WoW Moviewatch: Dragon be Gone

Dragons are a big topic right now. They've become pests all through Azeroth and are bordering on a literal Cataclysm. The good news for you is that Frozen Death Knight and Erunno have a solution for you. They've put together a commercial for Bill Moneypouch's unparalleled product, Dragon be Gone.

This video is short, sweet, and wonderfully executed. It was created for the Cataclysm commercial contest, but it does an amazing job of showing off how much Erunno and FDK can squeeze out of graphics. It's really amazing to watch, and the script is pretty funny. Check it out and let us know what you think.

WoW Moviewatch: 1 Minute Machinima Entry

This is our second time talking about Frozen Deathknight, who worked with Erunno on an entry into Alienware's Rise to Power contest. This movie is Frozen's first solo machinima (at least, according to the video's soundtrack), and was created to be a 1 Minute Machinima Entry into Baron Soosdon's contest to win a StarCraft II machinima key. While we'd normally be covering the rest of the Rise to Power entries today, I wanted to take a break and remind folks that the Baron's contest ends this Friday. If you're looking to enter, you should get your video finished up and off to the gnome-master.

Frozen's video soars, in my opinion, in terms of his voice acting. His voice work is smooth and interesting, and the language is very crisp and clear. That might sound like lame feedback, but a lot of machinima's voice-work can be very difficult to actually hear and understand. Frozen's soundtrack stands out in that regard.

The video is a quick bit of fun. It's light-hearted, moves fast, and is worth every second you spend watching it. Sure, there's no blood elves rapping, but you have to take what you can get. Given Frozen's ability to frame a skit in such little time, I'm very interested to see what he might be doing next.

WoW Moviewatch: A Dead Bug's Life

Today we feature the last of the European winners for Alienware's Rise to Power contest. A Dead Bug's Life is the creation of Erunno and Frozen DeathKnight, two of the luminaries who regularly post over on the Myndflame site. You should remember Erunno from his outstanding work with The White Drake, a movie that helped redefine visual storytelling in Wrath of the Lich King machinima.

In contrast to the silent narrative in The White Drake, this Rise to Power movie had a great deal of dialogue. It displayed an amazing amount of wit and light-hearted characterization between the Lich King and Anub'arak. My favorite line was when Arthas complains how much fun it is to "constantly ressurect an oversized roach." I don't want to discuss the ending of the movie, since it would definitely give a significant spoiler. But let's say an old, ancient foe of the Alliance returns to join the Lich King's army.

A Dead Bug's Life is a beautiful movie. The graphics are intriguing and well done, seamlessly integrating to the story. You can really see how A Dead Bug's Life won its prize.
