WoW Moviewatch: LockvsMage

Some machinima concepts are simple. They're not sweeping, dramatic stories with high-end graphics. These concepts are pure and streamlined in their execution. LockvsMage is one such video.

This is just a pride showdown between a warlock and a mage. (I couldn't help but wonder what Tyler and Christian would think of the display.) The video is clean, fun, and kept me surprisingly engaged through the whole thing. I loved the ending and the childlike wonder of the two characters showing off.

LockvsMage just shows how not everything has to be refined to the point of Hollywood quality. Just come up with a good idea, stay focused on it, and make it work.
