Prim Perfect is proud to be the production company behind some of Second Life’s most popular TV shows – including Designing Worlds, Happy Hunting! and The Blackened Mirror.
Designing Worlds—brought to you by Prim Perfect Productions—explores the work of, and issues affecting, designers in virtual worlds. We feature material about design, especially homes, gardens, and related topics—as well as makeovers of Second Life homes. We visit locations in Second Life and other grids like InWorldz that we believe will interest our viewers—looking at the work of talented content creators, as well as nonprofit and educational projects. And sometimes… we just have fun!
We also have shows set in our fantastic studio on Garden of Dreams. These shows feature discussions about important issues such as content theft and intellectual property rights, tips for the homeowner and home renter, and interviews with some wonderful designers and creators.
The programme is presented by Saffia Widdershins, the Editor of Prim Perfect magazine, and Elrik Merlin of Radio Riel.
Designing Worlds is shown every Monday at 2:00pm SLT. You can watch the show on our channel at SLArtist, on Aview.TV or download it from the iTunes store (just search there on Designing Worlds) to play on your screen or on your tablet—it can be fun to watch at the gym!
But most fun of all is to join our live studio audience on Garden of Dreams—where you can watch the show and even be a part of it if we are filming in the studio. In addition, you’ll often have a chance to talk to the guests after the show is ended.
All our earlier shows are available on the Treet.TV site and the more recent are available from our channel at SLArtist and are also available for FREE download from iTunes as a podcast (just go to the iTunes store and search on “Designing Worlds”—it’s free to download or to subscribe to the podcast).

Happy Hunting! is the TV show that is all about hunts in Second Life. It appears on the web every Friday on Aview TV and on the Happy Hunting blog.
In each ten minute show we have news and reviews 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 occasional interviews with some of the people behind the hunts.
The show is presented by Cinders Vale with Rosamoo Mendelsohn presenting the Hunt Buzz, and filmed and edited by Rosamoo Mendelsohn and Petlove Petshop.

The Blackened Mirror
The Blackened Mirror is a drama series, created in a virtual world, with elements of film noir, steampunk, classic Lovecraft horror – and more! You can watch it on The Blackened Mirror website, at Treet.TV, at Aview TV or on You Tube.
The first season took Quinn from his seedy office in 1930s America to a history that never was, and on to strange worlds as he awoke trouble from his past; trouble that hit him at home, trouble that forced him to face the evils of his youth. The means was Miss Alleyn’s strange device known as a Resonator that turns any mirror into a door across dimensions, enabling the possessor to travel wherever they may wish to go, leaving no more than scorched glass to mark their passing.
In season two we discover more of Quinn’s dark past and the origins of his chilling doppelganger, learn what becomes of the friends he left behind in Seraph City and see the price that comes with secret knowledge, leaving one of our heroes with a terrible choice that must be made…
Season 3 is currently on hiatus, but you can find out more about it at The Blackened Mirror website.
In the past, Prim Perfect has produced other media too.
The Primgraph was a steampunk and historically-themed magazine that ran from July 2008 until February 2011, totalling 11 issues in all.
There were features and stories covering a wide range of places in Second Life and beyond.
You can see more on the website.
The Quest for the Golden Prim
One of the features of The Primgraph was a standalone graphic novel, The Quest for the Golden Prim. The complete Chapter 1 and the start of Chapter 2 are available at Calameo.

From July 2010 until May 2012, Prim Perfect produced an art show, Metaverse Arts, which was shown on Treet.TV. It offered a perspective on the art scene in Virtual Worlds between those dates.
From more articles on the Second Life Art Scene at that time (largely written by the art historian Rowan Derryth), see the Ekphrasis and Ekphrasis-Derryth posts in the Prim Perfect blog.
