    Hi guys,
    I just wondered if you could tell me what Brickfilms was like, way back when. Like what it was like, and who was there. :)

    um, who were brittany and allison? And what the heck is fight club?

    I found this site similar to the way Lewa11 did: i looked on google for lego movies or something like that. (this was after the lego studios page went down.) I poured through several sites looking for lego movies, and spent hours on the subject. And then, finally, a site called brickfilms. Hmm? what’s that? *clicks* and bingo.

    I remember Brittany and Alisson.

    Fight Club brings out the best of us.

    Come on! A grim reaper with a katana blade for his scythe.

    I’ve been here forever. I remember when I was Quad J Studios, and I wanted to make the first hour long lego film, and I’m currently lucky that I’ve even made one atleast 3 minutes! 😮 I found the site after looking at the official LEGO Studios site, I was hoping to see other films made by LEGO fans, so I looked on google for LEGO movies, and I found brickfilms!

    You remember the Allison/Brittney trolls?

    yes they were there. ask Shootin Bricks, He cleaned them up real good. (He had god on his side 😉 ) If you don’t believe me. check some of his earliest work.

    But really I set up a simple time calender, Some of you might not agree with it, but it helps me remember things.

    It’s BBA and ABA

    BBA= Before Bluntman’s Arrival
    ABA= After Bluntman’s Arrival

    I joined 1 month BBA

    and now it is 1 year and 3 months ABA understand it yet?

    I don’t remember how I found this site, but what first got me interested in lego animation was on newgrounds. I bought my intel cs110 about, 2 years ago, and it remained in the box for another year, till I found brickfilms. My desire to animate has somewhat dimmed over time, but hey, I’m still here. I can never really find an idea that makes me “want” to animate (hmm…perhaps Sunday I will finish something I started 3 months ago, well, it was finished, but I never liked it, so never released it publically). Basically, lack of motivation. I have seen many people come, few of them go. Some I’m sure just plain forgot about the site. I plan on being here for quite a while longer, or atleast till I move out of my parents house and cannot afford internet access.

    Does anyone else remember the “Ocean’s Eleven Trolls?”

    The side of a truck? Did someone have it written on it, or like a sticker of some sort? Who was it?

    I have been here for almost a year….
    I found this site on the side of a truck…….
    yes …..a truck…….

    anywho…..
    the site like DFB said….
    has only changed as much as any movie-type-forum would.

    (alot)

    lots of the ppl who were here before……..
    (will not name them)
    have just stopped showin up……………

    but most still remain….
    others are just lurking now………

    the only thing that has really changed
    ….is the quality of the movies and films….
    (sorry ’bout the elipses……it’s how I write it)

    Wow- has it been two and a half years already? 😛

    It was very much like it is now- only a LOT more confused.

    The few people who knew anything about compression weren’t around to help the rest of us who didn’t.
    There was no DIVX and I had to find out about Real Producer from my fifteen year old nephew who had to help me to find the link hidden from mortals on the Real website. Not to mention that most of us still hadn’t faced the truth about Studios.
    It was frustrating.

    Fortunately there were some glimmers of light- Thomas Foote’s Bricks in Motion provided valuable info and links to such useful (and free!) software as Axagon and Videomach, without which some of us would still be lost. 😀

    It was exciting too- we shared the feeling that we were on the cutting edge of something new. For me it was fulfilling a childhood dream of making my own cartoons. I still get those feelings- it’s what keeps me going.

    I can only imagine what it’s like for new people who come in to find an organized forum with a complete FAQ and hundreds of movies to watch and learn from.

    It’s not over yet- I predict someday others will ask you what it was like in the ‘old days’.
