Their logo is just a 1/4 slice of a lime with light coming through it.
That actually sounds pretty classy. Subtle is good.
Pretty good, and an amazing commitment to refilm it after losing it all.
Most of the weaknesses have been discussed and I agree with them (rushed end, shifting frame size, long stills) but they don’t detract much from the whole.

I’ve watched about 90% and this is my favorite of the bunch by quite a margin. Nicely done.
Creating a selection with the Lasso tool is much easier than the line method. Create a couple Actions that fill, add glow, etc and you can do up to 5 or 6 simple frames a minute.
Kirk would take down Picard so fast Warp Speed would feel like Yugo Speed. Picard would still be trying to -think- of something while Kirk was throwing blows.
And Macs suck.
(Not really, they’re actually okay. But as a mostly PC user I just don’t care about Macs. Or arguing with Mac zealots. It’s like a religion to them–Benlen’s post is so…[Read more]
The SE looks fantastic. It’s better in every one of the original scenes than we’ve ever seen.
People can quibble all they want about the new material added. I like some changes and don’t like others.
But saying it looks anything other than the best looking release ever is really biased by unrelated factors.
PS. If you hate it so much,…[Read more]
This whole tempest in a teapot is a complete deja vu of T posting a film a couple months ago and Bluntman posting a review that reached a torturing-bunnies level of venom that made for really distasteful reading. It all seems so calculated that I can’t imagine that if the film were pretty good we’d see a Bluntman review with a positive gushing of…[Read more]
I enjoyed this one quite a bit.
But the bit after the credits wasn’t so hot.
The lighting and setup are really good in your before shots. For various reasons, my shot isn’t quite so simple, and my lighting is much worse.
But I think the main difference is you used a digital camera. I’m limited to my WebCam in this case and worse yet it’s live video in motion. I did another shot completely digitally in…[Read more]
Those stills look pretty good–I’d be interested in seeing the before pics and hearing about your process. I’ll post some details about my bluescreen issues when I’m at home later tonight. Too much typing for work browsing…
The best brickfilm bluescreening I’ve seen is in Jay Silver’s Rise Of The Empire. Lechnology’s Star Wars movie also has…[Read more]
I’m working on my first big film so I’m very new here as well. My advice about greenscreen is to avoid it at all costs. It seems like it should be fairly straightforward, but it incredibly difficult and time consuming to get it to look good (in the freely sofware at least.)
I recommend concentrating on learning stop-motion, storytelling,…[Read more]
Basically, it’s a formatting issue.
DVD-Video: This is what you want to play like a DVD you rent from Blockbuster. It will be burned on DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, or DVD-RW media. For all intents, the compatability ratio with all of this media is pretty similar so you don’t have to worry too much. Players over 3 years old is where you might start…[Read more]
Good stuff. Your animation and picture quality are much improved.
My favorite joke was the prying suit.
maybe a “Previous Feature Films” link right under the current feature film link?
Diplomacy III – June 2004
Then you could see when it was updated and what films have already had that honor.
Technically, it’s well done but I didn’t really laugh so it kind of failed storywise for me. It felt like the obvious jokes–it’s mildly amusing when it happens off the cuff in real life but when a comedian uses them as a routine it just falls flat.
The joke was actually pretty funny but it’s very much an “in” joke. Fortunately, (sadly?) everyone on Brickfilms is probably in.
I enjoyed your other clips more.
This is kind of like the prologue in some books where the author is really the only one who thinks it’s necessary. Not really bad, just not really moving things forward. And the action bit and effects weren’t bad, but not nearly as nice as some of your other clips.
I liked the effect and song in the credits…[Read more]
VideoMach 2.7 does not cost money for non-commercial use. When the 30 day trial ends the button changes to “non-commercial use” and you can continue using it in that mode forever.
Could be wrong since I don’t have one, but I think the CCD in the QuickCam Pro is 640×480 so the 1024 is just scaled up in software which could effectively be done better by a DV camcorder or PhotoShop style software.
I couple of the HAT entries had a pretty decent water effect using plastic wrap. I think they were Daedelus & Icarus, and Imagine That.
I really liked the low-tech effect Leftfield used in The Great Disturbance and to a lesser effect in Alibababad.
