WoW Moviewatch: I'm Only Sleeping

It's a slow machinima day, so we're bringing you another one from the archives. Dating back to April 2007, I'm Only Sleeping, named after the Beatles song, isn't one of my favorite works of Olibith's. If you're into psychedelic floating, flying adventure music videos, then you'll enjoy it, though! Indeed, it was an audience favorite at the Bitfilm Festival, where it scored him the top prize last year.

[Thanks, Tumnus!]

Bitfilm Festival nominees announced

Bitfilm, a festival that takes place in Hamburg, Germany, announced the shortlist today for their sixth annual event. Among the nominees are a whopping three from World of Warcraft. Despite WoW machinima only being a formidable contender in the last two years, Olibith took home the top prize last year with I'm Only Sleeping!

The WoW nominees for 2008 are:
From today until July 1st, you can sign up for an account and vote on your favorite machinima. The top prize takes home 1500 Euros and an award plaque with a suggestive looking female robot on it! However, voters also have a chance to win prizes based on active rating.

WoW Moviewatch: Olibith, the Urban Spaceman

Before Olibith created award-winning machinimas, such as I'm Only Sleeping and the Never Stay Tuned series, he was a wee Urban Spaceman. This short music video is just another example of an artist overcoming their earlier obstacles and going on to greatness! You can see the Fraps watermark, there are all sorts of cheesy effects, and rumor has it that he didn't even know what machinima was back then! If you haven't seen Olibith's latest work, Never Stay Tuned 3, you'll be shocked at the difference in quality.

WoW Moviewatch: An interesting WoW "documentary"

The Bitfilm Festival is currently taking machinima submissions until March 15th, 2008. Last year, Olibith took the top prize, with "I'm Only Sleeping". This year, with machinima more popular than ever, the competition is heating up.

Alin Putinelu decided to submit this humorous documentary into the contest. He walks the viewers through the development process of a video game, while showing images and video of WoW. While I found it informative, I don't know if it's award-winning material. The easy listening music and serious voiceover were a nice touch, though!

WoW Moviewatch: Olibith gets old

Machinimators have quickly learned that if they want special 3D animations or sets done, Pinkhair is the man for the job. Previously known for his Warcraftmovies Christmas Spirit Contest entry that narrowly missed being in the top three, he has helped artists such as BaronSoosdon and Ian Beckman in his spare time.

In honor of Olibith receiving double platinum on WCM for "I'm only sleeping", Pinkhair finished a timelapse of the saucy filmmaker using Lightwave. He has stated that if there is interest in learning how to do it, he may post a tutorial. If you would like to see a tutorial, join #machinima on Quakenet IRC and let him know!
