WoW Moviewatch: Ask a Warlock, Episode 1

Moo Money

On WoW Moviewatch, we regularly ask for and blog about user submissions. However, not all of the submissions are what we would call ... impressive. Such is the case with Ask a Warlock: Episode 1 - "Why is the what?" According to his show page, though, the poor soul actually asks for feedback.

Ask and ye shall receive, young warlock! First of all, we'll start with the premise. He solicits questions on his blog and then answers them in video format. Ask a Warlock is obviously a WoW knockoff of Ask a Ninja, which is a much better production. Maybe you're trying to emulate Ask a Chola, who isn't even a real chola, but the point is that you'll need to improve your schtick. For a much better example, see Ian Beckman's Ask an Assassin.

The next criticisms are towards the video itself. The aspect ratio jumps every time, which I can only assume has to do with the fact that you model viewed instead of actually filmed in-game. In addition, your voice just isn't assertive enough. You're putting on a production, not having a casual conversation. Where's your delivery?

I don't want this to be a hatchet job, because I think that WoW players would actually watch something like this. However, there are some definite kinks that need to be worked out before it can be successful. What say you, readers?
