Post-Blizzcon 2009

Thanks for the eloquent update there, Kirlune. Really, I just got tired of seeing my old Sedrin Head dominate the log ad infinitum. But I digress. Blizzcon!

Our three-minute fantasy music video won 3rd place! It was so heart-pumping to hear my musical score piped through the massive convention hall. There were two other "music video"-style winners as well, and the grand prize went to the young machinimator X-Cross; I was very excited to see him in the spotlight (see previous post's comments). Without further ado, here are the winners!

GRAND PRIZE
A Day in the Life by X-Cross Pictures

FIRST PLACE
Don't Make Me Get My Main by Legs and Cranius

SECOND PLACE
Cruel, Cruel Moon by Mike 'Spiff' Booth

THIRD PLACE
Warrior's Dream by <slashdance>

And because there weren't any categories this year, the runners-up unjustly received no recognition from Blizz. I'll try to expand the following list as I discover who else had quality entries.

Now, regarding Warrior's Dream: Much like I did with Redshift: Pursuit, my entry for this year will be getting some additional work and polish before I release it. Right now, it plays like an action movie trailer. The final version should end up being quite a bit longer than three minutes. Watch my Twitter feed for updates on that process, and you'll find the final product here, and on all the usual distribution channels.

Sweet, looking forward to see it ^^. Anyway, I just found this entry the other day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Erio4mgXanE

Looks really cool but the guy would need to get some better voice actors IMO cuz I got a hard time hearing what they say. Anyway, it's cool for being his first real machinima, I really enjoyed watching it.

I would love to see Warrior's Dream posted somewhere for our viewing...any chance that might happen soon?

Might it happen? Absolutely! Soon? Ummm... I can't give you a definite ETA. I want it out ASAP, of course, but this is coinciding with the startup of work and school. Best advice is to keep tabs on my Twitter for updates. ^_^;
