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.


  1. Grats on the new blog! It was awesome making Ulduar with you!

  2. Hello Legs,

    I have seen some of your work before, but I got to say - this Ulduar video kicked butt. Very timely indeed. We are all of us just waiting for Ulduar now.

  3. +1 Totally Awesome

    Very nice work! Everything is so... spot on! The visuals are amazing, the vocals rock, the music fits... and the sentiment is so well captured. Bring on Ulduar before I succumb and step into the Arenas!

  4. Absolutely fantastic, so crisp and clean. You're very talented, looking forward to anything new you have in store!

  5. Hi Legs,

    I saw this only recently and have to say that I was blown away by the entire video. The parody song was perfect, the vocals were fantastic, and the video work was absolutely incredible. I've started trying to make machinima videos, myself, but am still in the beginner's ring when it comes to skill.

    I have Fraps and iMovie and that's about it to work with right now though I may have access to Premiere and/or Final Cut Pro soon, if I get some training at work. I've just downloaded Wowmodelviewer but haven't had a moment to load it up and see what it's all about. I have a //long// way to go.

    So I wondered, if you could give any advice to someone just starting out in machinima, what might that be?
