Behind-the-Scenes - Crowne Plaza Hotel

This was the hardest show yet - and solely because of SL lag. First, my guest Chime Bellman (aka Del Ross of InterContinental Hotel Group) had to log off and on right before we started filming.

Then as soon as we started filming, I couldn't get my avie to walk straight. I did my best to cover, sending Chime up ahead to describe the featured of the Crowne Plaza Hotels sim. But I finally had to log out live as we were filming the show and log back in so I was MIA while he described on of the meeting rooms his company offers to SL residents.

Then I finally was able to move, klutz-like, backstage, got onto the stage and demo'd the lecturn only to have my avie get stuck on it. I flew away from the lecturn, still stuck in walking animation, and spent the rest of the time in the room with my avie walking in place as if I were on a treadmill. But I kept on talking as if nothing was unusual and ended up going to my menu to Stop Animations to get out of the walking loop.

All in all, however, this was a great show. My guest was terrific, and the build had some nice details and touches as well as offered very usable meeting spaces. But I'm still waiting for my freebie - the meeting room in a box! Better go IM Chime next time I'm inworld.

Watch the Show!
