WoW Moviewatch: Teh nOOb song

If you read a post yesterday about noobs who like to pretend that other people are teh noobs, then you may already have clicked on the link for this song. It truly deserves its own spotlight, however. So on behalf of all the noobs out there who noobishly hope to one day not be so nooby anymore, let's give a shout out to Olibith and PurePwnage for another music video masterpiece: "teh n00b song" -- winner of the Warcraft Movies Fabled Few contest in the music category!

WoW Moviewatch: Netherwing - The Movie

Continuing our spotlight of the top movies in Warcraft Movie's Fabled Few contest, today we have something special for those of you suffering from extended server downtime: a fifteen minute movie.

Why would you want to watch a 15 minute machinima piece? Because this one is very, very well done. Story, script, music, cinematography, sound effects, you name it. This movie has got it. It ended up placing 2nd in the Drama category, only beaten by Black Rose.

Netherwing - The Movie dramatizes the event surrounding the Netherwing faction quest in game. And for once, doesn't use the Blood Elf model to make the race look like a bunch of prancing idiots. Part 1 is above, and part 2 of the movie is after the jump.

If you want to know more about the film maker and his other projects, check out his blog at Stormscape Creations.

WoW Moviewatch: Black Rose

After five days of showing you various runner ups to Warcraft Movies' Fabled Few machinima contest, it's time to put the spotlight on the finalist with the most votes. Who is the player who beat out Baron Soosdon for the top spot?

The $1,000 Grand Prize winner is Kenion with his Music entry, Black Rose. As the creator mentions on the movie's page, making action videos using the limited animation of WoW characters is tough. But with fast-moving music, clever camera angles, excellent editing and dazzling special effects, Kenion sure found a way to make it work.

WoW Moviewatch: Among Fables And Men

The top winners of Warcraft Movies' Fabled Few continue to impress. First place in the drama category went to Dopefish for this video that pushes the boundaries of what you've seen before in WoW Machinima. No voice over, no text and no moving video. This entire tale is told using still images. And it's one of the best you'll see this year.

Budding machinimists often forget how important music and sound effects are to telling the story. Dopefish challenged himself by using only those two elements on his soundtrack. Add to that the innovative use of screenshots and you get a film that weaves a spell that draws you in. And isn't that what a good story should do?

Tomorrow, we'll be spotlighting the Grand Prize winner.

WoW Moviewatch: To Cure A Hangover

The first place winner in the Comedy category of Warcraft Movies recently finished Fabled Few contest is none other than Baron Soosdon. His surreal images and fast-paced editing are on display in "To Cure A Hangover" and also something else we rarely see from him: a narrative structure.

You see, this Orc Warlock had too much to drink the night before and needs to rent a video to keep his demonic minions happy while he recovers. What? That's not enough of a story for you? That's more than you get in any given episode of "Seinfeld."

WoW Moviewatch: Roll a Horde - Elf Hunters

The Warcraft Movies site has always been a great source of WoW-based machinima. Recently, they held a video creation contest called the Fabled Few to find the best of the best among today's visual storytellers. The finalist were selected and the voting closed on Tuesday.

The vid above is the runner up in the Comedy category. Inspired by the "Get A Mac" commercials, a Blood Elf and Night Elf argue superiority based on racial abilities. After you watch the film, I think we all can agree that we've grouped with someone like the Belf Hunter depicted. And immediately found a reason to /disband.
