Director's Comments

The upload finished one minute past the deadline, our email submission arrived three minutes late. No mercy, unfortunately. What matters though is that we had fun and made a film in 24 hours! :)

Animated in twenty-four hours for the eleventh (almost) annual Twenty-four Hour Animation Contest on bricksinmotion.com

The theme this year was "A Mistaken Identity" and the mod elements were a grey brick connected to a red brick and the letter T.

A short, stupid film based on a bit of a pun. We ran into quite a few difficulties along the way, so a film that should have been rather easy and quick to make took much longer than we expected. The timelapse shot visible in the background of the majority is actually a long tracking shot which was very time consuming to animate, however, since we shot it on an infinite white background, you can't actually tell!
Be sure to watch in HD!

"THAC is a brickfilming contest that lasts for exactly 24 hours. All the idea-making, writing, recording, animating, editing and submitting is to be done within the time limit. It's a challenge, it's frantic, but it's a lot of fun!"
