You could easily be forgiven for not remembering The Grind from machinima-maker Oblivious Films: The series premiered way back in 2009 and has been quiet since 2010. While that's a long time to be gone, The Grind is looking to make a comeback with a new video, which hopefully has an "episode 1" mon...

It's been such an astounding week for some really great machinima that I didn't want to rerun just any old video. Looking back in the archives, I was reminded of Oblivious Films' Crueler Heads Prevail. An award-winning video in the 48 Hour Film Project, this dark comedy tells the story of a trouble...

Crueler Heads Prevail is a magnificent breath of fresh air. Pardon me if I employ a bit of hyperbole when talking about Oblivious Film's winning entry into the 48 Hour Film Project, but this video is so fantastic that I immediately shared it with all my friends. The voice narration is spot-on,...

If you've been following machinima for a while, you should definitely remember The Grind. It was a favorite of many fans for a very long time, and it's now come one the street with a new installment. With one of the best opening sequences I've seen on a WoW movie, The Grind: Episode 3 has been re...

Things You Need is a submission to the machinima category of the 48 Hour Film Project by Stone Falcon Productions, Oblivious Films, and Slashdance. It's a little raucous, and a little rowdy, so your mileage on this film is going to vary according to your taste. It's the story of a down-trodden gn...

The Rumpus Machine is the latest offering from Oblivious Films, of The Grind fame. It's the story of what happens when an easily-frightened dwarf and his friends stumble upon a "metal pig" which seems to grant their every wish. It's not a follow-up to The Grind storyline, but rather a new, self...

A lot of readers seemed to enjoy Ahn'Qiraj: The Movie yesterday, including Drewbie. He contributed a video that Macheath, his production partner at Oblivious Films, created about the opening of the AQ gates on the Malygos server. The process to open the AQ gates takes months, so obviously, the anti...

For fans of Machinima.com, Inside World of Warcraft won't be new for you. However, those new to the IWoW series will enjoy the three episodes out so far. It is a comedy news series (sometimes) starring Macheath, of Oblivious Films. Typically, the host spends some time telling jokes, then launches in...

(Update: Apparently Oblivious Films stopped doing them after the first episode and this was an in-house Machinima.com blunder. I stand by my criticism. Why hire Baron Soosdon, who didn't make this video, if they're not going to utilize him?) Those Oblivious Films boys are nothing but trouble. They g...

It's that time again where I discuss how not to make a machinima. Two months ago, I awarded Crap Mariner the 2007 ZOMG! That Sux! Award for his video effort. This month, we'll be checking out a training video of sorts that was designed to prepare the machinimator for his first real World of Warcraft...

A long time ago in a land far, far away, the boys of Oblivious Films decided that they wanted to make epic machinimas. However, Macheath had to learn Adobe Premiere Pro first. What follows is a video, Oblivious Hardcore, made about two years ago, before The Grind, their award-winning series, was cre...

In the course of my daily machinima search, I learn new things all the time. For example, I now know that I need a rainbow unicorn in my life, or the fact that Martin Falch can see into my SOUL! It's a good thing that I wore my tinfoil hat today, or things could have been messy. Inside World of Warc...

If you enjoyed yesterday's episode of The Grind, today's continues in the same fashion as our intrepid heroes continue their search for a way to defeat Onyxia. (Though if you're wondering where the story goes from here, there's not an episode 3.) And if you don't watch anything else -- skip to th...

Somehow this episode of The Grind reminds me a lot of my guild's last attempt at Onyxia... (Don't make the same mistake we did: just because you're level 70 doesn't mean she's a pushover!) However, instead of heading out to Dustwallow Marsh and experiencing Onyxia wipes for yourself, you could en...
