Re: Crown of Syracuse

The opening scene is quite epic, you have a habit of doing that!
Story and photography was also very good, it kept me watching till the end.
I have to say I'm not a fan of arm raising figs for dialogue, but that's just me.
A very good film you continually raise the bar that brickfilmers aspire to.
But 2 years old I can't wait to see what your working on now.

Re: Crown of Syracuse

I thought it was very well done. The water effects were OK but not perfect in my opinion. (Just watch I'm gonna be banned!) mini/lol

Re: Crown of Syracuse

I keep forgetting about this film. I always liked the digital effects you did in this. The water on the barrels was good.

I think I'm gonna use some of the frames for the NTF(CC) thread.

Re: Crown of Syracuse

Thanks, as I was filming it I knew that there was some potential caption contest material, not a week after its release Nathan Wells posted a shot of Archimedes in the buff as the new caption contest image.

Re: Crown of Syracuse

I remember that, which is why I was thinking of it.

Nice work Smeagol. I can't believe I hadn't seen this before.
