As if running around with a rifle-totin’ dwarf accompanied by a faithful Ice Claw Bear sidekick named “Glace” and a plucky, if useless, mechanical squirrel wasn’t fun enough, the folks at Blizzard have announced they’re holding a Scenes from a Movie Screenshot Competition starting yesterday.
World of Warcraft Scenes from a Movie Screenshot Competition Lights, camera, action! From 12:00 noon PST on Tuesday, December 7 through 11:59 A.M. PST on Tuesday, December 14, we will be accepting submissions for our World of Warcraft Scenes from a Movie Screenshot Competition. This is the big break all you aspiring actors have been waiting for—all you have to do is recreate your favorite movie scene using in-game characters. The best performers will get their screenshots and character names posted on the World of Warcraft community site and blizzard.com home page! So gather up your cast, break out your director’s chair, and start the shoot!
The little sample pic they provided is, of course, a recreation from the movie Titanic. Doesn’t look like you win anything outside of a bit of fame with fellow WoW players, but it should still be a lot of fun to see what folks come up with.
Seeing as I’m once again making an entry related to WoW I’d like to ask a favor from any of you who are playing the game. I’m in the process of starting a small guild on the Durotan server named Alpha Squadron (bit of an inside joke among those of us starting it) and we’re a little short on the required 10 signatures on the charter it takes to get it established. If any of you would be willing to log into the Durotan server long enough to make a gnome or dwarf character and sign the charter I’d be most appreciative. You don’t have to continue to play on the server or stay in the guild once it’s established, but you’re welcome to if you’d like. The only reason I ask it to be a gnome or dwarf is because I can get to the newbie areas for those races easily enough, though I suppose I could also get to the human newbie areas at this point as well being that I’ve been hanging out in the city of Stormwind lately. I think we’re currently short about four signatures. This guild is purely going to be a group of people who like to play together rather than any kind of a highly regimented, out-to-be-number-one collection of uber players. If you’re interested in helping out let me know. The name of my character with the charter is Balfour and he’ll be trailed by the aforementioned bear and squirrel.
Now, if I could just find a Moose to tame it’d be perfect.
