An ad I made to warn people against going near train tracks. The original ad can be seen at about 17:45 in this video. Enjoy!

Staff Review

Randy Yard:

I have to wonder about the type of individual who brings this kind of film into existence... no, not the director, but the person who actually has to be told to stay off railroad tracks. That sort of stupidity isn't likely to be changed by this (or any other) brickfilm, but it's not for lack of trying on this director's part. Smart editing and sound design, and effective use of cross-cutting between a flashback scene and an interview setting provide a solid foundation for this film's simple but important message. The animation is the biggest question mark, as there are plenty of bumps and jerky sections, but this flaw isn't enough to derail this otherwise solid PSA.
