Re Comedy: I think that mostly depends on the plot and script, it’s not needed by me, it’s good for some Brickfilms but sometimes it isn’t.

i think that to create comedy that will truly make someone laugh, is interaction. if you don’t know what i mean, then watch the klay world series on youtube.(thats not spamming, just suggesting).

When producting and putting together a brickfilm’s story, you always want to have interesting characters, and not just knock-offs or parodies of famous characters (e.g. SuperMan to WonderDude). you want your story to be doused with originality. Let’s say, for example you’re making a brickfilm about a child playing in the front yard. What will happen on the street? A car with XXXXXXXXXL-sized rims comes along, maybe a teenage couple holding hands? These are what make stories interesting and believable: CHARACTERS. :eyebrow:

I think a good brickfilm has a good story and realistic, sympathethetic characters. That is what a good movie is made of, and thats also why there are hardly any goood movies anymore.

Hey great topic lads and lassies. I am 43 and have still to make a film. I am glad for any help. Still getting my bricks and figures. Will be filming soon now i know what to look for. Any pointers for noobs on the actual bricks i should be collecting. I have talked to my younger family members they are bringing me bits and pieces. I must say they are all up for me making brick films. There seems to be a big following nowadays.

A strong, clear story line.
I’ve seen so many films that are just too random. Most people might just be bored and make a 5 fps video of guys running around and cars driving in an awkward way. I find that really annoying.

well, a brickfilm has to be smoothly done, with a plot, and for improvement, add sound of special effects. the special effects con be done with programs such as paint, and the edited photocan be used in a stopmotion creator such as windows movie maker.

I do agree with all those.

A tip: give your set personality! before you film, make sure your set includes minor touches that increase realism (e.g: for a house interior, have a broom, for a town or village, have random stuff like mugs and tools floating around)

These finishing touches may seem small, but they make a big difference in the end. :wink

The most important is the film to be smooth. Ive seen movies destroyed because they were not smooth… The plot isn’t so important.
