Flying Low

Youtube

When a man is arrested, a vacation is denied, and a plane is left unattended, things tend to get crazy.

I spent quite a bit of time on this film, and it took two weeks of work just to finish the animation. I was lucky to be able to get a lot of great voice actors to help me on this film.

Re: Flying Low

Speaking as a semi-regular air-travel user, I can somewhat identify with this film. mini/tongue 

I just love the complete randomness and the parodying of air travel ("Must have been 100.001 ml of liquid in his bottle!").  Though, no air flight parody should be complete without at least one noisy infant.  The Airplane! references were hilarious too, and I loved the fourth-wall jokes at the end.  And now I want to know what exactly the "Omaha Method" entails, and why it involves Death, Suffering, but above all Cheese... 

From a technical standpoint, the sets weren't all that impressive (and some of the yellow-headed 'figs had flesh hands, and vice versa) and the sound quality varied somewhat between being loud and quiet, but the other aspects of the film still make up for this.  The animation was smooth though, and I really loved the "cartoony" movement of all the characters.  All in all, great job!

Re: Flying Low

Thanks for the feedback, FlyingMinifig! Yes, I guess I did forget the infant. mini/lol But anyway, the mismatched LEGO hands were mostly just an oversight by me. And since I had a tight deadline on this film, I didn't give my usual attention to audio levels, but this will be fixed in the future, I promise.

And with the sets, I do see what you mean. I felt that, since this was all on an airplane, the sets shouldn't be that complicated. But I probably could have put a little more in them.

As for the Omaha Technique, well, you might find out at a later time. mini/wink

Re: Flying Low

I've been sitting here for 15 minutes trying to write something useful about this film. I can't come up with anything so I'll just say this:

Fun film. I laughed my jaw off.

Re: Flying Low

I feel the same about some films as well, Walter Benson. But still, thanks for the compliment!

Re: Flying Low

K that was WTF LOL all rolled into one.
Freaking hilarious bud great work.
I loved the silliness and the outrageous it had.
5 stars from me.

Re: Flying Low

Thanks, Antonio! Yes, in the beginning, all I set out to do was make as weird a film as possible. I think I did pretty good, judging from the feedback. mini/smile

Re: Flying Low

Loved it so much! It reminded me so much of Just Kidden's BRAWL 2012 entry--especially the little bit at the very beginning, with the guy.

The end was epic; I cracked up.

Re: Flying Low

JK's film definitely provided some initial inspiration to this film. I thought it would be nice to put a little call back to his film in my films opening. mini/smile

So, if you're out there JK, thanks for all them inspirations. Cause, without ideas, we wouldn't have stuff. In general.

Re: Flying Low

I was laughing all the way through...and I've read the script.

Just Kidden and Airplane! are two of my favourite things - so to see a merging of the two is a dream come true. You are also excellent at animating dialogue, which is an underrated skill, and your flair for unique characters is great.

I've spent my entire Brickfilming career trying to prove that film doesn't have to be technically perfect to enjoy it. This shall be added to my list...

Re: Flying Low

I try to be as expressive as possible when animating character dialogue. It just fits the cartooney-ness of the film, and it was also a lot more fun to animate. mini/bigsmile
