It's that time of year again! With Hallow's End starting today, it only seemed appropriate to pay homage to the holiday with a machinima that was actually a joint effort between two creators -- Drascier and KillerCookie. This is Halloween was actually put together last year, but it still has all the charm and flavor of the holiday, and features an instantly-familiar soundtrack. The visual effects are appealing, the costumes and characters are cool, and it's difficult to see where the two artists switched off in production -- Drascier and KillerCookie work really well together as a team here.
I have to admit, though, after a week of looking at all the pretty new models, it's almost jarring to see the old ones again. I kind of want to see an updated version of this now!
I usually avoid videos with names like Precious Life and Seething Sorrow. It's not anything personal but they tend to be a little on the overwrought side. And while you might feel that's still the case with Drascier's new video, I hope you'll agree that this production is gorgeous. It's chock full of some incredible animation, a dolorous and thoughtful tone, and tells the story of a pair of sisters who could probably use some mediation. I was quite impressed by this video and hope you'll take the time to check it out.

Drascier actually has a lot of great WoW music videos, all using interesting and fun pop music from the last decade or so. I happened to choose Listen to Your Heart because it was originally by Roxette, and I'm a die-hard child of the '80s.
Listen to Your Heart isn't the best video from Drascier's selection in terms of animation, but I couldn't resist the allure of two gnomes in love. For someone who doesn't get a lot of play in the machinima scene, Drascier's video show a lot of sophisitication and know-how. All of the videos are fun, in one way or another. I highly recommend taking the time to head over to YouTube and check them out. Interested in the wide world of machinima? We have new movies every weekday here on WoW Moviewatch!
