WoW Moviewatch: Standing in the Way of Control

Standing in the Way of Control by Gnomechewer was an instant classic when it was released, and it's just as awesome this very day. Not only is the video amazing, but it combines with the song to absolute mastery. Even better? There's actually a story. I'll let Gnomechewer explain it:

Originally, it was an abstract re-telling of the whole Old Durnholde instance... until i realized I used Stormwind troops instead of Lordaeron... o well.

Basically, an Orc rogue goes back in time to ensure that Thrall is still warchief in the present... you know the deal.


Take the time to check the movie out and let us know what you think.

WoW Moviewatch: Super Duper Ultimate Edition Extreme

TotalBiscuit felt that yesterday's Moviewatch, Standing in the Way of Control, was "pretentious, all style no substance, and ugly as sin." However, I think he has Gnomechewer all wrong. This machinimator is clearly an experimenter of different ways to create his art. Call me biased, but I simply can't hate on someone that has a WoW character named "Coreyhaim", and did a spoof of a scene from Teen Witch.

Super Duper Ultimate Edition Extreme is just another example of his experimental style. He wanted to add a bunch of cool scenes together to form a mishmash of awesome. Set to a soundtrack by Notorious B.I.G., he has the Horde invading Westfall, dwarven pilots, rallying troops, and the Alliance singing songs of inspiration. With a portfolio as versatile as Gnomechewer's, I can't wait to see what he comes up with next!

WoW Moviewatch: Standing in the Way of Control

Miguel and Baron Soosdon have showed us the error of our ways. We somehow completely missed this amazing up-and-comer, Gnomechewer. He has a variety of movies in his arsenal, yet has very little recognition on Warcraftmovies. We think we'll be seeing more of him in the future, though.

Gnomechewer's latest film, Standing in the Way of Control, was named after a song by The Gossip, although the mix he used is actually a mashup with Elastica's Connection. The machinima is about an Orc rogue that goes back in time to ensure that Thrall is still warchief in the present. To get his story across, he blends art and model-viewed characters together to create a surreal effect!

[Thanks, Miguel!]
