Welcome to the age of internet censorship.

Ok - try this link, and see if it works:

http://wow.joystiq.com/2012/02/06/wow-moviewatch-ill-fight-for-you/

One thing I notice from the original post - it was a YouTube video, and now it's on Vimeo. So, it should work.
I think.

We are now lvl23.

There have been no further suggestions for celebrating lvl25, so we will be proceeding with the video idea.

My current guidelines for this:

1. Length of approx 5 minutes.
2. As many people participating as we can manage - even if you're just online for the ding.
3. Please note that purchasing the Lion mount requires Exalted with the Guild.
4. Those with good computers - please consider dl'ing a video recorder (wegame is a decent recorder, and has no nagtag) as it would be nice to have some other video other than mine.

I have a decent computer these days although I will admit my video card is under-strength. I'll look into Wegame and see what I can do.

Also I've said this before and I'll say it again...I dont think we want the lvl 25 video to be our first attempt at making a video.

Therefore I strongly suggest we get a practice video in the works. Storyboard it up and lets put it into production. We are bound to run into unanticipated difficulties, and it will help make the lvl 25 vid when we do it that much smoother because we'll know what we are doing.

Also I did have another idea, but I need time to see what I can do with it. Mum's the word for now...

I've been listening to some of Two Steps other tracks on YouTube, and think I've found one that will suit the length I'm shooting for. I'm at work right now, but will throw a link up when I get home

Here's the one:

I'm not sure I like the start, but once the other instruments kick in, it's quite epic sounding.

Ok I finally watched the link you posted before this one. I liked the visuals...mostly. Some were kinda...WTF? But the overall vibe was one of: "These are the people in my guild. Doing the silly, weird, unusual semi-awesome things they always do, and thats why I love em."

I liked the STYLE of the music, but not the music itself. I view all Toto songs, but particularly that one with deepest loathing.

PS: I should probably also mention that Journy songs make me want to hit people with a broom handle. =)

....repeatedly.

However...yes, I picked up that vibe from the video as well. Which is one of the reasons I like it.
This has been a very busy week for me, work wise. When I come home, I haven't much interest in doing much other than logging on and unwinding enough to eat something and go to bed. As a result, I haven't accomplished anything to do with the video, other than some thinking. A couple quick, fun things I thought up have to do with Brix transforming into a Furbolg and scaring everyone, and the other has to do with Aizi transforming (as he likes to do) into the Blood Elf, and all the Female toons chasing him. Quick little fun things to add into the mix.
I also need to make some small changes to my ui (particularly on Jinky) so I can record and perform actions without having the ui on screen.

Gnomish minds think alike. =) I was just thinking this morning about what I'm calling in my head "visual jokes". Your image of Aizi transforming into a Blood Elf and then being pursued by a gang of women is precisely the sort of thing I was thinking of. Perhaps a series of these sorts of light-hearted jokes about being tiny, and the inherent advantages and disadvantages of being so, interspersed with scenes of us doing epic/fun things as a guild?

In fact I can see Aizi attempting to impress an attractive Gnomette Engineer. He /Flexes. She ignores him. He drinks a potion to transform into a Blood Elf. She /Facepalms. Suddenly he finds himself surrounded by Dwarf women and flees with the Dwarves in hot pursuit. Gnomette /LoL's.

I imagined an opening scene with an Orc Grunt patrolling the ramparts of Orgrimmar. He pauses to look out over Durotar...Orc territory as far as the eye can see. *Female Gnome Giggle* The Orc looks down to see four or five Gnomish ninjas gathered around his ankles. *EPIC STAB!!* Orc falls down. Gnomish ninjas bounce up and down cheering. Hooray!!

Later the same scene is played out in Thunderbluff with a Tauren with the same result. Then perhaps we end the video with the Gnomish Ninjas ambushing something really big like a Fel Reaver or a Grunn. *EPIC STAB!!* Pause... *RAWR!!!!!* Gnomes flee with the monster in pursuit. Cue Yakkety Sax and Roll Credits.

Yesterday, I updated Vegas, and started puttering around working on the Orgrimmar scene. I had no available slots left on WrA, so I made an orc on TB, ran him all the way to Org, and proceeded to do some filming. It's not great filming, but suitable enough to capture the essence. Once I remembered how to trim, it was much easier. I thought of just starting with the view of Durotar and the subsequent ninja attack before the opening credits.
I have, however, hit a small (uhh....pun intended) stumbling block for the ninja attack. This being the giggle. The full blown version of Vegas has audio editing built into it, whereas the version I have doesn't. So, as it stands, the only way to get the giggle in the scene is for a gnome to be there.
Another ....er...small snag would be the ninja gear. A look-alike can be put together by doing some farming. The rogue hierloom collection would be an acceptable version. However, not all classes can wear leather. Would an acceptable alternate dressup be simply a White Bandit Mask? This would require no elaborate farming, and would still convey the ninja aspect of the scene. It would also have the benefit of allowing the viewer to see (most of) the faces of our gnomes.
I'm also thinking - if we want to do some filming outside of Horde cities, would it be possible to enlist Sio's Horde guild to not only provide us with our ninja victims, but also give us some protection? The victims in question would only need to be lvl 1. It'd be nice to be able to do all this without Local Defense being triggered.

Next: Aizi and the female Dwarves. I'm thinking we'd need anywhere between 5 - 10 Dwarves for this. I also think it'd be fun to see them chasing him through the other scenes we film, but in the background. Perhaps even a Coda; after the final credits, we see them still chasing him. So, we will need some Female Dwarves for this. If we want to see them in the background of other scenes, they should be of a level that can travel to said locale.
