Bonus art and wallpaper

Given the vast amount of art and footage that went into Busted, it's not surprising we have some extra stuff, like this little picture:

Also, by request from someone with a big monitor, a nice large wallpaper featuring one of my favorite scenes...

Olibith Wallpaper

A ginormous thank you to everyone supporting us with votes and feedback! Several times, we nearly quit early, but you people are making me so glad we held together. And also glad that our intrepid sound guy didn't walk out on us, like we might have deserved!

Another wallpaper, for Caruu

First review

It's very exciting to have your movie reviewed by someone who makes great movies themself- and Olibith sure makes damn fine movies!

As usual, the crazy French gnome is a bit overblown in his praise, but I certainly appreciate it, and of course his giving permission for this madness...

Trivia: Olibith's voice was actually recorded over half a year ago for a scene in my Christmas machinima, 'A Warsong Carol'. It was a scene set in Warsong Gulch, too- but it was him saying "Sacre Bleu, they've got Tim!" when Tiny Tim was captured- and we all know what happened to him...

The contest has begun!

It's OUT! "Busted by Baron Soosdon and Pinkhair" on Warcraftmovies! (See rest of post for details or if you need help.)


Go vote for us! Well, vote for who you think is best. But I think that's pretty much just saying the same thing.

I marked which one ours is, since there are two other movies with the same title:

If you cannot see the stream, you will need the latest version of Flash Player(9.0.115 or 9.0.124)

Oh yeah...

Before I forget, the other WWI machinima I worked on, Disks of Norgannon, is out on Warcraftmovies... Check it out!


I did the ending scenes of Illidan and Arthas, echoing the fight scene from Warcraft 3- As Malu mentions, the movie was made itn under a week, so there was little time to do everything, but I'm reasonably happy with how it turned out anyway.

It's finished...

Of course, I can't show you the movie yet until the voting period begins, then I'll see about getting a link to it up here!


The Synergy contest is an interesting idea, where everyone uses one of two prewritten scripts and the results are compared. Given that the main purpose seems to be finding a producer for a project they have in mind, this isn't a bad idea- however, the scripts that were offered show some of the potential issues with the system. I'll be talking more about this later, but I'm interested to see what other interpretations besides ours people might have had.

I am looking forward to the people on WCM who don't read the contest rules and post comments like "Didn't someone else already make this?" given that, I imagine, most people who are serious will use the same script.

Much thanks to everyone who helped, especially Caruu, our voice actors, and Titanhoof for being a good sport.

And another one...

Interestingly enough, Drewbie's voice actor does not do the voice of the Drewbie character in Busted, but he does play an entirely different part.


More Busted pictures...

A few new pictures from the upcoming contest entry, Busted, which I am working on with Baron Soosdon. Caruu is tightening up his impressive sound design as we speak, and Baron's gonna crank up that Magic Bullet and get rendering with plenty of time to spare it seems.

We have some stiff competition, but I think we'll be making a good showing. If we do win, expect to see a behind the scenes featurette on the creation of this 8 minute lump of action, romance, and... well, more action and romance.

Final Warcraft VI remastered is out!

Though it was disqualified from WWI, the remake of FFVI seems to have made an impact, and I'm very glad to be part of it.

Train again

Sure, Amanda Dean didn't credit me, but my horde train showed up on Wow Insider today- and not on Moviewatch either, surprisingly... The picture is of an earlier version, before I did the interior, the animation, or the final texturing.

EDIT: Thanks for the attribution, Moo^_^

If all goes well, the latest installment of Azerothian Supervillains will be going up today, featuring some of my animation and background art- here's a picture I smuggled out of Ian's secret death fortress to reveal...

More when it's out.

Why do computers always crash in the middle of saving, destroying not only your current work but also the previously saved work?

This seems to happen a lot. And usually when there's a deadline.
