Thisis going to be very ironic if the person with the light flicker has light flicker all over his set…

Then obviously if someone has light flicker, they wouldn’t be making the light flicker class.

Unless whoever makes a lesson wants to demonstrate by example what light flicker is.

Any thoughts on how the lessons are organized? Anyone have other ideas of, say, where walking technique should go.

Let’s start developing the General category. To me, four lessons doesn’t seem enough for this category.

└ Introduction/Overview
└ Lighting
└ Timing
└ ???
└ ???

What else should be included? I’m not sure about set design. Does it go under general or should it go into a different category? How about camera manual settings? That seems more fitting under cinematography.

This is why I want to get things categorized and make sure all possible lessons have been thought up.

I’m totally down for this, but I don’t think that my films are outstanding in any of the departments listed. Could “Comedic Writing and Banter” be one? Cause I think my film has some good examples of that.

Humor is relative, in my opinion, but if it can help, this would fall under Writing.

Yeah, see, that’s the thing. While my writing has drastically improved in the two years since my last brickfilm, my previous writing wouldn’t be stellar enough to display in a showcase of the best-of-the-best teaching people who are new to the craft.

Sorry this isn’t a General lesson but I have another lesson for writing; Character Development.

So, is this still on?

Yes, I still like to have discussions going. However, with other projects going on right now, it won’t get much further than discussion and some additional development for the time being.

I transferred my draft scriptover to the Patrons’ Script editing utility. It should be viewable by Patrons at This was done more to test out Script’s sharing capability than to provide any great benefit to this project.

Looks like that Error message is affecting everyone. Anyways, based on the draft script, it sounds more like an FPS course than an Introduction.

I think it needs to be broaden to an overview (like when a professor hands out syllabuses at the start of a course that summarizes what he/she will be teaching) of what the hobby is.’

Essentially, put less focus on the smooth animation and bring up a couple common areas in Brickfilming. I can’t think of examples that would work for the introduction, though, based on this scenario you’ve written, i.e. how to bringing the topic of camera, lighting, special effects, etc.

The last part of the draft with the mannequin demonstrating what the host says would be a start.
