WoW Moviewatch: Mage v Lock

Mage v Lock is the newest video from Swathe Productions. This is what they say about the video themselves:
Thanks to Christian Belt of WoW Insider, The Daily Blink webcomic and the WoW forums from whom we drew some inspiration for this machinima. Please note that if you don't play a mage or a warlock you probably won't find this as entertaining as you would if you did.

This video might feel a little rough to some folks, but hold out until the end. It's all building up to a punch line. That punch line does kind of put our relationship with our raid frenemies in a humorous light, so it's all for a good cause. My hat's off to Swathe Productions for another fun video. I'm obviously a huge fan.

WoW Moviewatch: True Guts

We've featured Swathe Productions before now. Their previous movie, Murder on the Booty Bay Express was a lot of fun; it had both a bit of literary weight, some great WoW flavor, and a whole lot of spirit.

The mother and son team have recently released a new movie, True Guts. Inspired by the John Wayne classic, True Grit, this is the tale of a lone game master who wanders the countryside of Azeroth in a never-ending quest to stop gankers, bots, and ninja looters.

Like Murder on the Booty Bay Express, this video is a nice little homage to the original. I really like what Swathe Productions is doing; not only is it awesome to experience creativity as a family, I think machinima is a nice way to grow into storytelling.

WoW Moviewatch: Murder on the Booty Bay Express

Murder on the Booty Bay Express is a parody based on Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. The video obviously borrows heavily from the original, although I think most folks will enjoy the WoW interpretation.

This video was created by a mother and son team, which is an absolutely awesome thing to see. The idea of a parent and child working together in pursuit of something creative and fun is something unto which I must tip my hat. That's a great idea, and I bet it was a whole lot of fun to do. Here's hoping we see more from Swathe Productions.
