Re: App Man Episode 4

Awesome! Definitely a great season finale. Your animation has increased in quality exponentially since the first episode. My only critique is

Spoiler (click to read)

during the fight scene at the end when app man and buffer man are fighting on top of a vehicle, the epic music playing quiets when buffer man talks. But I found the transition kind of awkward and noticeable.

But besides from that it was awesome and I can't wait for more! mini/smile

Re: App Man Episode 4

You should be getting your gold stud soon for this film.
I just watched and was surprised.  I knew it was coming soon, bt not so soon!
Loved it!  I'm going to bed now but will comment in more detail soon.

I'm also pleased and humbled to join the APP MAN crew as Mr. Byrd.

Just an important note for those who haven't seen it yet: Keep watching through the credits!  There's a surprise for those who watch it all the way through.

Re: App Man Episode 4

Nice job! This was really enjoyable; I think it is the best App Man episode yet!

Re: App Man Episode 4

Well, now I have time to type.

The animation is more skillfully done with each episode.  You appear more comfortable.

The action scenes are more intense and also more thought-out in the choreography.  I especially liked the cilimactic action sequence.  Lots of motion, and lots of planning probably went into it.

The story has more intrigue to it this time around.  It really is starting to remind me of TV shows like 24 and Max Headroom.  Max really was ahead of its time, and it seems real life, and sci fi itself, is beginning to catch up.

Mary Charles is just awesome as expected.  Also, Rafael is we;;-suited and talented as App Man himself, and Jay Silver brought Bufferman to life, and just sounds like a real person and not an actor.  Jay Silver is just great.

Does the story take place in the UK or America?  I'm guessing America since it's common for people with British accents to appear in America but not vice versa.  Wouldn't care, and would think if the city is in England it would be cool too.  I didn't notice any UK-specific vocabulary.  In one Transformer comic from the UK, Optimus Prime met President Reagan, but since it was for UK readership, Reagan said that Optimus transformed into a lorry rather than a tractor-trailer truck.  That amused me because the writer, Simon Furman, "Britified" the great president's diction.

A few transitions during action scenes were to quick for the conscious mind to discern.  That's my only complaint.  That and the long delay in the administration addiing a goldt stud to the side of your film.  But it's Easter vaca.

This is a great ending to the first story arc.  And as I said before, App Man is a perfect super hero for modern times.  And I like that it's got some wit and humor to go along with it.

Re: App Man Episode 4

Thank you so much. I've always pictured Blockam City somewhere in the North East seaboard of the US, around the New York area of the country. The reason for it being fictionalized in the first place and not somewhere like New York City, was mostly because I wanted to have complete creative control on the look of the city, and everywhere in New York city is too famous and iconic and it would be hard to replicate that in Lego. But one of the main reasons was because there's already so many superhero movies set in New York. The only ever time in the series that really mentioned that it was set in the US was when App Man told Andrew that their parents moved to Philadelphia in Episode 2, but other than that, I've left it quite inconspicuous as to the exact location that the series is set in.

As for the lack of gold stud - I should imagine that it's just that none of the staff members have watched it yet more than anything else. I am just assuming, as I would hope this is considered good enough to receive one. I'm hardly the best at what I do, but this is the best example of my work so far.

Re: App Man Episode 4

yes, you've come a long way in a short time.

Good idea to have a ficticius town for the two reasons of creative freedom, and avoiding "Big Apple-sauce", where there are so many audience expexctations for a New York setting.  In HOO the ficticious setting of Bremen has allowed me to independently develop the socio-geographic culture of the region, while incorporating elements of my local area whenever I wish.  But Blockam definitely has the northeast US feel.

Re: App Man Episode 4

I remember when I first watched episode 1 and I was like "meh, it's decent, good storyline" and now watching this I'm like mini/eek I have always liked the idea of app man, but now your animation quality is great, the voicing was terrific, the season has been full of surprises (I don't know why, but the bonus clip at the end reminded me of the avengers mini/tongue), I was impressed that you used mouth animation and blinking, so well done for that! mini/smile Also am I right in saying that some of the music was made by yourself? If so then that's amazing! mini/smile

Re: App Man Episode 4

Thanks. It's been a blast making this series. I hope to maintain the quality of the series in Season 2. I have a lot of ideas planned and I look forward to working on them! No, I didn't actually compose any of the music. I avoid using music I've heard before, like Kevin MacLeod's music. I only used a couple of his songs throughout the series, but mostly searched the net for more obscure, less used music. I haven't heard most of the music in previous brickfilms before, and I assume most of you haven't either? I can't stand it when I suddenly hear one of the  tunes I used suddenly being used frequently!

Re: App Man Episode 4

Aside from the easily recognisable music (which was fairly scarce throughout the series) I don not believe that I have heard of any of the other soundtracks before mini/smile
