640 rez might work, that’s not terribly bad. It’s got a lot to do with the compression too. It’s no big deal if some movies look a bit internetty so to speak. As long as they don’t look completely freakin’ awful when projected from DV, it’s ok.
I’m with you regarding the language issue. However, the biggest reason we kick ass in english is that we don’t dub tv shows and movies like certain other countries do *cough*. Also the natural ability to sound english has to do with the very nature of your native language – how you form the actual words in your mouth. Some languages are more similar than others. But now we’re in linguistics territory and it’s been years since I studied english at college so I’m not gonna go there.
I never learned a word of english in school btw – I got it all from books, movies and TV. And records, don’t forget records. My first english phrase probably was “take me down to the paradise city”.August 19, 2007 at 4:36 pm #318187

Woah, the part in English surprised me. Nice animation though. This is a great way to show you are serious about this festival. Have you made a list of films that you know you are going to use? Good Luck!August 22, 2007 at 11:16 am #318881
That was quite a nice advertisement. The footstep sounds were some of the best I’ve ever heard.August 22, 2007 at 11:29 am #318884
Awesome, you can use any of my films. If you want the links to them I can PM you some.August 22, 2007 at 11:30 am #318885
You can use either of my films. Sweet Temptation and One Small Pizza are both on my website’s film page.August 22, 2007 at 5:59 pm #318981
Thanks for the kind words. I will check out all your films. The trailer will be shown tonight on an outdoor screening of The Corpse Bride – hopefully that will raise some interest in the festival. I did not do it all on my own, however. I collaborated with another swedish brickfilmer (whose brickfilms username I am not familiar with, however) and he deserves credit as well for the trailer.
Thanks again, glad you liked it.August 22, 2007 at 6:04 pm #318986

Yes, I have. I will post them on the website (website only available in swedish though) as soon as I have them cleared and ok’d by everyone involved. Also, I’ll be posting news about the festival in the left margin of the website all the way till october.
Right now, I’m watching films and putting everything together in that department. I’m also talking with a local bakery that will be providing lego brick shaped cakes for everyone to enjoy. And I’m making some posters with the official festival logo (the one on the website).August 22, 2007 at 6:20 pm #318994
Not much use using any of my films, they all are pretty bad. Swedish brickfilm fest seems cool.
