...I'm not sure how I feel about using one brickfilmer to be synonymous with certain bad qualities.

I, actually, am in the minority of people who like ForrestFire101's work. He really had his own wacky sense of humor, and wasn't afraid to show it. And, he is a prime example of how much, and how quickly brickfilmers can change over time. Just look at some of his first videos, and then go to his last...

People like Nathan Wells and Doug Vandegrift are just too perfect, mini/tongue as, most of their first films could already compete with seasoned brickfilming veterans of the time. ForrestFire101's more of an "everyman," just with a potty-mouth.

My problem is when people start copying his style. Really, I hate it when anyone copies anyone else. The infinite multitude of Star Wars brickfilms are perfect examples. - The original films are awesome masterpieces, but, when Jimmy down the street makes his 19th fanfilm with the same plastic bricks... it can start to get annoying.

However, aside from the several jokes that did seem a little more ForrestFire101-esque, your film was one of my favorites. I'd love to see more of your films, sometime. mini/smile

Aw, thanks. mini/cat  I'm really happy I got on your list of favourite brickfilms.  And yeah, I am pretty aggravated by the technical difficulties.  There was a bit of a learning curve for me as I had to figure out how to do a bunch of new stuff I'd never tried before.  I think it worked out pretty well, all things considered (amongst other things, I had to deal with a camera with autofocus and no animation program).  I was still pretty rushed, though--which is why I intend to animate a short film to apply all the things I learned that will hopefully be (much) better.

I like the idea of black-and-white (some other people also suggested it), but it didn't occur to me at the time, and it would mean I couldn't use the color mod.  And I honestly would have no idea how to pull off decolorising... in that space of time.

I would have, personally, made the whole project in Black and White in Sony Vegas. (what I use, but, has practically the same B&W capabilities that windows movie maker has) I had gotten pretty quick at it, actually, having done so many effects-heavy editing for other brickfilmers a few years ago. However, it's a bit ironic that I mention this now, as, I currently use Helium Frog, and the only way to retrieve the original frames from it is very difficult for me... mini/tongue

But, yeah, I would have made the whole thing the desired monotone colors, and then, would have edited the frames with the

coin

one at a time, synching them back in with the rest of the animation later...

If you want, I could film a quick short, and show you how. mini/smile

But, you're film's genius as it is - and, I don't want you going all George Lucas on it mini/tongue
