It was good :)

A point that you could improve is the sound. I heard a weird sound even when you weren’t talking (was it done on purpose?).

Keep up the good work

so…um…did the gangster just come, steal the stuff ect, then give it to his boss or did I miss something. The movie itself is farely well done but perhaps the story could be a bit more developed.
If you could maybe you should add some more sound fx (like the armored truck as it drive along)

The story-line was not too deep. When you had a shot of his two guns remaining behind while he walked in, I expected that someone would pick them up and kill him with his own guns. That there would be a reason for the guy to drive a small tank. Sadly, there was no surprising plot element. Try to work on that!

Not many Lego films use rap music in their soundtrack (thankfully, for I’m not a fan of rap music).

As for the lighting: it looks like your light was too bright in some scenes. Did you use only one? Because there was a lot of shadow in other scenes, making it hard to discern what was going on. A second light, pointing at the set from the side, at minifig-hight, might help there!

Your animation was quite ok, though. Nice use of clear bricks for the guns!

I didn’t try the storey to bee too deep because I just wanted to increase my animation. I know I know, there might have been a few weird sounds comming from somewhere, but how can someone make a quiet film with a sister running around the house? lol.

Thanks for your comments. My next one will be a compy of Trading Spaces, but in lego.

Thanks again,

The one thing that had disturbing me all the time was the combination of live with stop motion.
Those cam-pan shos could be done in stop-motion. In that way you would have a fully stop motion movie.

I couldn’t really follow the story, but hell who cares.

The pixel quality was realy low, but I quess, it’s easier for you to upload the file.

Keep on filming!!! 8)

What do you mean? When the car was driving, the close up. I ran out of road and it was leaning off the desk, so i have to move a little with my hands so it would not fall.

Thats about all the life action I used. It was only about 2 seconds anyway.

First of all, the compression was bad. What codec did you use? it really ruined the image quality. you should use a higher framerate because the animation was choppy. Also, you only showed the front of the car when it was moving. The guns did not look convincing. try customizing the guns so it actually looks like a gun.

It is WMV. I have a good quality one on my computer. I wanted it to be a quick download.

[quote]you should use a higher framerate because the animation was choppy

I don’t have a digital camera. I am thinking of buying one this summer. The camera I use now does not have a stop motion feature so I have to press rec. twice very fast. If I moved the people any slower for better frame rate, the movie would be long and draggy.

Also, you only showed the front of the car when it was moving

There was a sound from the car. Actually it was quiet a quiet sound you might hear faintly. I could not find a loud engin noise that lasted the amount of time the car was driving. I didn’t have enough road pieces, so I had to film the car up close or you would see part of the table.

My guns. Thats all I have for guns.

Hey I’m just a kid!

so did you use a camcorder to film it? Was it analog or a digital camcorder. Because if its digital, you can use it with software to do stopmotion. Don’t get a digital cam. Get a webcam such as the quickcam 3000 or 4000.

Were you happy with your film? If the answer is yes, then congrats, you did an excellent job. It is easy to lose site of the simple fact that the film should be made to your liking. Does it matter that much to you if a bunch of people you don’t even know like it or not? The key to being a great film maker is to be the best you can be, no more, no less.

I liked it except some shots were out of focus and you could use more sound in someplaces.
