Director's Comments

This film was made as a present for my Dad's 50th birthday. I started work on this a short while ago, but as usual, I only got round to doing the animation a week before it was due, so some parts ended up being rather rushed, and I had to cut a few corners in order to get it done.

There's quite a lot of family-only references in here that most of you wont get, but I hope you enjoy anway. Let the randomness begin...

Staff Review

As mentioned by Cheesey, this silent short is dotted with many references that the viewer won't understand, but that gives you absolutely no reason not to watch it.  The animation and use of bricks is superb, fitting the old school black and white silent style perfectly.  After multiple viewings I still don't understand it, but it leaves me wishing someone would make something like this for me.
