Action! [BRAWL#2016]

YouTube

"I like human beings animation. They look so… realistic… I like when people bring them to life through stop-motion animation movies. They are very easy to enliven puppets."

A BRAWL 2016 entry, entirely made in one week.

This was really good! Your interpretation of the theme was very creative.

It kind of makes you think, too. Who's really the one doing the animating?

This film was amazing! Although I knew what was going to happen from the beginning, the story was very intriguing and kept me interested. You executed your sound design amazingly too, which was well accompanied by ingenious cinematography. I thought however that your animation could use some improvement, but it was way better than last BRAWL!

one thing however was that you never really explained how the LEGO people were animating humans, because like they were still on the set, but yet they were taking pictures of the set but off the set... It was a little confusing


Overall, Fantastic film, I hope to see more from you and that you do well!

Good luck for the contest! mini/smile

Uh, ok...

Randomboaz brings up a great point, and one that bothered me a bit during the film. Even one shot of how the Lego people animated the human would have been very helpful. Perhaps the difficulty of pulling that off well has been the reason this concept hasn't really been heard of before.

Other than that however, the film is great. It begins straightforward enough, but quickly descends into an endless maze of meta-ness into which it completely loses itself. And the viewers too. The end result leaves us confused, yet with the knowledge that you have crafted a unique and really cool film. I love how the plot of the figures mirrored that of the figures within the human's film. It took what is normally a fun, but somewhat gimmicky concept and turned it on it's head so many times that nobody is quite sure which way is truly up.

I like it. Good job.

Re: [BRAWL 2016] Action!

I'm impressed

I'm a Brickfilmer that loves smooth animation and attention to detail.

Re: [BRAWL 2016] Action!

This was one of my favorites this year. The basic concept has been done in different forms before, but the self-referential way you showcased it was a great choice that really made this stand out from other, similar films. Sound design was well utilized, and the pacing on the music was pretty much perfect. My one complaint would be that I think the segments of live-action could have been trimmed down and maintained the same overall effect- they started to drag after a bit. Perhaps adding more animation to frame them would have helped keep the viewer more engaged.

All things considered, you've got a wonderful little film here. Hope to see you continue to make slightly unconventional films of this nature; BiM could use more boundary pushing.
