    It's a splendid recreation of all those moments in the campaign when Arthas turns into Death Knight. Lovely models used, environment great. I simply watched the uploaded video. Everything it's neat. Deserves an honest 5/5. :D

    I didn't find the story appealing at all. Also there are no custom models. Looks like a campaign ripoff.

    There is actually no sound either, I thought that it would be interesting to try to make the viewer immerse themselves in the visual details and make up it by their own.
    Also, since the entire map is in black and white since the map was made before color was invented, which I am bit ashamed of.

    No custom models? Did you even watch the video? FYI this is not a campaign ripoff, this is a RETELLING of Arthas' journey from Paladin to the Lich King, this is THE Warcraft 3 Human Campaign told in a cinematic perspective.

    Not bad, but having a mix of Warcrafty type models with more detailed models dosent really fit.

    I laugh when Mal'ganis try to say somethings when those dwarfs kill green guy out of nowhere. Transition between scenes are very smooth.

    Medivh disappeared out of nothing LOL

    uther too! the corpse of the of the peasant instantly decayed!
    the dreadlord uses his fly stand animation :(
    the barn and houses at the beginning have smaller doors than the characters are

    aside from that the cinematic is gooooood

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I faded Medivh out on purpose, same for Uther.
    They leave the scene but fading out is smoother.

    The animation is just random, it is not coded. If I were to record it again he might not use it.

    But yeah, a bit flawed.

    Cool recreation. Though in my oppinion the scene after the [defence of whatever it name was] (before stratholm) should be made to look more like a battlefield and not a village of sunshine and rainbows. Blood, ghouls and dead soldiers piled up, maybe even a fire, that kind of thing.

    Oh my god, someone should totally create a headless malganis for you and a detached dreadlord head for the malganis death scene. Yous hould also add a sound of an icy blade swinging in the air.

    It was meant to be a contrast, some light before things got dark

    Though lore wise it would be a bit more accurate that way, yes.
