I think, the first step in creating a Brickfilm is making a screenplay, or in other words, a script. Now, a script, by definition, is a document that outlines every aural, visual, behavioral, and lingual element required to tell a story (in a movie, play, ect.). Basically, a script tells the director and his cast and crew exactly what is going to go on in each scene or shot. A typical Brickfilm script may include dialogue, emotions, the setting, the props needed, and what the lighting and camera angles are going to be needed. When you are making a script for a Brickfilm though, you don’t necessarily need to include all these things (especially if you are the only one working on it). Your script can be as detailed or as simple as you like.

Scriptwriting = writing ideas… So I guess to make a long post short… To make a video… First you should have an ideaDecember 8, 2012 at 10:59 pm #420235
As it is with all forms of art. Must have an idea of what you’re doing before you start, unless you’re making some sort of weird abstract…. In which case… Wing It!December 13, 2012 at 1:52 am #420299

well to write a script not only do you have to have good ideas but the right softwareFebruary 14, 2013 at 5:44 pm #421147
I think this is a very important aspect in any kind of film-making. Especially with brick films, as there are a lot to be planned. A well-prepared script oversees almost all conceivable difficulties that could be encountered during filming, post-production, etc. As in tradition, story boards are an invaluable help for visual film-making as well as it better organizes scenes and events in the film.
A script is, of course, not hard rule. But it can be a very good guideline and help you keep track of your progress, as well as the story’s weaknesses and strengths.April 14, 2013 at 12:16 pm #421972
Making a movie from nothing may befun, but I agree that having/creating notes and drawings helps a lot. Test building the diferent parts of the set to get the most out of it.April 16, 2013 at 5:27 pm #421992
Good point.January 1, 2014 at 5:29 am #439447
I think this could be summed up as those who fail to plan, plan to fail. Writing the script first saves you a lot of time during the shooting and editing. It gives you a path to follow so that you don’t get sidetracked too much.
