Movie Making in WoW - MMORPG.com

Blizzard has launched a new site in an effort to help aide the artistic community in the production of World of Warcraft videos.  To start things off they have posted a Guide for Fair-Use video creation.

Since World of Warcraft launched in 2004, the staff at Blizzard has watched enthusiastically as the community pushed movie making in Azeroth from an unexplored, unproven experiment to a broadly utilized and intricate craft, producing thousands of videos ranging across every type and genre. Opportunities such as BlizzCon and other movie contests challenged community artists to push the limits, and time and time again, players stepped up to the plate and delivered memorable works that turned heads not just in the Blizzard community, but in the digital filmmaking community as a whole.

Short films produced using World of Warcraft have been shown at film festivals internationally, winning awards, garnering recognition, and reinforcing the notion that filmmaking in our virtual worlds is heading toward mainstream audiences. To nurture the advancement and growth of this young artistic community, this site has been established toprovide resources and insight helpful to the ongoing development of cutting edge videos crafted from the World of Warcraft experience, and to say with resounding clarity: Blizzard is a fan of your works.
