Over two years in the making, my buddie Martin Kazimir (Kazo), officially launched the World of Warcraft parody movie titled BEYOND THE REAL LIFE by Almost Done Productions.
You might remember Kazo. He interviewed Richard A. Knaak in 2007 to ask questions submitted by Blizzplanet visitors who wished to learn more about the novel World of Warcraft: Night of the Dragon. The video interview took place at Istrocon 2007 in Slovakia. Later, I met Kazo in Paris during the 2008 Blizzard Worldwide Invitationals where Blizzard announced Diablo III. He recorded video of the event for Blizzplanet.
Beyond the Real Life is a fan movie set in World of Warcraft universe. It’s a comedy / parody of WoW’s game mechanics, players, characters and lore, combining machinima with live action shots of real actors to seamlessly blend together the in-game and real life worlds.
Beyond the Real Life tells a simple story. A Human warrior Tank and his gay Paladin friend Bubbleballs set out on a quest across the continent to save Tank’s new girlfriend from an Undead mage N33d2getl4id. What adventures and situations they get into is the heart of this 45 minute movie in which almost every shot is a combination of in-game items, characters, or environments with real life footage and special effects.
Making this movie has been a lot of fun and we hope that the community will enjoy it as well. We wanted to create something funny and nice to look at, trying to improve on the successful prequel called The Edge of Real Life, which debuted years ago and to this day counts more than one and a half milion views on Youtube.
