Hey everyone!

I hope you enjoy this brickfilm.  I made it for Bricks in Motion's THAC (Twenty-Four Hour Animation Contest).  You have to script, animate, edit, composite, and finish a film in just 24 hours.

Ah! What a wonderfully told, albeit slightly sad, story of life's progression. You did a great job channeling the theme, and the opening shot of awesomeness instantly interested me and drew me in.

As always, the sets and lighting blow me away. Great job leveraging your strengths in those areas, even in THAC.
The lightening strike transition at 0:45 was really well done. Great choice.

I think the only thing that doesn't match is the dialog by the son. Finding a way to convey that wordlessly like the other actions, would have made that section smoother.

That was a very beautiful entry.  The keying isn't perfect but the film looks great otherwise.

Re: Seasons Change - LEGO Stop-Motion || THAC XVIII Entry

This is one of my favorite entries.
I don't know how you made such a great set in 24 hours. (even if you started before the start it is still an amazing set)
You did a great job showing time passing.
Good luck!

Loved the lighting in this. Great job overall and the sound design added a great deal to the feels.
