Topic: The Odyssey of the B-59 - A soviet submarine brickfilm

Hi everyone!

I share here with you the title of my new brickfilm project based on a true story of a soviet submarine involved in the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Expected release: end of october 2022

The script is already finished but written in French. So, I am waiting that a friend translate it in English and after that I will look for russian voice-actors because, of course all characters are russian submarine offiers mini/smile

Building sets and vehicles before filming

The car is based on a Soviet Zil limousin.

Re: The Odyssey of the B-59 - A soviet submarine brickfilm

Looking great so far! I'm excited to see where you go with this, historical fiction brickfilms are fairly rare, and usually top quality, and from some of these pictures, and your recent work, it seems to be carrying on the standard. It also seems like quite a mix of nationalities, as the film's in English, I assume you're French, and the main characters are Russian! I'm sure it'll be hard to pull off, so good luck, especially since russian brickfilmers appear to be scarce currently (as far as I can tell). The text for the title design is also fun, it's nice to see one with effort, it adds more than you'd think to the film's presentation. The promotional pictures are absolutely stellar, and I was thinking about entering Panzercube, but kudos to you for making a solid photo for the event! The submarines seem a little blocky, but the background in the first picture works well, despite being apparent that it's made out of paper/fabric. The second picture is very topical, and works well, have you ever attempted a recreation brickfilm? From the caption, it seems that at least some of the characters are founded in real life, so actually will there be fictional elements in your film, or will it be purely historical? The set building is looking amazing, you're quite a talented MOC builder, again the submarine seems a little blocky, but the limousine is fantastic (it reminds me of the police car in your recent Batman film). Also, despite the somewhat blocky aesthetic of certain builds of yours, there's no denying the accuracy you've been building them at, compared to the real-life photos. Overall, the film is shaping out really great, I can't wait to hear more, and keep up the good work!
God bless and brickfilm on,

Thanks for your support mini/smile And yes, it will be a little multinational project because I am Belgian (and not French) and worked with some Russian speaking brickfilms (like LEGO Crazy motion) and a few french talents.
And the three main characters of this brickfilms are based on real life people because I try to be the more historically accurate, it's well based on a true event.

Interesting some nice decals there, were they custom made for the project? If so, that's very impressive, I'm excited! I like the shirted sailors the best.
