Re: Post whom your favorite brickfilmers doth be

I think it might be a good idea to re-return this thread for newer brickfilmers' opinions... However, Mr. Mingle - it might be good to post a paragraph or two when reviving a thread, so others won't be mad you bumped it.

My favorites are:

1  Nathan Wells (He inspired me to brickfilm)
2  CannedGravy (Who can't forget Pirates and America: Outlawed?)
3  TLFScarheart (Her animation may not be at a "pristine 15," but aside from fps, she has some of the GREATEST stories. It is an honor to be able to work with her on her continuing series')
4  Mindgame (He helped start Nathan Wells, after all, and has some very funny brickfilms of his own)
5  Paganomation (It's awesome that David Pagano has ACTUALLY ANIMATED COMMERCIALS FOR THE LEGO COMPANY!)

If I had to put another, it might be ForrestFire101, but not for his comedy, not because he makes batman videos, but because of his animation! (For someone who started brickfilming around when I did, it's awesome to see how "smoothe" his animation is... Just look at his Justice League video; the movements and little "bobbles" that characters make when talking is SO realistic looking - something I've been looking to do in my brickfilms. (And now I have a "formula" to go off of when looking at the video frame by frame)

I think we already have enough threads for this.

Who said we were making another? I know this is like the third one, but the other big one hasn't been bumped yet, and I see this one has.

Re: Post whom your favorite brickfilmers doth be

I was just saying that because it seemed like Mickey thought this was a new thread when there'd already been ones like this.

This is the oldest thread, Mickey.

Re: Post whom your favorite brickfilmers doth be

My favorite all time brickfilmer is FancyPants.  He is the one who inspired me to animate.  My other favorites are MindGame, NXT Maniac, and Mobiledeli.

Ahhh yeah!!!

Re: Post whom your favorite brickfilmers doth be

I think he goes by Night Owl on BiM... Anyway I really liked that guy's films. They had a really artistic dimension tht most brickfilms lack. That being said, Max Butcher is another really great one, and he makes amazing comedy films too. Lastly Squid, who manages to imbibe his films with an absurd notion of a universe I wished existed.
