My first blog post on my first blog… yay!
So, I’m a Swiss machinima director, mostly making music videos using World of Warcraft.
That said... Cranius asked me ten days ago if I was willing to help him with filming a music video for the song “Ulduar”. He sang this parody of Timbaland’s “The Way I Are” together with Summergale, who also wrote the hilarious lyrics.
The first time I heard that song I was just... hm... let’s say stunned. Although that doesn’t quite express how I felt. Anyway, I knew I just heard some pure awesomeness, with very professional voices and sound design, that would be a huge hit.
It goes without saying that I accepted this challenge.
It was an insane week of filming with Cranius at night and editing the scenes at daytime; sleep had to wait because we wanted to have it done before the actual Ulduar patch was here.
We filmed on several servers, including the PTR for Ulduar scenes, transfered and leveled chars and Summergale recruited guildmembers to help. Although it was hellishly stressful, I had a great time making that video.
