Filed under: , , , The Blizzard/Xfire-sponsored World of Warcraft machinima contest is happening now on the lovely Stanford campus in Palo Alto, CA. The event kicked off with a screening of the 1st and 2nd place winners for all four categories: Music Video/Dance, Comedy, Short Feature, and Drama/Action. The winners earned some pretty sweet prizes, like an Athlon FX processor, an XFX GeForce 7900 GT video card, and more. The Best Overall winner, Jason Choi's operatic Edge of Remorse (embedded above), wins a "top end enthusiast PC" worth $5,000, courtesy of that other processing giant, AMD. Congrats, Jason!We've embedded all eight winning videos after the break, along with links to the runners-up in each of the four categories.Short Feature1st Place -- Short Feature2nd Place -- Short FeatureRunners-up -- Short Feature
