WoW Moviewatch: Here Without You

Dimoroc created Here Without You a long time ago. This YouTube version has been present since March 2006. That makes Here Without You one of the oldest videos we're revisiting. It also feels appropriate to Valentine's Day, considering its angsty, retrospective consideration of the romantic condition.

"This is the first machinima video I ever watched," Anne Stickney said about Here Without You, "and it completely made me fall in love with the whole machinima thing." It's easy to see why the video would inspire interest in the medium. Despite being filmed mostly in game with rudimentary graphics, Here Without You is focused on a character and his story. The plot's a bit hackneyed nowadays, but it was original when it was contemporary.
