    I should have stated. I think main processes should be broken down into a few rooms. Say the painting could be spraying the bricks with a spray that makes it paint-able, then mixing the paint and then spreading the paint over bricks. If a main process was to only get one room it may not let much animators take part.

    Still post what you would like to do and we can see what can be done.

    Well, then, how about molding is split into (a) melting the old bricks, (b) placing the melted plastic into molds, and (c) the final molding, as in cooling the molded bricks with fans and such.

    That could work. Does anyone have objections to using old bricks as new material? That could cause a paradox. Where did the first bricks come from if there made from old ones.

    The “(b) placing the melted plastic into molds, and (c) the final molding” are good.

    I already had my idea for the modelling process. It’s simalar to melting old bricks but much more sinister. RP knows it already and it should be quite funny, although copyright may be an issue. What is the situation with that?

    Feel free to tell people it here. It would be interesting having a blend of “Happy” processes and “Sinister” processes but I don’t know if it would really work.

    I think an animator would need to see the clip that happened before the clip he is animating, so it would look the same.

    Also, if I take part I would like the loading process.

    As continuity is one of the most important things in the production of this. I think rather than show the clip before. The animator could show what a brick would look like after it’s gone through the process. Say you were doing the painting one. You could be handed a picture of a gray brick so at the start of your clip the bricks are gray but later it’s red.

    I think it might be better to start with what specific rooms you want to have, a general idea of what order they should appear and basically have a detailed diagram of the factory (as you have initial started at the beginning of the conception), then determine who animates what.

    Mmkay then, I just thought it might be too sinister, so I told you first.
    The idea is there is a minifigure in a machine, the switch is flicked on and it’s a bit like the shower scene in Physco, (No gore though, just a general idea) and then you just see bricks being pumped out the end of the machine.
    I can change to something less… sinister if the project demands it.

    I would like to see sinister processes as it would give the film some mystery. However I don’t know if they would fit. I personally wouldn’t mind a mix of magical processes and sinister ones. But I’m not sure if it would work well with continuity.
