Director's Comments

This was the winning entry to the Nicktoons Network Animation Festival "Built By Me" competition sponsored by LEGO.  Grand prize included an obligation to follow up with something for LEGO and Viacom!  This was my first complete stop motion short, enjoy!

Staff Review

Don't be turned away by the fact that this is Garrett's first brickfilm, as it is highly entertaining. The sets that build themselves are fun to watch, and the plot is one every brother and sister will be able to relate to. The animation is a strong point in the film, particularly the large sets emerging from the ground. Be wary of the voice acting though, as the girl can get very annoying.
Play Nice is a great place for Garrett to start his brickfilming career, and with a Nickelodeon Grand Prize, you can't go wrong.
