    Goooooood! (ever thought of that writing "good" like that may sound like a dragged out and frustrated "god"?)
    "The story of..." kinda caught my interest.
    I love origin stories, and there are many things in the warcraft lore that is left untold by blizzard.

    For example Felwood: There is no story about it was before it was called felwood.
    There is no background story to Maiev except that she was trusted with guarding Illidan.
    There is very little background to how Arthas and Jaina met except for that Arthas was killing some trolls.

    I'd like to see those kind of stories fleshed out a bit. :)

    So the contest would be something like: "Find a vague part in Blizzards lore, and flesh it out."

    EDIT: Hmm, this might be better for a short story contest though.

    My body is ready for this contest.


    War
    - Create a visual representation of the conflict between two or more warring factions in the heat of battle.

    Pilgrimage - Follow the hardships of one or more individuals as they travel through harsh conditions to reach a goal or complete a task.

    Growing Bond - Express the relationship between two individuals as they grow to become unlikely allies, friends, or lovers.

    A New World - Show the establishment or development of a settlement, city or kingdom as it flourishes to become something greater.

    All of these got my attention, they are open for many directions and very deep story telling. I would try participating in this if I ever find the time. Even if I can't come up with something very solid, it'll be an awesome experience. I love cinematics!!

    I'll put some ideas here as well.

    Discovering an ancient culture - Showing a huge ancient or an alien city, it can be already deserted ages ago, some examples would be, The space ship in Prometheus, or the huge underground world inside the mountains in Dark Souls 2 DLC (I forgot the name it was Sunken Ruins iirc).

    Time - The importance of time. It is told in Benjamin Button with a good scene; the narrator tells if X person didn't wake up 5 minutes late, she wouldn't have skipped her shower, if the car driver didn't have a fight with his wife in the morning he wouldn't have driven his car so mad. Then he wouldn't hit her in short. There are a lot more details in this lemme just attach the link if I can find it. Alright here it is: it's a bit different from what I told ya just watch it :D It could be told in a very differnt way as well, this is just an example.

    Life of a Warrior/Assassin/Priest/King - The hard choices they have to make. What they have to leave behind when duty calls? What they sacrifice from themselves, from the ones they love? The moral dilemma, and the conflicts they face. This can be open for many ideas imo.

    A choice based cinematic would be pretty interesting. Maybe 4-5 choices that impact the ending.

    Hmm that could work except for the "Legion's Arrival" which is to common...... But the "Survival of Azeroth" could work (Added to Suggested Themes)

    Space or Galaxy could work I guess I mean we already have Starcraft so... yeah it could (Added to Suggested Themes)

    I'm against specific characters background story, as it's very limiting for a theme. Anyway, picked War and Time.
