Director's Comments

My contribution to Brickfilm Day. A documentary with some original animation (filmed in about a tenth of a second) designed to provide a more complete overview of the earliest decades of brickfilming. Since 2014, I have been expanding a list of pre-2000s brickfilms as I come across more and more. Some of the films included here were found as recently as this week. Initially, I planned to include the 1990s, but I soon realised there was way too much to cover. I hope to make part 2 in the near future, and maybe continue, if people like them.
