WoW Moviewatch: Tree Assassin

Tree Assassin is the new offering from Romire Vids. It's kind of an odd creation, a little out of character from his usual efforts. You might recognize some of the guest voice actors; Romire certainly has a talent for bringing together diverse YouTube personalities.

I had some odd trouble following the plot. It felt kind of disjointed to me, though it's hard to explain why. The submarine-like pinging sound during stealth moments was a funny touch, though.

WoW Moviewatch: Broken Hearted

Romire's new video, Broken Hearted, is actually a remake of a much earlier machinima. He's done a lot to clean up and improve the video. There's some new music, a new scene, and a retailored ending. Most importantly, he repaired the lag issues that destructively plagued the original.

This new video is a vast improvement over Romire's first attempt; compare it against the original and you'll quickly see the differences. The animation is much smoother and the world is well served by losing the glow-in-the-dark subtitles. I also feel Romire's new music choices are stronger; the music in the first version felt a little random, while the new soundtrack is definitely more thematic.

WoW Moviewatch: Gnomey Love

Gnomey Love is the most recent video by RomireVids. This is the story of a gnome who gets dumped by his human girlfriend and then punted to Azuremyst Isle. While on the island, he enjoys a brief, one-sided romance with a shaman before traveling back to Azeroth. Once home, the gnome falls in love with a new gnome girl because he likes big butts, and he can not lie.

Gnomey Love is an interesting video, conceptually. I can see where Romire was going with it. Romire says that he was challenged with technical problems during the video's creation, and I think some of those problems showed in the final product. Still, this was a significant effort, and my hat's off to Romire for his work. I would recommend grabbing a copy editor in the next round, however, to help minimize some grammatical errors in the script.

WoW Moviewatch: For the Horde: The Final Journey

For the Horde: The Final Journey is a sort of tribute movie about RomireVid's efforts to reach level 80 on his hunter. You can think of it as a kind of send-off, a trailer and a memorial all at the same time. RavenSylphe was clearly a collaborator in the movie, but Romire also thanks Cryssy, Wakagana and Sporcy.

The foundation of For the Horde is all right, but there are a few places where this style could use some polish. The voice acting didn't click for me, but that kind of thing is personal preference. However, I think using a consistent font for the movie subtitles would have helped it immensely. It's a bit distracting for each language flash to be in a different font style.

I like seeing how Romire is growing his videos, and it'll definitely be interesting to see where he goes next.
