Happy Hunting! is the treet.tv show that is all about hunts in Second Life. You can watch the broadcast live in the studio every other Friday at 3pm SLT. If you can’t get there, just click on the link at the top-right of our home page.
The show is presented by Cinders Vale, well-known as the RFL Survivors/Caregivers chair. She’s joined by Rosamoo Mendelsohn, our Hunt News Reporter.
In each show we have news of ongoing and upcoming hunts, tips, advice, and shout-outs for hunts that are looking for participants. We show items that have caught our eye, as well as interviews with some of the people behind the hunts.
The People bringing you Happy Hunting!
Happy Hunting! is very lucky in uniting a team of people with a wealth of experience in virtual worlds – and in virtual world TV too!
Cinders Vale, Presenter
Cinders came into Second Life back in 2006 at the urging of her real life cousin, Jeremey Ryan, especially since many of their friends from MYST:Uru Online were already here on the grid. She wandered around exploring, tried to stop rezzing stuff on my head, and worked on learning the ropes.
“We won’t mention that for a time I was the queen of freebies!” she says.
Once she discovered the Second Life‘s Cancer Survivors group and the American Cancer Society sim, she found a way to give back. Her involvement in the fight against cancer has grown over the years. She has been the Chair of the Makeover Magic Committee, served on the RFL Survivors/Caregivers Committee, and she’s been the Head of the 2011 RFL Survivors/Caregivers Committee. As a cancer survivor since 2002, she knows that every birthdays is a true reason to celebrate.
“One of the fun activities I discovered about Second Life were the HUNTS!” she says. “Big or small, that didn’t matter as long as I could be on the trail of those cool hunt gifts. Since I love exploring Second Life I couldn’t think of a better way to see new places. Impulse buying is certainly a side effect of doing hunts!”
Cinders is also the owner of the Nexus Arts Gallery in Broken Creek. Her main focus has been pottery and lamps, with some photography. Now she says that she is ready to really start challenging herself creatively. As the host for Happy Hunting!, she hopes you will become a regular viewer and audience member.
“Hunts are great fun and this show will be a great match for all you hunters out there. See you all in the studio soon!”
Rosamoo Mendelsohn, Hunt Reporter
Rosamoo loves hunting in Second Life: as a hunter, as an organizer and as a creator. With her partner, Xia Nishi, she is the co-developer of Hunt SL, which aims to present the most complete and up-to-date hunt information for SL’s hunt community.
“I am honored to be part of the Happy Hunting family. It’s great to have an excuse (like I really need one!) to go out everyday tracking down the fabulous gifts that designers offer to those willing to work for the prize!”
Petlove Petshop, Camera and Editor
Petlove was looking for a creative outlet when she discovered Second Life in 2006. As she learned her way around the virtual world, she developed new skills in areas that were virtually impossible in real life! Building, photography, fashion, and art were her primary passions until she discovered two old loves with new possibilities – performance art and machinimatography! Now she is delighted to work with some of the most talented teams of writers, producers, and performers in any capacity that results in a visual record of the beauty and creativity that abounds in Second Life. Petlove is Happy Hunting’s camera person and film editor. Send her a line!
