One avatar in a relationship must be from a UK based account for this casting call
“British documentary company Back2back is currently making a documentary for Sky Living about relationships that start in online communities such as Second Life, with a working title of “Happily Ever Avatar”. The programme is a completely positive documentation of these relationships, where we look at relationships that have blossomed through online gaming, with players falling in love through their avatars and going on to have meaningful, committed relationships in the real world.
It will look at unconventional relationships in a counter-intuitive way, overturning many of our prejudices and misconceptions with honest storytelling. It will challenge us to realise that committed, successful relationships can embrace the unusual.
It’s set to be a heart-warming series celebrating dating and relationships in the 21st Century. The theme is very much about 'love conquering all', and showing the incredible lengths couples that meet online go to in order to become a real life couple. I am currently looking for couples of all sexualities and backgrounds to take part in the programme.
These can be new or established relationships – even those where the partners haven’t met. The only pre-requisite is that one person in the relationship must be based in the UK.
If you’d be interested in taking part, or would like to find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org. All emails will be treated with the strictest confidence.”
