WoW Moviewatch: World of Workcraft

This is an older, beloved machinima by Lagspike Films called World of Workcraft. Yup, that's totally Oxhorn's voice you hear; you can recognize that bearded tone anywhere.

World of Workcraft was a pretty novel idea in its time and the machinima has stood up to the years incredibly well. The opening sequence's over-the-top heroics launch you immediately into a world of adventure, making the fuzzy transition into the world of mundane that much more wrenching. All in all, the machinima enjoys great technique.

If you've not seen it before, check it out. If you already know it, watch it again. You'll be surprised by how good it is, even now.

WoW Moviewatch: The Orchard


We first talked about the BitFilm Festival 2009 Machinima contest when we featured La Terroriste last week. With the clock running out on the time for votes, I wanted to mention another machinima entry for this year's contest. The Orchard is a horror-genre movie from Dan Ross (otherwise known as Lafawnduh). Dan is the same creator who filmed The Ultimate Snowdown.

The Orchard
is an incredibly well-crafted movie that is deeply steeped in its own genre and moody atmosphere. I particularly enjoy how the story is tied up without an obvious, author-determined morality applied to Margaret. The video is well worth the time, and Dan should be applauded for his artwork.

Ultimately, I wish good luck to La Terroriste, World of Workcraft, and The Orchard in the BitFilm contest. While WoW.com obviously has no stake in the contest, I think all three would be worthy winners. Good luck, folks!

WoW Moviewatch: World of Workcraft

When a group of dragon slayers spend all day killing and saving villages, how could they possibly unwind? They log in to World of Workcraft, of course. Whether the assignment is making sales calls, reading reports, or dealing with the epic boss, these guys are prepared, but will the new guy fail them?

Lagspikefilm, creator of the hilarious Thrall's Crib parody, has made another film that is both funny and genius at the same time. However, the film has multiple branding from WeGame, is not available on any other site, and Oxhorn voice acted in it. It looks like Oxhorn may not be the only one on the WeGame payroll.

[Thanks, Tumnus!]
