My Wishlist of Movie Makers, Likes and Dislikes
Before I start, may I just say that some people have been intentionally/unintentionally stealing my ideas and thoughts. I had the movie making idea rundown in my head about a week before Ming made a post about the rogue and his "most entertaining TBC video yet", I was also thinking about mentioning why movie making criticism should be taken in a positive way and should be the main driving force in how to improve yourself as a player a while before, like I mention later in this post. Anyways!
I really want to get more people movie making in the local community, I also want to encourage new movie makers to have a go at making something even if they are hesitant. At some point in time i'd really like to take my time in writing a guide with some hints and tips for new moviemakers. So now its time for the Vashj players whom I think are worth calling out for one reason or another, be it for the content of a current movie they've done, or a request for them to make something.
Vashj honorable mentions - I'll list some Vashj names that I think are worth a watch, or ones that would be worth a watch if they put out a movie in the future. Stars are the one to look out for
Sypher, Creato, Yuber, Jorl, Ambergo, Trotanoob, Kamiklees, Atec, Whisper, Lubbo, Thirin, Konaz, Chidorii, Bartkn
* Sypher (James) you did a good movie, props for it. it was actually one of my favorites from all Vashj videos. Great example of how to make an exciting movie through the use of good music and playstyle combined. One thing I'd like to see in your next movie though, is a better introduction, or a more story-based one, other than that, great job. Maybe we'll play in the same Arena team in Season 2
Creato you did a nice job, you improved allot towards the end, though you always have something annoying about your movies that stops them from being great (too much panning and cropping in the first) or speeded up TOO fast for the ENTIRE duration of the second movie
Frein - You are a good warrior, with one of the best reputations on the server, however your inability to make an entertaining movie is pulling you down and I think you need to work on this. Make something that the people want to see, No one wants to hear that music in a video, and step up the pace a bit, don't take this as a diss, rather some constructive criticism! Also to quote "When (if) I make another movie, it will probably be strictly arena PVP because it hasn't been done as much and it gives a better view on good players versus good players combat." - It has been done heavily actually, and will continue to be done much more than World PvP, its the easy route to take, but each to their own
Yuber, why didn't you make a movie? It could have been awesome. You were one of the best rogues and you had R14 and awesome gear for a long time, a wasted opportunity by not putting anything out, make something on your druid! Everyone knows your a good player, so why not show them what you are truly capable of?
* Jorl still needs to make a movie imo. Undoubtedly the best mage on Vashj and one of the first too.
Also an awesome guy to talk to, knows everything that needs to be known, and unlike Chrynarx, who only talks the talk,, Jorl also walks the walk. So oldschool that most players don't even know who he is because they weren't playing when he was around.
Kamiklees - Stop being lazy and wake up at the right time of day, set out to make something really good, you have the experience with both your character and video editing to be able to put something out thats potentially great, so why not do so? Put your bubble where your mouth is! Also i've heard a lot of people claiming Hubris is a better paladin than you, whats all that about, I thought you were the best Paladin on Vashj?
Thirin - You're one of those rogues that I always mess up on badly if i find you in world PvP, props for having that effect one someone, regardless of this though, I know you're a great player generally speaking, you have been that class for a long time, yet you seem obsessed with taking those PvE "epix" from 24/7 farming in a guild full of PvE clicking peasants in Forte, and you've done it ever since you left Epic. Why not go for the fame or do something thats worthy rather than wasting your life in repetitive instances banking DKP? You know you want to
Konaz - A really good & slightly insane player, it doesnt matter what class you play, you know he'll master it and be one of the best, since you love to PvP, a movie should have gone hand in hand with you & WoW, so pick one of your 5 level 70's and make a movie with it :)
I would recommend anyone from the local community to start making PvP movies, especially if you are interested in the whole idea of doing so, always aim to improve with each movie you release and learn from your mistakes, through trial and error... Don't see peoples negative responses as a personal attack on yourself or your playstyle, see it as ways to make improvements and better yourself as a player and movie maker. If you'd like any advise on movie making, please feel free to ask me through comments or other forms of contact, I'm not sayingim master, far from it, but I'll try and assist if you want any advise
