This music video from Baron Soosdon shows off his pioneering use of MMO-based video capture and editing, model and map exports, animation editing, an agile team of collaborators, and the use of multiple game platforms.
Note the subtle tribute to Riot Films' "Edge of Remorse," an example of the emergence of a new palette of video production, as well as references, in recent WoW machinima. -- HEL
"Welcome to my fifth music video! This time L70ETC has a guest singer - a blood elf female. My goal was to create a cool "band playing" video with a little drop of Rock'n'Roll credibility - hopefully I succeeded :)
My first plan was to make a video with the traditional line-up of L70ETC but then I heard this song and realized that it was a challenge - the orc has already been used some times so let's do something new!
Avoid the YouTube stream if possible. It makes people sick with it's low quality. Don't be a paladin (unless you are Shepiwot) and download this movie like real men and women do!
This musicmachinima is also a step further in the cross-game machinima genre. The charachters are from WoW, but the video also uses background graphics from Unreal Tournament 2004 and Half-Life 2.
I do have plans to make an other video (sometime in tge future) with L70ETC using the orc as singer, most likely to a Ministry or a Turmion KÃ¤tilÃ¶t (it's a Finnish band) song.
There are also guest stars in the video - Big Daddy & Little Sister from Bioshock make their way in to the world (of Warcraft).
If you look closely, you can also see some model changes by Snoman, Dopefish, Lev and me.
Those interested can read a more in-depth "Making Of" about this machinima from my blog.
Music used: Flyleaf vs. The Legion Of Doom - I'm So Sick (T-Virus remix) -end credits- Darude - My Game (JS16 remix)
More movies by me: Nub-Blog Special #2: Nethervale Part two in my blog-only series. Featuring the model change Nethervale by Lev.
Sunday Break: A My Burning Valentine Tribute My vision of the MBV model change by Dopefish.
Unlimited Escapism vol.0: Shock Your Senses Trailer It is coming, be patient! The movie is now about 95% complete (it has been sitting that way in my hard drive for a while) and I will finalize it as soon as I have all the parts needed for it.

No matter if you are a noob or a pro concerning all things machinima, come chat with us in #machinima at Quakenet! More idlers needed :)
Remember kids - like Dopefish once said: "Sharing is caring! Spread this movie!"
She HAS a name and wallpapers! The blood elf singstress got named Animia Everfrost - thanks to everyone for the name suggestions!
Also, there are a bunch of wallpapers available from the movie, those interested can download them by clicking this.
Looking for.. ..people who can turn those utterly sexy oldschool Amiga / C64 or similar retro sounds into music.
I have a soft spot for retrobleeping, and I would love to have something like that for my short intro which would be have it's premiere in the next machinima I release.
So if retrosounds are your friend and you know how to press the buttons on composing programs, please send me a PM here or contact me via irc, thanks! :) Ja sama suomeksi.
Kthxbai once again!" -- Baron Soosdon, from WarcraftMovies.com, http://www.warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=47383.

Soosdon Does It Again
Baron Soosdon is ultimately one of the premier WoW machinima artists and editors out there at the moment. His movies are wonderfully interpretative and visually stunning - and all of this with WoW/gaming models.
I'm So Sick is no exception and I find myself watching it over and over. He outdid himself this time and it was nice to see a work of his that used music lyrics as most of his work encompasses electronic/ambient sound.
