Hey guys! I was just wanted to see when you guys started making brickfilms. I started when I was 6 years old. I have been doing it for 7 years. What about you guys?March 27, 2014 at 7:13 am #440392
Maybe a year ago or two, I made my secund. But first now do I have what I feel i need to make them. I my first stop motion back in school I guess somewere between 2000 and 2003.March 27, 2014 at 12:22 pm #440393
Okay. Anyone else?March 27, 2014 at 5:46 pm #440395
Well, I’m just a Beginner, And I shoot at 24FPS, I haven’t really started yet, But I’m saving up for DF(DragonFrame) , so it will take a While. (PS): 5months of Brickfilming.March 27, 2014 at 6:48 pm #440396

I actually tried my first brick film about 7 years ago as well. I couldn’t figure out how to change the pictures duration small enough with my primitive 7 year old mind so I didn’t accomplish it. Two or three years later I succeeded in making my first brickfilm- a duel between General Grievous and the fish headed guy who looks like the general who says “ITSA TRAP!” (Apologizes for my lacking knowledge of star wars.) After that I immediately began on another, longer brickfilm dubbed “Darth Mauls Revenge” I made two other longer films, then resorted to composing smaller ones. I went through this cycle over about 3 years then I began to make much more professional, better brickfilms. for example in my younger years I simply set the set down (See what I did there?) and took a flash picture. I didnt have a tripod or anything I just set it down. Now I have a full-fledged big camera tripod and have been trying to perfect the lighting. So yah, thats pretty much my not-so-glorious story of brickfilming. XDMarch 28, 2014 at 12:31 am #440401
Lol! Ha ha, that sounds alot like how I started out. When I was 7 or 6, I would basically keep the flash on, take a picture without a tripod, and play the video on my camera. I started out using LEGO cars. That soon got old and I decided to try the mini figures. I did that and fell in love with the art of brickfilming! It is probably one of my favorite hobbies…….. What am I saying?!? It is my favorite hobby!!! ( Besides playing football ) 😀 Ever since I made my first brickfilm, I have been collecting more and more LEGOs, and now I have a very large collection. This is just my story of how I started out in a nut shell. Thanks, and I would like to hear some other stories.March 29, 2014 at 2:03 pm #440419
I’m still starting out as well 🙂 I have played with Lego when I was still young and my goal now is to collect more sets and tools. I have dabbled a bit with Stop Motion before but it’s only clay.March 29, 2014 at 5:17 pm #440433
Yah, I think I need to increase my mini figure collection. For the last 4 years I have mainly focused on Star Wars sets, but now Im starting to want more City type sets.March 30, 2014 at 10:48 pm #440448
I started right before I turned 13 and right after LEGO Universe closed. I never really shared them until Christmas of 2012.
