Warcraft Movies

World of Warcraft is responsible for lots of things. Not only has it spawned an army nation of gaming geeks, but there is the merchandise, the expansions (The Burning Crusade, and the up-and-coming Wrath of the Lich King), the card game, the fan art, the roleplaying game and even a movie.

But WoW also appeals to the chap that sits at home making movies from game footage. Over the last couple of years, there have been contests and competitions of all kinds - some official Blizzard competitions, some third-party - as well as people making them "just for the hell of it".

The videos vary in quality, ranging from "something cobbled together" to "near-professional editing", not to mention the types - comedy, love stories, videos of someone showing off their skills, music videos...

Today, messing around on FaceBook, I noticed some daft Italian guy had a video on his profile (not his video, I should add) of a very good WoW Video. From what I can make out, it's an entry (and subsequent winner) of a Blizzard competition:

If you aren't a WoW player, have never seen anything about it - this guy has taken his character from creation, running all the way through, editing the models into his video. The bits flying around are screen elements used during play... All very well done.

Even if you're not a gamer, you have to appreciate the skill and time taken to make a video of this quality. And the song kicks bottom too!
