Topic: Brickfilming Discussion Week 12: The Spoken Word
Welcome to the Weekly Bricks in Motion Filmmaking & Brickfilming Discussion thread!
These threads are designed to inspire discussion, debate and discourse on the topics of filmmaking, brickfilming, storytelling and LEGO. Each week I will start a new thread with a new discussion topic. Everyone is welcome to contribute as long as you have something thoughtful to say. Paragraphs are encouraged! If you are going to participate in this thread, please keep the discussion civil and refrain from pointless jokes, image macros, or “memes.”
Please stay on topic and keep your comments civil and respectful of other members.
This week’s discussion topic:
What are your thoughts on relying on dialog to tell a story?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of using dialog in films? What about using no dialog and instead relying entirely on the visuals? What is gained, and what is lost?
