Director's Comments

This is a slightly abrieviated version of the classic poem "A Visit From St. Nicholas" in LEGO! It is our holiday brickfilm for this Christmas.  Special thanks to all those in the forums for the invaluable help they gave us during the making of this film.

Staff Review

This holiday short from BuildersBrothers is an enjoyable adaptation of the classic Christmas poem, with "say dog-show dog" visuals that suffice. Sound is a hit or miss, with a rather enthusiastic voice over, but little to no music or sound effects to accompany. Animation is choppy, but acceptable. Effects are decent as well. In the end, the warmth and heart of the poem shines through. This is definitely a fun holiday brickfilm to check out, whether you've heard the classic or not.
