Looking really great so far! Sorry I haven't posted any feedback so far, I've been busy with brickfilming and traveling and such, but since you've been so diligent about updates, this should be a big review. I have noticed you haven't been making many longer films recently (exluding the Politically Incorrect Christmas), it's been a lot of humorous short films, so it's fantastic to hear about this new project! One quick small nitpick I have is that the trailer title font is somewhat tacky, seems very "digital", but it's not a big deal, and if it's not changed, obviously won't change the film quality itself. I've also noticed that you haven't entered any film competitions for quite some time, so do you have any plans for this current video? Anyway, onto the production! The story itself sounds quite fun, and really has the potential for some interesting interplay and plot. Dr. Jeremy seems somewhat wild, and it'll be fun to see how that manifests itself. The minifigures are well-made, with Winston looking somewhat nerdy, but also reeady for an adventursome makeover. Now, are you intending this film to be more on the serious side, or comedic? The teaser released on your channel give the impression of the former, but the description of his "stagnant, lazy, life" has a moralistic aspect, and I assume his father is either dead or in some sort of trouble, which would give the opposite slant to the film. The pictures of the fight scene technique are cool, the idea's really inventive for brickfilming, and it's a whole another level of detail in the planning of this film. I know you said you've already filmed several scenes, but will you sync up dialogue/sound effects to the animatic before you film, or will you just use the picture aids? The barrel pose looks exciting though, I can't remember seeing that type of fight in any video before, so it stands out! The drawing is minimal, but clear enough to get the point, and in conjunction with the animatic pictures, accomplishes the goal flawlessly. The last update you've posted, on Brick A Brack, doesn't say much about the progression of the production, but the picture is super nice, leaving me curious as to what camera you captured it with. The lighting is amazing, and if I hadn't seen the accompaning description, I would have assumed it was Brickstuff, it fits so well. The iPod is a clever use, I don't hear about that very often, and there's a pretty bokeh behind the focus on the lamp. Anyway, the film is seeming to be turning out stellar so far, keep up the great work, can't wait to hear more!
God bless and brickfilm on,
