    Hi all! My name is Jason Steele, I am the guy from (legotronn posted my site here a couple weeks ago, that’s how I learned of these forums, through checking my site’s referral record).

    Anyway, I have just finished my short movie “The Legomatrix”, which any of you whom have seen “The Matrix Reloaded” will probably appreciate.

    Medium-Quality QuickTime
    39.5 Megs – QuickTime Motion JPEG compression: …

    Low-Quality QuickTime
    17.7 Megs – QuickTime Sorensen 3 compression: …

    Low-Quality MPEG-4
    18.5 Megs – MPEG-4 Compression: … rixlow.mp4

    To save any of these movies to your hard drive (in case you don’t have the proper web plug-in), you should be able to right-click the link (or Control-Click if you have a Mac like I do), and choose either “Download Link To Disk”, “Save Target As” or whatever it’s called on your web browser.

    I believe the QuickTime version requires QuickTime 4 or higher, and the MPEG 4 version requires either QuickTime 6 (not sure if 5 will play it) or any newer version of Windows media player.


    EDIT (6/28) – Now all versions of The Legomatrix are available from Brickshelf, including a new low-quality Quicktime Sorensen 3 version.

    Nice CGI animation, liked all the slow motion parts, looked cool. Nice! Keep it up! :)

    Pretty good, an enjoyable, yet unrealistic film. First of all, I don’t like CGI lego animation, as it doesn’t seem quite right. Oh well, that’s just my opinion, so I’ll try to review this movie without opinion.
    Sound 2.3/5
    Fairly good music, it fit the action on the screen well. You lacked sound effects badly though. Definetly a weak spot.
    Visuals 4/5
    Smooth, but it is a CGI. Nice effects and design. The ground and background could have used more work, but overall, pretty good
    Story/Plot 1.4/5
    There really was no plot here. Just a little bit though, and it didn’t do much for the movie. If it was a test, than it was pretty good.
    Set Design 2.5/5
    The background, as I said before, was rather bland and eveidentally flat. The characters were fairly decent though.
    Overall(not an average):5.4/10
    Good, but lacking. Don’t be discouraged by me though, a bit more time spent on this could have resulted in a much better film. I”m no expert with CGI, but other CGI movis I’ve seen were much more realistic and had better editing. Good luck on your next film, bob

    Thanks for taking the time to review my film, LoganArts.

    On the sound aspect – I do have a version with sound, however it just didn’t seem to flow correctly. It really took away more than it added, unfortunately.

    As far as the plot goes, it was created as a tribute to the Neo-Smith fighting scene in The Matrix Reloaded. So yes, it doesn’t actually have a plot.

    And I completely agree with you that more time spent could have resulted in a better film – this movie took me all of 4 days, including modeling and rendering times, whereas most animated shorts take months to years 😀

    Anywho, thanks for the feedback!

    Wow, 3 gigs worth of data transfer the first day “The Legomatrix” arrives on my website.

    I’m uploading it to Brickshelf right now to use as a mirror to offset the bandwidth.

    Out of curiosity, does anyone know about how long it takes for Brickshelf to authorize and post uploaded files?

    It depends. Some of my films were cleared within a week, but I’m still waiting for “il est midi” to be cleared.

    Deep-linking will work, though.

    About your film: I liked it better than the original! I loved the brick wall used as background, and the blurring in some parts of it. You really captured the feeling of that fight well.

    Well, I don’t agree with you there, but it was still awsome! It’s a very well done little short.

    I understand about the sound effects. Although they work a lot of times, some films are just better without them.
