Hello all. After a long time under-wraps for various reasons I can finally bring this one out into the fresh air! Fans of World of Warcraft, this one’s for you.
This is a short film I worked on a while ago called “Avatar Days”. What makes it a little bit special is that the whole thing from filming, to vfx right through to compositing was done inside 4 very sleepless days and nights. I was part of the team on this one alongside John O’ Connel, Will Sharkey and director Gavin Kelly.
The documentary follows 4 MMORPG players talking about their online persona’s as we see them go about their daily lives against the dreary backdrop of an overcast day in Dublin city…as their Avatars!
This one picked up a few awards along the film festival circuit and was definately a fun one to work on. The bottle of “Kick” the Mage is holding in the queue is the same one that kept me awake helping make this sucker.
EDIT: Big thanks to Danny O’ Dwyer from CitizenGame.co.uk for featuring this on their front page. Cheers man!
