Director's Comments

I made this video as part of the Cannes Lions contest hosted on mofilm.com.  I found out about the contest really late, so I had limited time to make an entry. As such, the whole thing was a bit rushed unfortunately.

Staff Review

As anyone knows, LEGO is an incredible medium, and the endless and veritable opportunity it provides is the centerpiece to Fancypants film. The whole concept seems reminiscent of a real Lego advertising campaign, right down to the slightly clichéd 'Where are you going to go?' tagline. Definitely a fun watch with sweet animation, awesome camera work and a cool concept.
