Peoples' World Of Warcraft Avatars In Real Life

Note: Video is after the jump because the background music is kinda depressing and I didn't want to bring everybody down on the main page.

This is a video documenting the lives of four World of Warcraft players as portrayed by their avatars as the go about their day-to-day activities. It's really artfully done. Not unlike the nude shots I just had taken. Kidding, those were pure smut.

This is short film directed by Gavin Kelly we worked on a while ago called "Avatar Days". What makes this one special is the fact that it was filmed, vfx'ed and comped all in just 4 days. It was made as part of the "4 day Film" catagory in the Darklight Film Festival.


It follows 4 MMORPG players taking about their online persona's. As they tell their stories we see them go about their everyday lives against the mundane backdrop of city life...but as their Avatars.

Cool, now they just need to make a movie about me and my avatar. Just sayin', you ever seen a Link lookalike stare at a computer 14 hours a day? SUMMER. F***ING. BLOCKBUSTER.

Hit it for the video.
