Image from HLS's Dred Scott Reenactment in Second LifeThe folks at Harvard Law School who have been running mock trials in Second Life have produced a machinima reenactment of part of the Dred Scott argument before the Supreme Court in 1856.

It’s just a proof-of-concept video, and there are some production issues (e.g. seeing the attorney who is “speaking” typing in the air is really odd) but they lined up a professional voice actor, and overall, it’s a decent first effort. It will be interesting to see what they can do if they devote more time to one of these.
