Just for you, I’ve made a more-compressed version of the movie, and stuffed it. (.sit format – you’ll need Aladdin Stuffit Expander to open – which should have come with your web browser)
It’s 4MB big, which hopefully is small enough for you. If not, let me know and I’ll try to make it smaller. This file will only be up for about a week or so.June 27, 2003 at 7:29 pm #6614

Normally I advise against long credits like that, but I really like how you did them.
Good work, overall, but set design is lacking.
A sky should be easy to do, and building building around it should be fun for a LEGO enthusiast.

To tell the truth I did not liked it… I know, how hard it is to model in 3d and then animate it all, but it could really be better. It was very unrealistic. The background was not very good… And also you had to add there some sounds… BUT as I said before CGI animation is nothing easy, so for your first Lego CGI animation it was good. ( it was first, right..? )
The next time try to make it more carefully, and you will have great results!July 6, 2003 at 1:48 pm #7357

For the backgrounds I used Bryce 5, for the character modeling I used Carrara Studio, for the texture mapping I used Adobe Photoshop 7, for the animation I used Poser 4 Pro, and for the sound editing I used Peak 3.2 (for getting the sound levels correct, and doing proper fades and blending between the two music pieces)July 8, 2003 at 3:10 am #7572

The fight scene wasn’t that compelling since the motion wasn’t quite right and the blows did not land. It didn’t seem like there was any fighting going on.
Well, technically speaking, as the movie was a spoof on a scene from another movie, you could say that the plot is the same thing. Humans are being used as an energy source by a giant race of artificially intelligent machines, and the only one who can free mankind is Neo. All humans are stuck in a virtual reality type world, and Neo has the power to control this world. Agents of the computers also roam this world to try and stop people like Neo, and one agent – Smith, was killed by Neo – supposedly the first agent to ever be killed by a human. The agent comes back, only this time there are many of him, and they all fight Neo at the same time. Thus, my movie, in which Neo fights off all those Smith guys.
So while my spoof didn’t contain all of this information, it was really only meant for those who have already seen The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded and understand the storyline already, and I didn’t want to bore anyone with trying to fit two movies worth of plot into an animation just to show a fight scene.
As far as the choreography is concerned – yes, it is far from perfect. But then again, hey, they are Legos mini-figs, and technicly they shouldn’t even be able to move their arms to the left and right 😀
