Director's Comments

A short commercial I made for a LEGO commercial contest. I didn't win anything, but I thought I'd let you folks see it.

Staff Review

Smeagol once again treats us to an amazing Brickfilm masterpiece.  From the stunning CGI animation and models to the brilliant compositing job and props, this film is one of the best (in spite of the somewhat awkward live action).  In summary, this is an incredible short, both visually and animation wise.  One wonders what the judges of the contest were smoking that day, since they chose to overlook such a fantastic entry.
