Topic: [THAC X] The Magician

Haven't made a brickfilm in quite a while, but I found a webcam and whipped up a short one for THAC.

The Magician on Youtube
...and on Mediafire

Re: [THAC X] The Magician

Like I said on youtube, overall it was a really nice and clean looking film. The only thing I would have preferred would have been real cloth used instead of CG. But other than that, the animation was great, as was everything else. Great job man!

Re: [THAC X] The Magician


I should complain about how short it is, but I think if this was any longer it would outstay its welcome. Its an assassin of a Brickfilm: quickly coming in, tastefully blowing your brains out, and swiftly exiting like a draft of wind before you can gather your thoughts again. This is brilliant.

The CGI cloth really bothered me to be honest, it was hard for me to look past. Everything else was pretty good though, was pretty entertaining for such a short film.

Re: [THAC X] The Magician

The CG cloth does look a little out of place, but other than that, the production value is flawless.  Well done.

Re: [THAC X] The Magician

I agree with the others about the cloth, although it was rendered pretty well. I really enjoyed the set design, especially the "M"s hidden in the background.

I felt like stop-mo cloth would be obnoxious to work with, and CGI cloth would be more billowy or cinematic or something. It's definitely super rough, but I don't feel too bad about how it turned out. I think the idea gets across.

Re: [THAC X] The Magician

I don't really know what to think of The Magician. I certainly like the film's cinematography and animation style, and the story is told well as well. There's so many small things about the film that slightly bother me, though: the distracting "constant tilting" camera effect, the digitally rendered cloths, the somewhat too dramatic music... all tiny things that kind of bummed me out. I don't mean to sound too negative, though - this film not bad, but it does lack something.
