WoW Moviewatch: Too Cute to Kill

This movie by Irdeen Productions scored the third place prize in the BlizzCon 2011 machinima contest. Too Cute to Kill is an impassioned plea from Gnomes everywhere: Take the time to stop and kill the critters. If you don't, the result will be genetically engineered super-wolves that roam the forests hunting Gnomes.

This movie is chock-full of talent. Too Cute to Kill was inspired by Dark Legacy Comics. It was directed by Matt Greenburg. Irdeen fielded the producer role, handling the editing, special effects, and coordinating the sound design.

Too Cute to Kill is a fun movie, well worth the time it takes to watch. Kick back for a few minutes, put your feet up, and have a good time.

WoW Moviewatch: What Would Warchief Garrosh Do?

I'm not entirely sure what coincidence has inspired it, but I've seen a dozen requests this week for a re-feature of this video by Irdeen Productions. What Would Warchief Garrosh Do? was Irdeen Production's entry into the BlizzCon 2010 machinima contest.

Obviously inspired by South Park's love of Brian Boitano, a handful of Horde kids sing an entertaining anthem about Garrosh Hellscream. Now that we've had about 9 months of Garrosh under our belts, I wonder how many of us still think Garrosh is a great Horde leader. Regardless of my feelings about Hellscream, I do love this video. It's fun, fast, and packed with lots of jokes.

WoW Moviewatch: Boomdeyada WoW

You can't go for a walk down memory lane without stopping to enjoy Boomdeyada WoW. Originally created as an entry for a contest, Boomdeyada WoW has taken on a life of its own. This epic machinima by Irdeen Productions has achieved well over a million views on YouTube and continues to grow with every week.

Boomdeyada WoW does more than just parody the Discovery Channel's video. It celebrates the world of Azeroth with its viewer, throwing both punchlines and gentle jabs at our own community. It's a video that loves its subject and the rest of the world. I think if I had my way, I'd open up BlizzCon with a view of the video. I've not seen many single videos that shares so much enjoyment in just a few minutes.

WoW Moviewatch: Boom De Yada WoW

There's something we joke about in the super secret WoW blogger headquarters called the "BLIND timer." If we haven't posted a Moviewatch about The Craft of War: BLIND within every three to four months, we start getting tips and suggestions about the hot new movie featuring a blood elf rogue. That's the BLIND timer. It's a fairly natural phenomenon since WoW is constantly attracting new players, and someone brand new to the scene can't be expected to know every machinima that's happened in the past. Those new folks should get to enjoy the machinima that's come before, just like us old fogeys.

It seems that Boom De Yada WoW by Irdeen is likely to also be on the BLIND timer. I've received over two dozen tips about Boom De Yada WoW in the last week, which usually means there's an influx of folks out there who haven't seen it before. And if you're already familiar with Irdeen's masterpiece, why not take a moment and enjoy it again? It's just as awesome now as it was when it came out.

WoW Moviewatch: Boomdeyada WoW

Irdeen Productions created Boomdyada for the Blizzard Rise to Power contest. While the contest version of the movie is a little different, this final machinima is the one that Irdeen released to the world. The song and video is obviously inspired by the Discovery.com The World is Just Awesome series.

This video is just awesome. I don't have the words for how happy it makes me. In the same way that Discovery.com's original advertisements somehow instills a sense of awe and wonder in the audience, Irdeen has done exactly the same thing for Azeroth. Featuring dozens of cameos and landscapes, Irdeen has managed to convey excitement and appreciation for everything World of Warcraft. (For those with a sharp eye and ear, that is in fact an Oxhorn cameo also.) The voice actors include such well known machinima stars as Jesse Cox and Matt Geenburg.

Irdeen Productions should absolutely be proud of this video. It's got to become a favorite of many WoW fans, and I hope we see more like it when Cataclysm comes around.
