Second Skin: Documentary Focuses on MMO Players


A new documentary is focusing on the lives (and loves, and lost jobs) of MMO fanatics. The seven profiled players are a mix of styles, from the hopelessly addicted, gold farmers, those who have moved on, and the casual players. Thankfully, from the trailer, it doesn’t look like it’s condemning the players even though it has an obvious comedic hook. Instead, the trailer delivers a sharp first look at this piece with interviews from all sides (except the “experts” as posted on the website, and that link is down as well). While it might not fight with King of Kong for best documentary, this one still looks like a fine piece of filmmaking.

The website offers all of the links you’ll need. For a quick trailer, a YouTube video can handle that.
