming sweatshop workers, wealthy online entrepreneurs and legendary guild leaders – all living in a world that doesn’t quite exist.
