"Warrior's Dream" officially released!
It's done, it's done!
Not only are there shiny new segments and inserts to fill out the extended and polished soundtrack, there's an unbelievably fancy pants credits sequence complete with outtakes.
(Yes, Mazzranache did indeed dare to crash our film set. Stupid bird. And the reason for choreographed mass dancing female tauren sequence is due to the fact that we filmed on the 3.2 patch PTR... aka new druid forms patch. The tauren druid premade was female... and we rolled a lot of them. >_> )
I'm extremely pleased by Sedrin's additions and polish here. (so much so that I'm posting this all for him, omg see? >_< ) The three minute time limit on BlizzCon submissions was incredibly frustrating... even with this relatively simple story, it was a struggle to squish it all into the required time frame. The pacing on the extended version is much better... you are eased into the story, rather than thrown in on your ass. ;x Even something as simple as extending the final three chords of the instrumental by a couple of seconds goes a long way in completing the experience.
We had no intentions of posting the BlizzCon cut anywhere, since the extended version would have all the vitals of the original entry and then some. So you can imagine my surprise as I just went to check the BlizzCon contests page and noticed that Blizzard had actually gotten around to uploading torrents for each of the winning machinima films!
This led me to search "Warrior's Dream" on YouTube. Well, dammit. ;x
So there are a few stray copies on YouTube, which we're not going to do anything about. Hopefully the extended version will make the rounds and become more prominent.
