Not exactly unfamiliar with acting like an ass in regard to business opportunity, this site’s ownership was mentioned in regard to another suit….
The Video Professor’s court filing ups the ante on two other suits spelled out in the aforementioned Westword article. The first focused on Albany, New York’s Adirondack Manufacturing Corporation,…

And I guess we made “contracts” with brickfilms and not with Rev, right?

It’s not a purse or a satchel or a handbag. Technically speaking, as was created for the Indiana Jones line it would stand to reason it’s a depiction of the bag used by the character in the films. In that case, it’s a MKVII British canvas gas-mask bag. That was the type used in all three (and…[Read more]
“Film Brain” wrote: …the Brickfilms Award for Film Arts
In light of the discussion and revelations revealed in this thread/a this name and the use of the “brickfilms” term therein combined with the use of this site’s forums and chat to organize and carry out implementation would in all likelihood constitute trademark infringement. Of course,…[Read more]
Apparently he’s a hermaphrodite. He’s got breasts and is wearing women’s clothes (note the buttons on the shirt).
The torso is from a female figure in the Adventurers’ “Dino Island” collection.
A simple question. What the hell is happening. It seems brickfilms is down quite a lot lately.
Agreed – this is beyond ridiculous. We are trying to sort out the hacks on the sites hosted by BF (no easy task) and we are also upgrading to a new server. I received this email from the hosting company on March 6:

No, as I’ve stated many times before I gave up animation back in ’95 (or at the latest early ’96, I didn’t exactly mark my calendar at the time).
In addition to the lists above, I also purchased the following:

(1) Prisoner Transport

Clever use of camera angles can eliminate the need for extensive sets or backdrops. Establishing shots can utilize stock real-images to set the scene. Further as you’re using Lego for stop-motion, even shots which travel within a scene can be accomplished by reconstructing the set as you go (should your supply of bricks be inadequate for the…[Read more]
To cut off any possible problems ahead of time, there WILL be a MoB 2008 featuring a format similar to the last. That means any film wishing to qualify will be required to meet the same restrictions as last year. One change I am incorporating is the ability to do live screenings provided those screenings are not part of any other competition. …[Read more]

While I do own a bunch of old Lego sets dating from 1980 through 2002 (mostly the old Town series from my childhood in the 80s as well as the late 90s…[Read more]
Historians get paid well? Send me to whatever country you’re living in! Sadly, no, we don’t get paid well. In fact, high school biology teachers get paid more in some states than university history professors (of course, remember that cost-of-living varies in different regions).

Catholics and Mormons are Christians.

Well, it’s a good $3000 slimmer than it was before, that’s for certain. I’m still trying to figure out where I’m going to store all of these boxes (I hate that Lego packages 500 cubic centimeter of Lego in a box that could hold five times that amount).
Purchased in the last month and having arrived as of this morning…

While there are earlier claims to the title of “first” brickfilm, the one that stands out to most people would be The Magic Portal. Perhaps something to that effect: the Portals, the Golden Portals, etc.
Mass Media in a Changing World **
Directed by: Jeremy Markowitz
Year of Release: 2008
Mass Media in a Changing World is an unusual type of brickfilm. It’s apparently a social commentary but the thing about it is that left me trying to figure out just what the filmmaker was attempting to say. While it appears clear enough on the surface,…[Read more]
BAFA is a horrible name as well. I realize being from England there’s a natural affinity to emulate the BAFTA awards but forcing acronyms which doesn’t make sense when spoken out (not abbreviated)* isn’t necessary. Just give them a nickname that actually sounds like something or come up with something that isn’t forced. Back in 2006 I believe…[Read more]

I just noticed there is no “best animation” category. This seems to me to be essential.
Is it? Technically speaking, stop-motion animation is a visual effect just as CGI is. I see your point in differentiating though and a technical…[Read more]
