The gnomes are on the edge of a technological solution, and PvP is worse than ever before. So when the NPCs receive an upgrade courtesy of Ian Beckman and Jesse Cox, we get the chance to enjoy RoboGuard. I'm pretty sure this version is just as valid as any other remake hitting the cinemas. My fa...

Work warning: There's some language in this video, some scary and violent scenes, but it's mostly comedy. Just be prepared. Wow. It's been a long time since we've seen a video like The Hills Have Eggs. Created by Olibith, this movie features an amazing cast of voice actors including Jesse Cox,...

Around the Campfire is Wowcrendor's entry into the BlizzCon 2011 machinima contest. The movie didn't win, but I still think this is one hell of a funny video. Unfortunately, it's hard to talk about the plot without totally giving away the ending. I'll have to stick to some of the basics in this r...

Outbreak Lordaeron snagged second place in the BlizzCon 2011 machinima contest. You can see why the movie did well within the first few seconds. The voice acting and graphics are amazing; the action is well choreographed and fluid. Jeffrey Cuiper created the machinima, and the music was performed...

Wowcrendor and Jesse Cox teamed up to create this comedy spoof, Molten Front Ganker. It's been a year since Bed Intruder swept the internet up in its Auto-Tune glory, and the duo chose to celebrate that anniversary through a WoW parody. This music video feels like such a great idea that I almost ...

Goodnight Moon is a classic kid's book. Even if you've not read the book yourself, you've probably still heard of it. Essentially, the narrator wishes everyone in the world goodnight as he lulls your child to sleep. Wowcrendor was inspired by this classic book to create Goodnight Orgrimmar. In...

World of Warcraft is Dead by Jesse Cox and Wowcrendor is a response to all those folks who keep saying that the World of Warcraft is going to be over any second now. We all know those folks; we've seen them on the official forums for years, and they even lurk around the dark corners of fan and ne...

Jesse Cox has a lot of fans. Jesse's a great guy and incredibly talented; we've featured his work more than a few times around here. Jesse has a new series out in which he does a Weekly Review of the week's news. It's a pretty fun summary and is totally worth checking out. In a similar vein, th...

Remembering Characters We Lost in 2010 is a brief memorial video created in honor of those lore figures who helped make WoW a rich, engaging story. These are the faces (and corpses) that helped define our experience in the game before Deathwing burninated the countryside. Jesse Cox is the creator ...

A catastrophe is coming Kezan, and it will force hundreds of goblins to find shelter and solace in foreign lands. And while this could be misery, the wise and profit-minded goblin will take advantage of Azeroth's wonderful grub and rife opportunity -- or at least, that's the premise of Gree D2 by ...

Mushanga won the BlizzCon 2010 machinima contest with this video titled The Rocket of Love. It's the story of a gnome man who wakes up, falls in love, professes that love, has it rebuked, and finds himself inadvertently taking decisive action. This all happens within the span of about two or three...

Irdeen Productions created Boomdyada for the Blizzard Rise to Power contest. While the contest version of the movie is a little different, this final machinima is the one that Irdeen released to the world. The song and video is obviously inspired by the Discovery.com The World is Just Awesome ser...

Tipster Kerri clued me in to the Jesse Cox Voice Actor Video Demo on YouTube. This is definitely not the sort of movie we'd regularly feature on Moviewatch, of course, but it points out an interesting facet of machinima that we don't usually talk about. Namely, this video shows off the skills of ...

Creating a great machinima involves a delicate balancing act. You must use equal parts voice acting or visual expression of emotion, plot devices such as humor or fight scenes, engaging story lines, and proper editing and sound design, wrapped together in a neat little package. Too much of one singl...
