Getting into Brickfilm making

I'm currently into this kind of thing and I could have some tips to go along like what FPS is best to use and I currently use my iPod Touch's Back cam (5MP) and use Pro Cam 2 under the 16:9 setting until I could get a Decent Camera, what I could do to make brickfilms look good without ruining it. I also don't have a good place to start making it and animals could get the way and ruin it altogether. Whata are some advice I could take to get started?
