The Ataris machinima contest has gotten some really nice entries. I have no idea If I'll make it to the finals, but my absolutely favourite movies made by others are:
This one by Dead Workers Party
This one by Sedrin
Now.. if machinima.com allows the contestants to vote, I'll have a hard time between choosing those two. The DWP video is generally just so fricking cool and the video by Sedrin merges WoW and lyrics of the song together really well, not to mention the spot on editing.
Good luck to all contestants and may the force be with you. Dark side or the paladin side, your choice.
And then there's my summer job.. An one month break from making major machinima. As my job is not going to be that uberdemanding, I'm gonna spend time working on my dearest project of all: Chronicles Of The Dawn - Operation Scholomance.
Here comes the public announcement: I will be remaking part one with my improved skills. In it's current form I really dislike the movie and I am ashamed to show it to people. It has too many errors and totally too much cheese in the plot. And not using voice actors was a bad idea. I will tell more when I have the story written on paper and more things planned. You can watch the movie here.
The whole story arc of CotD will be a two-parter. To explain it better, it will be like two books (one being sequel to other) split into two parts. Four movies total. Big plan, will see if I get it done.
I've been thinking about CotD almost every day since I made it. What will happen to the charachters, in which order they start to die etc. I have ambitious goals for the project, but still I'm gonna keep my feet on the ground.
It's kinda nice to go back home for a while. I was also thinking should I go to the Tuska Open Air Metal festival (tuska means pain in Finnish). It's a three-day outdoor metal festival in the heart of Helsinki. Doing something crazy and spontaneous kicks ass, once I went on a Swedish cruise trip just like that.
Despite it's musical style Tuska is really one of the nicest festivals. I was in Tuska last time in year 2005 and I felt really boooooooored. I skipped Tuska 2006 since there was nothing interesting in the line-up and I was outta money.
The thing that got me interested in Tuska 2k7 is that Emperor is playing there. Motherfricking Emperor! A comeback gig. Emperor was one of the bands which I really wanted to see live when I was even more into metal. I still am but not that much. And this brings us to machinima again.. I've been thinking how would a black metal machinima look like. I don't know if one should be even done, since using WoW it would look comical :D
Yay, this is also the first random babbling post :D
