WoW Moviewatch: Redshift: Interlude

Redshift: Interlude is a prequel to the Redshift movie we posted for you a few days ago. Even though it has one character in common with the earlier story, the high elf Aislynn, it's really a story all its own. This Redshift series is shaping up to be about the ways in which predictions of the future influence the actual progression of events. At the end of this movie, there's even a hint of a future Redshift episode about a night elf, which looks interesting.

The maker of this movie, Sedrin, also did the astounding music video "Frame of Mind." He has an uncanny talent for making serious machinima credible and believable.

For those who are interested, "redshift" is also a scientific term that denotes the way in which stars traveling away from the observer are seen to be a bit redder than they actually are, because as they move away, the wavelength of the light they emit increases. This is just like the Doppler Effect, in which a car moving away from you has a deeper sound than a car moving towards you. In this story, though, it may be that "redshift" just refers to the way visions of the future seem to have this red tint over them -- yet on the other hand, perhaps there's something symbolic there too, that no matter how you look into the future, it will always be beyond your grasp.

WoW Moviewatch: Frame of Mind

This little machinima music video comes with a simple tagline: "Gear can be epic. Friendship can be legendary." Winning first place in the Ataris music video contest, this video is a pop-music version of something I like to see in art and films, sometimes called "visual poetry," where a series of images can convey a symbolic meaning which is open to interpretation by the viewer. It begins very much like many people must start out when they create their first character in WoW, and gradually progresses into something very different. What do you think it means?

WoW Moviewatch: Redshift

Here's a cute little story without any of the special effects you see in lots of the machinima people make nowadays. It's an amateur production, but it's somehow all the more lovable for it. Especially having read everyone's comments about why playing through the Horde's side of the WoW story can feel so good, this story reminds me of some of the noble themes people love most about the Horde's story -- unity in diversity, letting go of the past, and moving on with the future.

For those who don't know, the "vrriish!" sound at the end is the sound of a rogue's "sprint" ability being used, enabling him to run at high speeds.
