The theme selected for week two-oh-six of Operation Graphite will be: Warcraft.


Did you hear that David Bowie’s son is directing a movie based on a massively multiplayer online role playing game? Sure, that may sound a little crazy, but a little more insight and it only seems slightly insane. Duncan Jones, made one of the best minimal sci-fi movies I can think of. Also the best sci-fi movie with multiple Sam Rockwells. This next film may be a terrifyingly huge jump in scale for Jones, but is clear he has tallent behind the cameral. But it is based on a video game? Before World of Warcraft, there was a series of real time strategy games that were set in the fantastical world of Azeroth. While light in story for the early versions, by the third installment, there was a rather fantastic story element and gorgeous cut scenes to move the gameplay along. When Warcraft leapt into the online world, the story continued. I have stayed the hell away from WoW because I knew it was digital crack, but I believe the story elements continued to grow. With this in mind, there certainly is a rich universe to work within. Could this be the first movies based on a video game that doesn’t suck? Do you not care, and just want to draw some crazy fantasy shit?

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Warcraft.

All art work is due 9 P.M. PST on Friday, 2.19.16. Submissions will be published the weekend of 2.202.16
