Story is the most important thing. I think amateur is mostly about playing around with directing, writing, and editing. Of course, fun effects and a little humor always improve films.

I think story is a good part of it, but what makes me want to watch a brickfilm for more than 10 seconds is one with good animation, and at least decent camera quality, where you could at least clearly see the decals of the minifigures.

I’d say a good plotline, interesting sets, and a stable camera base. :wink

For me, there is a certain image and sound quality that has to be delivered
(e.g. stable camera base).
:idea: It is a prerequisite, the viewer has to be able to
watch the Brickfilm actually.
(Think it works that way.)

A good Brickfilm must have a GOOD STORY.
With a good plot, dialogs,….

With interesting characters :twisted: 8-) and detailed, fitting sets.

(If the sets are crap, it undermines the believability of the movie. Because it creates some sort of styles battle. :mrgreen: :D )

Let’s see a picture of this base and then we’ll decide how suitable it is. ;)

If you attach the base to your baseplate, then it will minimise camera bumps. Also, if it’s that tall, then it’s bound to be a bit wobbly!

Thats only because i needed a high shot of the lego. I’ve made it smaller for other ‘scenes’. OH and my base plate is the little green thing thats al i have its quite small… :lol:

Besides this forum’s owners idea of a good brickfilm, I personally think brickfilms are only good if they are a spoof of a movie, randomly funny, or just flat out funny. :rotfl For instance, I’m working on a Batman Spiderman arguing scene. :brickmiss:

So you don’t think Grace, Faithless, Hastings, or Pirates was good?
