I'm the new editor at FileFront.com and I'm doing an article on what makes a good, user-made WoW video/movie/tutorial. I wanted to get some opinions from you -- the diehards. So please, chime in with your thoughts on what makes WoW vids work, what makes them blow, and what kinds are your favorites.
Things that make WoW videos suck is the same type of jokes you hear in everyday around you, or in my opinion, the videos that try to be really serious and dramatic (since it's near impossible to create a dramatic or engaging fight scene in this game). The best videos I've seen have been really good comedy type ones, like "Leeroy Jenkins", "Heeehaaaw nice guy", and one with a troll and some human falling in love that I can't remember. A good soundtrack also helps, last thing we need is another lame video with Godsmack or Linkin Park playing.
Personally, having only lpayed about 2 minutes of the game at me mates place, an awesome part for a vid (i.e. victory dance for undead) they all start moshing/playing guitar to some metal music or braveheart style.....being mooned by a whole bunch of people...lmao. But really, i dunno....what could you actualy put in the vid? I mean there's obviously gonna be killing in there...but would you add other parts??? such as a bit of fishing....oh i guess you'd have to have many characters one of each race and class...so it shows a bit of everything
I only download wow videos if they contain information which I could use. For example strategies for battlegrounds or something like this. I'm not so interested in other videos.
Good Qualtiy. Good Music. Good Players.
It's that simple.
i think what all WoW video's need is a basic outline, the ones that suck dont quite have one. so here goes... Comedy Video : 1 dummy (the stupidest one) 1 leader (someone who tries to take charge) 5+ peons (people just there for the show) 1 really smart guy 1 obsticle that everyone can relate to (like in Leeroy Jenkens how Abduhl said it was 33.33333% of survival, meaning its not likely they will survive, yet they did it anyways) 1 really corny dude (someone who tries to be funny but everyone tells him to shut up) 1 tolken guy (is known for 5 or less sayings)
I think the video's need is a view of what the game has to offer.
