Were you born of a LEGO angel, NXT?

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

Coldplay is a horrible music choice for brickfilms.

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

Good stuff. Though some of the lyrics were taken a bit too literally in the animation.
Too bad you didn't have the BrickForge musical instruments for this, hehe.

Nice work.

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

It's interesting to see your skills improve over the video, I had seem some of the older footage but not most of the newer stuff.  The motion blur effects in some of these shots is quite convincing.  Congrats on completing this!

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

I need to post again since -

I'm having an emotional moment right now. This video makes me realize I suck at animating compared to you - I never thought i'd say this - but you're like Jesus' assistant of stop-motion.

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

An awesome music video to accompany an amazing song (and this is coming from the Swing Kid). The effects were superb, especially the animated ones (i.e. the wall explosion, and the ground shock wave). There were some areas that looked rougher than others; as if they were animated at the beginning of your two year crusade, but even these clips were above-average. I think my favorite part of the video is the ringing of the bell, and the violin. These were executed so well.

All in all, job well done on animating a four minute song in such a complex manner. Really, this is great!

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

Probably the best animated LEGO music video sinds Captain Bulldog's Lonesome Heroes. Very neat animation, it's indeed sometimes to litteraly of doing what the song says. But still a serious powerfull mixure of the audio with the video wich makes the song even better.

5/5

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

I hate the music, but the video is extremely awesome.

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

I LOVE COLDPLAY! I LOVE THIS! I LOVE YOU! mini/bigsmile

Why are you looking at my signature?
Mod edit: Your signature started it.
... Oh yeah.

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

I had to watch it four times because of it's awesomeness!

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

Awesome effort NXT, that was a pretty cool. I'm not the biggest coldplay fan in the world, but I enjoyed this regardless. Well done.

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

That was brilliant. I, like others, really noticed how you have improved over time. I liked it all, except the giant lego hand looked a bit strange, but I know that that was probably the best way to do it. In particular, I love your 'brick built' stuff, the fire, the shockwave, etc.
5/5, one of the best films of this year so far. Well done for sticking with it to the end too, 2 YEARS?!

Re: Coldplay- Viva La Vida

Excellent. Really, this is brilliant.

I think it got off to a weak start. Everything in the video was very literal, much more notably so for the first minute, and this is a shame. I remember this quote:

David Pagano once wrote:

...the first rule of music video creation -- don't just show what the song says.

After that, things picked up. The technical qualities just kept getting better and there was less focus on the actual lyrics - I guess that's a result of you becoming a more skilled animator over time. I literally stopped breathing due to tension when our protagonist's head was on the guillotine. At the end I just sat there quiet for a few seconds pondering what I had just seen. I want to go and work on a brickfilm for two years now. Well done, sir.
5/5

So that's one of my all-time most anticipated brickfilms crossed off the list. Bring on Mission to Deimos!
