Jul 12th 2010 2:16PM Are you kidding? I'm in the animated filmmaking biz and we (the filmmakers) don't have any agenda other than to entertain and perhaps make people think. Now, the studio has another agenda: to make money. However, neither agenda corresponds with your bizarre statement.
Oh, and, yes, we make films that make US laugh. We know kids will like them anyway cause they are animated; we never write films with kids in mind (except keeping it clean enough to get the G or PG rating).
Sep 18th 2007 2:49PM This was actually made by Sedrin of Slashdance, who is not really an 'amateur' to machinima - although it IS an early piece, created before he won the Atari's music vid contest for "Frame of Mind" and the Blizzcon movie contest (1st in drama) for "Interlude". Do just a little homework before posting please.
Aug 30th 2007 6:41PM Thanks for the crap comments people. In my defense: This is almost 2 years old and was put together very quickly. Definitely awkward, I have learned a lot since then. I'm not sure why it's on Moviewatch. :P
Aug 27th 2007 2:21PM What's offensive to me about that vid isn't so much the racism as the awful singing/rapping.
Aug 13th 2007 2:11PM Elizabeth, please stop comparing everything to Illegal Danish. That is certainly not the end all, be all of wow machinima.
Aug 9th 2007 1:50PM Ugh, terrible artwork and worse animation. Looks like the work of people who couldn't get a real job in the animation industry and are trying to 'prove' something. Why bother animating, why not keep it a comic? As someone who's never heard of LFG, but does play WoW, it didn't strike me as bringing anything new to the mmorpg community but just a lot of bad jokes that got old in the first 30 seconds.
May 4th 2007 12:56PM Thanks very much for posting that, Elizabeth - but, ahem, that's "Snacky's" with no "e". :) Gotta help the search engines.
May 4th 2007 12:50PM Why did the artist have to use CG if it's just a still? A talented painter could do just as well.
It's creepy to see a NE look so "human". I would think that an artist would have a better imagination than that - an elf should look different. Have a thinner face. Higher cheekbones, stranger eyes - SOMETHING. This looks like some fanchick all dressed up for cosplay. Creeps me out. Wow is fun because it has a fun, unique graphic style, which doesn't try to approximate reality. If I wanted to look at people like this I'd go to Dragoncon or something.
Sep 11th 2006 4:51PM Hehe, this brought back some memories. I stopped watching TNG after about 3 seasons but I definitely remember this episode. I agree, I thought it was an odd story choice after only so recently introducing the new show/chars. - I mean, we didn't really know what they were like yet, so it wasn't nearly as much fun to see them intoxicated as it would've been had we gotten to know them better.
And Wil - you know what, I really didn't remember any of the Wesley dork stuff until you wrote about it again here. The Tasha/Data and Picard/Crusher stuff was what I remembered.
