When I wrote about the Warcraftmovies Synergy contest
three days ago, I had no idea just how close of a fight it would be. The results are in and it was literally a battle to the death. Baron Soosdon
beat Martin Falch
by a whopping three
votes, with final scores of 299 to 296. Over the next few days, we'll be looking at the winners and giving requested feedback to some of the ones that didn't place.Baron Soosdon
followed along with the Busted
script, but there were multiple little touches that really made the film. In addition to weaving his 3d magic throughout, Pinkhair also used a third party program, Crazytalk
, to animate the lips of one of the characters. Caruu
mastered the sound, while he, Drewbie
, and Selserene
voice acted. There are also tributes to the great Shepiwot
, Drewbie's character from The Grind
, the Robber Baron of Warsong Gulch
, and the cast of Snacky's Journal
. Even I played a part in it by ruining their PR campaign
-- or so they say!
Try to keep in mind that neither script was good, so the contenders didn't have a lot to work with in the way of variation. Now that it's over, I hope that Warcraftmovies
will use a different method for their contest next time!
