In order to curb down on the many I’m new here threads, all pre-existing threads will be deleted and future threads will be as well. This is the only thread.

So let’s get started shall we.

EX:

“Hey, I’m Droid and I just joined here. I hope to have fun.”

hey, I’m reeldp. I run EXOKID656 Productions. I enjoy filmmaking and brickfilming.

I’m here on BF.com because it was the original and I’ll help anyway I can even though I’m not on “The Mod Squad.” (Nice job, The Doctor. This site will be revived.)

I’d like to say welcome to all new and old members of http://www.brickfilms.com and hopefully (HOPEFULLY???… I know it will.) this site can become twice as good as it was before.

Hi, I’m badgerboy (call me badger, because I’m a man now :P ).

Ignore what it says to the left of my post, I am not an admin (as it also says in my signature). I’ve been here a fairly long time and I know the forums and its members pretty well. I lost interest in brickfilming a long time ago, but I still have an interest in film making and I enjoy working on movies.

Hey I’m Brik and I’ve been into making films and animation for a long time but I’ve only just started making Brick films (because I figured it mixes the two). So far I’ve only done some animation tests which really aren’t worth uploading but at the moment I’m working on my first full Brick Film which I plan to go for a couple of minutes.

Hi, I’m Rob. About 2 years ago I had an idea to make a movie with legos. I had no idea what I was doing (I was going to just take a bunch of still shots with my digital camera). I didn’t even know what a brickfilm was. Over time, one thing led to another and the script was neglected. I found this site a few months ago, and that was the impetus to complete my script. Now that the script is finished I’m trying to fulfill my ambition (finally). I’ve got several questions which I’ll ask in separate posts.

Hey, new dude. I own Madhat Productions. I’m not very good at the inside bits of scriptwriting, but my general ideas are for the most part hilarious.

Hello, I’m Aonghus of SquareShapedSoftness.

We’ve been filmmaking for a couple of years now but have only recently got into stop motion.

First I started experimenting with short intros for our regular vids. When that turned out well we jumped not so much in the deep end as out of a helicopter over the pacific…

We went from a series of basic, short, 7 second clips to a 6 episode web series with 10 minute episodes featuring about 30 characters. The scripts are finished, and production begins.

A teaser trailer/animation test is up on our youtube channel for anyone to check out. We hope to have the series done by the summer. Some may also be interested in our other vids.

Its brilliant to see such a huge community of fellow brickfilmers, this is certainly reassuring. Hopefully with your help we’ll achieve our mammoth task. :mrgreen:

Hello everybody, this is my first post, and I just had a few questions. First, I use a Mac, but have access to a PC and may run Windows on a future Mac. In the meantime, what is the best (hopefully free) stop frame program for Macs? :what?: I know MonkeyJam is great, but it is windows only, and I am looking for a similar alternative. Also, I have a (FireWire) iSight camera, a USB Dynex DX-WEB1C camera, a Canon Digital Rebel XS (10MP) and last but defiantly not least, a Canon XL2 MiniDV camera with FireWire……. which should I use? the XL2 has 4:3 and 16:9 modes, which could come in handy, but it is huge! :shock: (And probably, no, is overkill.) In addition, what programs are best for special effects? (Like rain, explosions, etc.) I realize gun shots and such are sometimes added with GIMP or PhotoShop. Mac or PC? Any help insight is great!

I don’t use a Mac, but I believe iStopMotion is a good and popular Frame Capture program among Mac users, the bad thing is I think it only comes in a trial.

Could you not dual-boot Windows and run AnimatorHD from there or something?

Yea, sounds like Windows for BrickFilming….. Good! An excuse to buy another machine! :D (It’s better than always rebooting….. And I can use a KVM switch, too.) Thanks for confirming that. Sigh… At least I can hide it under my desk! :computer: OR get a laptop, then I can bring it to my sets……
