Battle of New Orleans
Originally intended as a joint entry with The Janitor in the Brickfest 2003 animation competition, this film was finished more than 5 months too late. It uses the song by Johnny Horton “The Battle of New Orleans” and, for the most part, recreates the lyrics. A lot of effort went into set building and animation, not quite as much went into backgrounds and story-telling. Although it’s fairly different from the original vision, I’m very happy with the way it turned out. Brickfilms regulars should be able to spot a number of tributes to other films.
