Parrots in Space

Coming soon to a theatre near you...

I made this in 3 days after I couldn't make my original idea due to the late arrival of a BrickLink order.

I may be a bit biased, but this is a winner. Clearly, it has quite the emotion poured into it. Penta is a truly dedicated human being to create something like this in just three days.

In all seriousness, this was hilarious, I was laughing out loud throughout the entire thing. The parody was perfect. I'm rooting for you in the contest! mini/wink

A dual parody, yet still a standalone masterpiece. And in only 3 days? Fantastic! mini/cat

I can't believe you did that in 3 days! It looked perfect, absolutely perfect!

Wonderfully cynical, and excellently executed. The fact it's so neatly interwoven with Sola Luna too brings a whole level of fun intertextuality you don't often see in brickfilms.

And like pretty much everyone else in this thread, I'm flabbergasted this only took you 3 days. Superb!

Re: Parrots in Space [TCOTY Contest Entry]

This is nothing less than a work of art and cinematic masterpiece.  Truly, you have captured the spirit and essence of not only the Citizen of the Year and Sola Luna but also Brickfilming as a whole.


Spoiler (highlight to read)It took me a while to figure out that they were watching a TV.  I completely lost it when the parrot hit the space-lady though.  On the whole this is brilliantly funny, one of the best parodies I've seen recently.  The ending actually feels pretty timely, what with the new Star Wars around the corner.  It's also seriously impressive that you managed to make this in three days.

Those dudes have quite a messy floor in their living room!
Do you think your original idea would have been better than what you ended up with?

Re: Parrots in Space [TCOTY Contest Entry]

Well done; I like the idea that he was responsible for the accident in Sola Luna - it also gave me a thought of another contest - the characters of TCOTY in other popular brickfilms...hmmm

Good job.

Thanks for the responses, everyone! Thauka, I think it's hard for me to say. My original idea involved people excitedly going to the theatre to see TCOTY in 3D, but being bombarded with trailers for TCOTY universe films and becoming annoyed with it, so it's basically all compressed into this film. Maybe it's better to have this brief version rather than to drag the ideas it out.

Re: Parrots in Space [TCOTY Contest Entry]

Great job!  You had a very busy 3 days of brickfilming!

Re: Parrots in Space [TCOTY Contest Entry]

I laughed out loud when the parrot hit the woman. This is, truly, a masterpiece.
