That’s too bad about Frankenstein, but it wasn’t that unexpected to me. It’s much better for a brickfilmer to watch, because he can get over the fact that legos are doing the acting and appreciate the work put into it. First time viewers of brickfilms don’t expect suspense, they think it’s charming when a figure does anything. I’ve shown people Frankenstein and had them giggle continuously, while I was creeped out by it.

That said, I’m glad they liked my joint entry with Nos. Although the breaking through the ground part was, I felt, not as good as other gags, it’s still cool that they enjoyed it. I expected Blambo to be very well received, and I’m glad to know the audience liked it.

Yeah, it was pretty much a joke.

The “Freeeee meee” could be replaced with a chipmunk/helium voice, the sound effects could sound all cartoony, Frankenstein’s voice will be replaced with that of a child’s, and etc. Though it’s possible Nos may not share my weird sense of humour…

:lol: That sounds awesome, but somehow . . . naah :P

ha! Nice photo. Revmen, if done right, will look a lot like Cillian Murphy

The Leftfielders! What a cute bunch of kids!

I believe the leftfielder on the the far right is Elvis. The one on the left next to Elvis is Dwayne, and I don’t remember the name of the third leftfielder.
ANd everyone else looks cool too.

Indeed a shame (about Frankenstein), but I’m not really surprised. Frankenstein is a horror film; many people don’t like horror films, little kids especially.

Man, I wish I could have been at Brickfest. It would have been a truly memerable occasion. BTW Rev, how many brickfilmers (from Brickfilms) were there?

My count is 11. The eight in the picture plus the two guys from DJ Films (Joe and Dave) and then there was Idiotless. That’s who I saw there, did I miss anyone?

I don’t know what to say! :P

The picture shows, from left to right, Dwayne, Leftfielder, then myself.
In front of Dwayne is “Bookwyrm”, who voiced C3P0 and the Mad Scientist in SW:TGD.

Don’t worry Nos. I’m sure that, if those mothers knew you worked on both films, they would have hated Flux & Strength Man just as much.

I can’t even begin to understand why you would write something like that. Probably most of them would have enjoyed Frankenstein if it wasn’t sending their children into hysterics. And I don’t know why you’d naturally assume that they’re all so close minded as to immediatley label everything thing else made by the same director as something to hate and detest.

I can. You just have to read it with this statement:

Wow. At least Flux & Strength-Man! has my name on it, too.

And know Comet’s sense of humour.

I’m surprised. Even if some people don’t liek horror films, I’m surprised at their reactions to Frankenstein. I would have thought people would laugh at it and make fun of it for trying to be scary.

I’m finally home. weeee.

In addition to those pictured, I also met Doug (Shootin Bricks) and Idiotless. Jared was there, but he left before I had a chance to greet. Doug made it a point to pop in on Sunday before leaving to meet me, which I really appreciate.

The fact that Frankenstein was able to make so many people upset is a wonderful thing. It shows Nos was able to cross the “yellow-smiley-head” barrier and truly immerse his audience in his film.

Unfortunately it’ll probably be the last time a film of this sort is shown at BrickFest. Next year (if Christina lets me do it again) I think that, considering the audience, I’m going to lean heavily towards light-hearted and funny films to be shown. At least on Sunday. The crowd that was there was not ready to learn about film-making. It was mostly young children accompanied by their parents, and they were there for “cartoons.” Hopefully next year we can have a different viewing for BrickFest attendees where all of the “good” films can be shown without fear of offending any minors.

After reading all this…maybe it was a good idea I was unable to finish my entry. :? I don’t think parents would like for their children to be exposed to spousal homicide and murderous entities. Hmmm…

Oh well, kick ass job Nos! You rule!

The Brickfest crowd never really seem to react as we expect. This boils down to one simple fact. “they” are not our audience. they never have been. They never will be. And I couldn’t be happier. the sort of tightly focussed, closed minded “fanboyism” in groups like those we see at brickfest, (like linux-preachers, mac-groupies, etc.) are not the type of people who ever really apretiate creative works on their own merits instead of trying to cram them somehow clumbsily into their narrow world view anyway.
It has been some time since I either looked forward to, nor cared about how “they” will recieve our art.
The audience I want to reach are those people who seek out creativity, revel in it, people who know the value of play. people who watch movies AND read books AND buy comic books, AND watch flash animations AND browse deviantart AND play with lego AND video gamers…
