Director's Comments

When Bricklines Flight 901 mysteriously crashes, the pilot is blamed for the accident. It will take two crack FBI agents, one of whom was aboard the plane, to prove the pilot innocent and find the real culprit before it's too late!

My second attempt at the Twenty-Four Hour Animation Contest (THAC 4), which ended up not being completed fully within the 24 hours. However, I still released it along with the other entries, and it became one of my more popular films. It was followed by a sequel, Flight 901.5: The Night Before, and a third installment in the trilogy may come with the next THAC.

Staff Review

Zach Macias:
Flight 901 is a simple film, to put it...well, simply. It doesn't require a lot of thought on the viewer's part, as most everything in the story is explained to them. The film therefore, unfortunately, doesn't really seem to go anywhere, but then again, it is difficult to make a well-developed story in a Twenty-Four Hour Animation Contest. The technical qualities are all at or above average, about as good as the film really needs. So overall, it's a pretty simple film, not much really going on, but still decent enough to get by.
