Try again – I’ve fixed the problem and added it.
Could you add “.tv” to the domain list? I am unable to submit new films because of the same problem.
Why!!! This frustrates me so much with your films. I’d love for them to have that little bit extra.
Of all the elements of brickfilming, the actual animation is the least important to us. Not to say it’s unimportant, but in the limited amount of time available, it is at the bottom of the priority list. I admire the…[Read more]
furthur replied to the topic Mouth synchronisation – new directions in brickfilms… in the forum Animation and Effects 10 years, 9 months ago
Our initial attempt at mouths was the multiple head technique, used in our Johnny Cash video:
That worked, but the look was very crude, so now we try something else.
From Dave (who I do not allow to post in these fora):
When we shoot, anyone who will speak in that scene does not have a mouth so
it can later be overlaid as a graphic. We have often thought about…>[Read more]

I didn’t laugh at all, as all the gags were simple predictable, and there was nothing I haven’t seen in southpark before.
This film is a comic reworking of the Talmudic story of Yeshu, with the 1972 movie “The Ruling Class” as the most direct influence. Perhaps “South Park” also…[Read more]
As the writer of the film, I will give the backstory, which may help to explain the scene a little better.
Biff has struggled with dysthymia for the past five or six years, but with the help his friends and medication, has kept it under control. Last month, however, Biff lost his job as a system analyst at GloboChem. His depression…[Read more]
Now available at wdln.tv:
This bar fight scene occurs between Biff and Savannah’s meeting with the Fabulous Babe and Mario and Jane’s conversation with her, and uses non-Lego brand minifigs as extras. It was removed from the final cut at Mario’s insistence. “That scene had Coko’s pirate minifigs. I refuse to have those scum in my movie,” said Mario, a staunch Lego brand supporter. When asked if he thought Coko’s should be allowed to be in their own brickfilms, Mario replied “Sure. In hell, where they belong.”
Top 3 books I would like to turn into a brickfilm:
1. The Sound and the Fury by Faulkner
2. Lolita by Nabokov
3. Goonight Moon by Brown
Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake would be fantastic, but perhaps too difficult to translate to film.
I appreciate this brickfilm tremendously for having actual coherent dialogue, read clearly by talented voice actors. That is a rare beast around here. I also respect it for tackling a new subject matter and for obviously having a well-written script. Despite that, I did think it dragged a bit in the middle. An action sequence of some kind…[Read more]
