    After Winstons made the frankly ingenious Predatorcraft I spent quite some considerable time considering movies that might be done in the same way. The mixture of zero voice acting and in game production ("filmed" as opposed to, well, crafted I guess) is oddly appealling.

    I had no luck with an idea and promptly gave it up.

    About a week ago I'm stumbling through durator, inserting arrows into various mobs, when I come across a Night Elf Mohawk and suddenly it all starts to take shape in my head.

    I am currently working on Rockycraft, a machinema reshoot of Rocky 3. Here's a sample scene (which I'm editting for a 3rd time right now, gogo obsessive behaviour):

    I've roped in a wide variety of suspects to help out with various parts (it's largely being shot with level 1 dudes, so anyone can fill in for anyone), but I could use a few more hands or indeed hooves. I've got a few "crowd" scenes coming up (which are hilariously underplanned) so I need large numbers of fictional bodies, and I am likely to ask for oddly specific help (Example: at some point I need a tauren DK with blue fur to stand in sen'jin while a level 1 human punches him) over the next few weeks.

    Thought I'd let you know what I'm up to, sitting in strange places at 2am. If anyones interested in lending a hand (word of warning: "filming" is pretty tedious), gimme a shout, but otherwise, don't be suprised when I ask in /g for a raid full of low level trolls to decend upon a small town. It's all part of the process.

    Currently on the lookout for a D.I.S.C.O., as well as any other holiday/tcg toys that can be placed around the place. I have a brewfest keg somewhere about the place, but there are parasols and all sorts.

    Just some crowd scenes and the fights left to shoot! (ie: the tricky and the complex)

    I want to have a crack at a short crowd scene.

    I'll try to poke people who've offered help individually, but anyone whos free this evening (as in monday 14th), has access to a male troll (that's not a death knight) and would like to see a brief glimpse of said troll in the film, I'll be rounding up volunteers at about 10pm game time (It has to be night!).

    With a bit of luck it'll only take half an hour or so.

    If anyone know of or indeed is one of the trolls, and I've failed to mention you in the credits, let me know and I'll reupload with the amendment (I had names written on random bits of paper!) before I whack it on warcraftmovies and the like.
