“My Immortal” is a song by the American rock band Evanescence. It was released as the third single from their debut studio album, “Fallen,” in 2003. The song was written by the band’s lead vocalist, Amy Lee, and lead guitarist, Ben Moody. It is a piano-based power ballad with a strong emotional component and is considered one of Evanescence’s signature songs. The lyrics to “My Immortal” deal with the theme of loss and grief and the song has been interpreted as being about the death of a loved one. It has been well received by critics and has been a commercial success, reaching the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart and being certified 4x Platinum in the United States.

Yesterday, filmmaker Tiara Ashley published a music video for “My Immortal” entirely within the virtual world of Second Life. Despite the limitations of working within a virtual world, Ashley was able to capture the emotional essence of the song and create a visually stunning and evocative video.

One of the key challenges in creating a video in Second Life is the fact that all of the characters and environments are computer-generated, which can make it difficult to create a sense of realism. However, Ashley overcame this limitation by using a variety of camera angles and visual effects to create a sense of depth and immersion.

The video features a virtual version of Amy Lee, the lead singer of Evanescence, as she sings and plays the piano in a beautiful, haunted-looking mansion. The video also includes other virtual characters who represent the memories and emotions associated with the song’s theme of loss and grief.

Overall, Ashley’s “My Immortal” video is a testament to the power of storytelling and the ability to create emotionally powerful experiences within a virtual world. Despite the technical challenges involved, the video is full of emotion and is a fitting tribute to the original song.
