Equine Introspection

An average walk in a dark, eerie park turns out to be much more than just clippity-clomping hooves down a path...

Awesome job Rio! mini/bigsmile

Re: [BRAWL 2016] Equine Introspection

Heh, well, this was interesting... mini/tongue

The visuals were very nice as always. Loved the lighting and nice set design. It's nice to every once in a while see brickfilms that utilizes non-minifig characters. I'd also like to commend your use of camera movements. the voice acting was top notch as well.

Anyhow, well done rio. So glad you managed to complete this within the deadline. Best of luck in the contest!

This film was surprisingly simpler than your previous films, but executed beautifully! Every technical aspect was a beauty of its own! Fantastic.

The lighting is beautiful and I think the idea is really clever, another great film! mini/smile

Re: [BRAWL 2016] Equine Introspection

Ahaha, that was clever. You pulled it off really well, too. As always, the visuals were great and the animation was good (that one camera move looked nice and smooth)!

Re: [BRAWL 2016] Equine Introspection

Great job! Loved the beautiful lighting and also the original & clever story.
Good luck for the contest! mini/smile

Re: [BRAWL 2016] Equine Introspection

Very clever interpretation of the theme. I love it!

The horses are animated extremely well--all the animation is great for that matter. Also, the camera movement adds a whole new dynamic to the film.

The lighting is very nice as well, particularly the light emitting from the streetlamps.

In short, awesome film, rio! I'm always impressed by your animations. I look forward to seeing what you come up with next! mini/smile

Re: [BRAWL 2016] Equine Introspection

I always love your lighting, Riio.  It's so beautiful, so colourful.

Re: [BRAWL 2016] Equine Introspection

It's not often that you see horses used so prominently, and it's a great way to bring charm and life to the film.
Ultimately, the idea is a simple one. The plot itself is short and sweet. But the execution and setting is what this film will be remembered for.

The headgear on the animals was a genius touch, though no doubt one that proved difficult during production. It was each one a personality and flair that would otherwise be impossible to convey. The lighting and sets, as well as animation, are fantastic. You set the atmosphere well, and gave us some beautiful visuals.

I always look forward to your films Rio, and this was certainly not a disappointment.

Re: [BRAWL 2016] Equine Introspection

Thanks for the positive reviews guys! mini/bigsmile I'm especially glad that you all thought that all those camera movements that took hours to do worked well. (And the lighting of course, can't forget about the lighting compliments!")

I so wonder who played the voice of the horse dude. He was one good voice actor! mini/wink

I'm glad you think so! When designing the characters, I just knew that the hairpieces would be the thing that distinguishes the characters. Surprisingly, the most difficulty I had with it was keeping the hat still on the brown horse when he was talking.

Again, thanks everyone for watching!
