MachinimUWA V: Benicia Beck's 'High Volume'


Benicia Beck's 'High Volume' will touch many of us, for whom the content of this machinima, is very close to home.

In her words:
"Seeking wisdom --
Many of us yearn to know the answers to lofty philosophical questions. We embark on our quest early, even as toddlers -- and sometimes, eventually, we gain enough understanding to feel a bit wise. Not everyone has the luxury of that search. For them there are few opportunities and even less joy.
For some, the biggest mission of each day is to combat the feeling that there is no way out, nowhere to turn, no one to help. Trapped in a world where possibilities seem beyond reach, trying to merely survive, there is little energy left for contemplation.
Sometimes there is only a bright pink jacket as a reminder that somewhere out there there is a world where seeking enlightenment is a viable alternative to simply making it through the day. Sometimes a bridge is formed to that world; other times despair holds the role as victor.
Many of us have been touched by the suicide of a friend or loved one. Suicide deaths have risen ten percent in the last decade. Know the signs. Help when you can.
