Hero Factory: Episode 0: Rookie Pilot


The very first Episode in my Hero Factory series. I made this series as a response to the Official HF series.

I'm an underground Brickfilmer who uses mainly Hero Factory. Be sure to check out my work if you're interested.

The story and voice acting was okay, and your attempts at VFX were good for a beginner, but you really ought to make your animation smoother (more frames + a higher framerate) and try to design sets. I know it's difficult due to the sheer size of constraction figures (trust me, I spent nearly half a decade doing BIONICLE animations) but seeing curtains and a keyboard and random bits of furniture is a real turnoff.

However, it's refreshing to see that you've gone for voices rather than subtitles. I don't know if you're familiar with Scotttjt and Kylernuva135, but they normally do exactly the kind of video that this is, but with subtitles rather than actual voices. Scotttjt is a really really really good storyteller (while Kylernuva135 is not) but the lack of voice acting and of any semblance of a set really detracts from his work.

That said, you're off to a good start. I hope all this helps, and feel free to message me if you want any further advice. If there's anyone on the forum to ask about animating BIONICLE/Hero Factory figures, I'm your guy.
