I don't generally like machinima, but this was amazing.

I have this in hi quality mp4 format. I don't remember where I managed to grab it but it didn't take too much searching. Still the best World of Warcraft movie.

So amazing that Percula should submit it to the creative art contest. He'd win hands down.

Technically this isn't Machinema. While the models and textures were exported from the game, the movie was not made in the game engine. It was all animated and rendered in a graphics studio. That's why it looks SO MUCH BETTER!

@elstor: While I agree that many of the people who do this sort of animation would easily win Blizzard contests, I believe that they are ineligible for entry due to the method used in creating them. If I'm not mistaken, the rules are that you cannot use even so much as a Model Viewer program. This video has obviously had several models exported from the game, modified to offer more animation and features with it's skeletons, and that's just for starters.It's amazing stuff, but not anything Blizzard themselves would publicly accept/recognize due to their ruleset. :-/
