There is many way to play a video game. In a MMORPG, there is a lot of content for different kind of players.
But some players want more than this "official" content. They don''''''''t want to be limited, they want to go beyond the boundaries of the game.
These players are called explorers.
They try to know what is behind the mountain range, what could be behind a wall... They want to use the game mechanics for some strange results, they want to understand the game.
There is different motivations behind exploration, and each explorer is unique. But sometime, they gather to form guilds, clans, communities.
This movie is a tribute to every single explorer in the World of Warcraft game.
I''''''''ve try to film a lot of different explorers (more than 80) from different groups and guild, such as :
The Order of the Hidden Eye - orderofthehiddeneye.webs.com/
The Royal IdP Essploring Funation - ridpef.forumactif.com/
The Øxygen guild (EU - Illidan) - oxygen-guilde.com/
This movie has been filmed on official blizzard servers between august 2009 and march 2010. No third party programms ("hacks") as been used except Wow Machinima Tool. Thanks to Malu05 aka Mads Hagbarth Lund for this great little thing.
Hope you''''''''ll like the movie.
