So, after Cold Winter, my mind and body were crushed and defeated. I was exhausted physically. Mentally. I was at rock bottom creatively.
It was around that time that I began playing World of Warcraft just to pass the time. I was quick to learn how easily if feeds and replaces your primal needs for growth and demands and wants and needs. I was sucked in pretty hard for a while.
Then, one day, I just stopped.
And I wrote a short film based on the addictive ability of the game and how it takes over the very core of your primal center.
I will admit, it’s not my finest work… but the message is clear and well, it may be nine minutes long, but the punchline and payoff at the end are totally worth it. It was a difficult shoot. People didn’t agree with each other. I couldn’t get anyone in the same place in the same time and ended up shooting scenes with actresses by themselves with doubles. It was a pain.
I will also always pride myself on this as MY contribution to the viral realm of videos. We quickly broke ONE MILLION views. And now the film is teetering on the brink of two million.
I will also pride myself on being the only person able to pull a world of warcraft player away form their game for nine minutes and forty-four seconds.
Here it is in it’s entirety.
