  • Thanks for the good ideas and the link! I like the aluminum foil one the best as, at this scale, the wire ribbing and cooled hot glue might prove too inflexible. The foil and say an aerosol adhesive might be a suitable combination… but some testing will be in order…

    If anyone else tries this, using whichever method, would you please post…[Read more]

    There’s a big difference in being an artist and being an artistic jerk. You can be passionate about what you do and not venomus in displaying your ire. Rev has a good point, Blunty is a leader, a figure head, he shouldn’t act like some pissy little twit because others…[Read more]

    What are you talking about, California is the world! Australia, that’s where Sea World is, right? Just south of Carlsbad (LegoLand)???

    It’s not about the whining, it’s just the precautionary approach, making sure that we don’t infringe copyright and trademark laws, given that our entries may end up being included in a DVD that is to be sold for profit. I’ll let someone else go in depth about…

  • When working on a sequence, you’re not limited to jpeg format. You can save in .tiff format and then import that into your editor (make sure you number your frames sequentially when saving in Photoshop). I know After Effects allows the importing of such sequences and saves you from having to import several individual files.

    I agree with Buxton. Because of their location, the ‘scene’ is in shadow. So,…[Read more]

    Please let me know if you ever sell baseball/golf caps with the brickflim logo embroidered on it, that would be great! 8-)

    Customizable figs… pretty nice! One fig, many actors! :D

    and nice poster can i use it as a poster in my set?

    Absolutely, it would be an honor.

  • Nice set… and saw it ‘in action’ in your Soldat feature. I really enjoy ‘behind the scenes’ shots like that, really helpful in giving first-timers (such as myself) ideas for creating a functionable set to film on. Though I plan on using a lot of greenscreen there are some shots where I’ll need to ‘film on location’.

    I’d never heard about meccano before and did a search to find out more about it, is it like ‘erector sets’? Are the figs on scale with Lego figs?

    Amped, thanks for the compliment, hope you’re as generous with the movie when it comes out! :D

  • Very interesting fig… especially with the bendable arms and legs.

    Good luck with your film!

    Here’s one I made for an upcoming film of my own:
