Hi! I’m new here. I’m an AFOL, 50, father of two keen LEGO fans, and I’ve just written a screenplay for a Brickfilm music video, based on the song “Benny the Bouncer” by Emerson, Lake and Palmer.
My sons and I don’t have the resources to build or film it, but we can provide LDD files and images for characters, props etc. Any takers?October 2, 2012 at 10:35 am #418707
Let us know if you had finished the music video you’re planning to make. This site can really help us as we start making our own brickfilms.October 2, 2012 at 2:13 pm #418712
You people don’t actually READ, do you? I have written a SCRIPT – if anyone wants to make the film, they’re welcome to, but I don’t have enough LEGO to build the characters/sets/props or the skills to make the film myself!October 2, 2012 at 2:40 pm #418713
Simon – how long (secs) do you estimate your video to be? I can put out some feelers once I have an idea of the scope of the project.October 2, 2012 at 3:25 pm #418714
Hi! The song “Benny the Bouncer” is quite short – 2′ 18″. It is the story of a vicious nightclub bouncer who meets his match, in the form of Savage Sid, and subsequently meets his Maker. Despite this, it’s a funny song, with aggressive “mockney” vocals from bassist Greg Lake and some incredible boogie-woogie synth and piano from Keith Emerson, who will appear (in minifig form) in the video along with drummer Carl Palmer. You can find the song on YouTube (the original version from the “Brain Salad Surgery” album).
I can post my script as a Word doc.

Perhaps we can make this a community project. It´s just a suggestion though but it´s a possibility. You could put all your ideas in: http://brickfilms.com/forum/events-and-projects-forums/community-project/
I hope your idea will come to life!October 28, 2012 at 1:44 am #419763

Here is a link to my script in MS Word (doc) format.
I have made some LDD models, and I will post them too.November 22, 2012 at 3:14 am #420058

Hi Simon, I suggest it would be nice and more productive if you approach someone whose film in here is something that you really like with regards to animation, sounds etc. Then move on from there
