I Dig It: Live Action Minecraft

By Adam Smith on June 21st, 2012 at 1:31 pm.

Corridor Digital are wizards, harnessing their powers to make live action movie-magics based on them there vidjagames. They’ve tackled Minecraft before but their new short, Diamonds are Forever, could be their best yet. I do wish it concentrated more on the stunning blend of blocky vistas with real landscapes rather than becoming an action movie, but maybe expecting a travel documentary or an absurdist comedy about the tribulations of a life where interactions involve hitting things with other things really really fast was too much. It’s hugely impressive all the same. Enjoy.

Lovely. The first scene also reminded me of something else wonderfully enjoyable.

Affirmative.

    Pretty well made, but ugh, I dislike how almost every live-action video for Minecraft has guns in it.

      Yeah – way to miss the point of Minecraft.

      Agreed, an odd choice indeed. However, I felt they redeemed themselves with the line “I told you never to waste your diamonds on a hoe” :)

      My own little Minecraft live action experiments had no guns, but the next one will feature cars on a motorway though.

      This is another in a long line of Minecraft videos from these guys. It’s a story progression. They have en earlier episode where it shows the one guy create the shotgun so they can escape the overrun city.

    The wall and ground impacts from the ghast’s fireballs were pretty amazing.

    I’m always impressed by the level of amateur production on fan made stuff these days.

      I know, right? Have you seen their video Tether? It’s also quite amazing. I’ve never really watched web series before, but these guys totally have my attention now.
