Iono Allen & SL Adult Filmmaking

Iono Allen is a French machinima maker who is respected not only for his own work but also for his appreciation of others’ work. He is down-to-earth, friendly and very approachable.

Iono was the winner of the Hosoi Ichiba Machinima Award 2010 for his wonderfully atmospheric “A Question of Honour” (embedded below).

Within the machinima community, Iono is also respected for his measured and balanced views of others’ work. If Iono calls a particular work “great” or “beautiful” then you can pretty much guarantee that it is!

Iono has watched all of my films – either on NaughtyMachinima, on my own blog or in-world and was pleasingly complimentary about them, especially the later films.

In one of his own upcoming films he intends having a love-making scene and asked me to provide a few URLs of SL adult films so that he can not only see how it is best done but also learn what else is happening in the SL adult machinima scene.

The three films I selected are:

'The Executive Encounter' by Deelite Zenovka & Rysan Falls

'Summer Wine' by Quinn Ying

'Pandora's Box' by Arwen and Serenity Juneberry

There are plenty of other films I could have selected but I chose these because I feel that taken as a whole they demonstrate good quality film making, good post-production, good story telling, the willingness to be experimental and evolve – both technically and aesthetically – and also show artistic and creative ability.

I believe they support my view that SL adult filmmakers could very well become a force to reckon with in the next few years and that we will naturally earn the right to be screened at UWA, MMIF and other such SL machinima events.

Enjoy Iono Allen's "A Question of Honour"...



  1. Thankyou Pixie. it really means a lot to see Pandora's Box listed there. :)

    A lot of ideas and experiments went into it. The reason i like doing these movies is the thrill you get when you see the thing in your head start to come to life in the software as you build it, and even better, hopefully all working!

    I hope more people can get to enjoy that part of the movie making process in SL Adult Movies. We are making movies in a world where we can make anything happen, either by well planned out scenes in world, captured in Fraps, or with creative post production.

    It's an amazing pass time, from the first thoughts, to building, planning, filming, polishing and adding effects in software, editing, then showing your work. There is no time table, no deadline, make it fun, enjoy every minute of it.


  2. Pixie thank you a lot too for being mentioned aside such big names :)
    The film has been just an attempt to put at work some techniques I knew of thanks to you, and make them a part of the story! I just didn't want to make another "this is a test! movie, and make it enjoyable the best I could.
    The feedback I got so far has been so encouraging to push me into these new techniques even further... With new issues to solve and "wow" effects to get! Projected textures are not yet so common in SL, forcing me to shoot interior scenes in a studio and not in a "real" SL environment the way I'd like. I hope that with time, and shadow enabled viewers taking place more and more, they will be common some day.
    I really need your help in improving my editing, to focus on raw SL shooting is nice, but I feel I have to learn more and get better in the most fields I can :)

  3. You have a good point here!I totally agree with what you have said!!Thanks for sharing your views...hope more people will read this article!!!
