  • Celtx is quite a handy program for script writing. Just start writing and hopefully the inspiration comes along the way.

  • Hmm, I’d bluescreen it. But like saulgoode sad it’s probably better if you move the cam instead of the ship.
    [spoiler][/spoiler]Now, it is important that you move both the bluescreen and the camera each frame (unless you’ve got one giant blue-screen, then just move the cam). You should also let the ship tilt a little during the shot, in this case…[Read more]

    I Think Henry Selick is referring to the water that’s coming out of the fountain, while I was referring to the water in the base of the fountain where Jack emerges from. And I think they used two different methods for that. The water beam was stop motion like Mr Selick sad, but I still think that the water in the base of the fountain is later…[Read more]

    A tricky question Kingboy, looking at the shot I’d say that Jack was shot in front of blue screen and later added. And the water is definitely not animated, I don’t think they did it with the computer, digital water was still a difficult thing to accomplish back then. Although The Abyss pulled it of quite nicely fore years earlier. I think the…[Read more]

  • conquintor replied to the topic Longest Script in the forum General Brickfilming 9 years ago

    Hmm, Long movies don’t always need long scripts. My current film is going to be close to 80 minutes, but the script is only 30 pages. That’s because the only thing that’s in the script is the dialogue. The rest exists only in my mind, locations, actions, camera angles etc. But I think that you could easily write a script of 20 pages for a five…[Read more]

  • Loved the “we the brickfilmsers’ logo, loved the film, loved the ending credits, and I loved the music,:applause:.

  • Mont. Hermonicus

    The story is about Mont. Hermonicus, a 15th century witch hunter /priest who accidentally burns the wife of his landlord and therefore is sent on a pilgrimage to the Vatican. He’s helped by his sidekick Herbert and his noble master The Holy Postaatus IV. Together they try to conquer this perilous journey etc, etc.

    It’s goi…[Read more]

  • Well, it’s just the atmosphere of the shot, and London is very often portrayed like this in films. I think most people should give London as an awnser when you’d ask them where this was. But this also tells me that you can reflect the image you were having in your head into the picture, which off course is great.

  • I Agree, the first one is the best. The shot itself is great, nice lighting.

    BTW, Is it England? Looks like London in foggy weather.

  • I’ve been to Edinburgh once on vacation, and I liked the city very much. As a result of this I’ve got tons of photo’s of different parts of the city (including the castle). And at first I was thinking of making a set that was very much like the real Edinburgh, but in that case I would have to build al lot of different sets because I don’t have…[Read more]

  • Well, usually when doing this you make sure that the shadow of the part that’s keeping your minifig up doesn’t intervene with the shadow of the minifig itself.

  • yep, it’s one of my favourite books, and I’m using the appendixes a lot for references.

    As for your suggestion, that would make a hell of a movie which could probably enter the cinema’s right away. Perhaps one day…

  • I’ve posted one of these before, but the picture quality wasn’t very good. So I’ve uploaded it again, but with some other sets aswell.

    This is Edinburgh in 1465

  • I loved it, but there’s one thing I don’t understand; How can there be crickets when they are on open sea?

    Again, nice work on the special effects, The dragon looked great. But the language they where speaking, is that real Norwegian or is it some kind of made-up language.

  • [spoiler]Loved it, especially the pronunciation of the dialog by the characters. Very nice.[/spoiler]

  • You know, this would be a hell of a lot easier if you did it in the old fashioned starwars (blue screen) way. Most of the time it looks better, and it’s much, much quicker.

    But okay, it’s your movie.
