Wonderful work. Amazing what you can do in a week and a couple days.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

Probably your best film in a long time. I think the music visualization could be worked on some more; it was impressive but felt weak at other moments. Not sure if it necessarily feels avant-garde (there's something very traditional about it that almost goes back to the early brickfilms), but it's very well-executed.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

Excellent. Your animation is brilliant as always and I love the idea.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

Great work! I did see the Avant-Garde in this, as I have never seen a minifigure compose. Lovely lighting too.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

Your animation is awesome! It's so livelike, but I can say that I do not believe this is your best work. You don't get the hints of it being rushed, but I know it was. Still wasn't that bad, but I just wasn't entertained.

The animation was extremely smooth, and it seemed Avant-Garde to me. I liked the very end after the credits.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

Superb work. Though I definitely thought it was Avant-Garde, I was initially expecting there to be something more to it, making it a bit of a letdown. I would also echo Night Owl's thoughts about the visualization being weak at times but still very well done overall.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

This is definitely one of the best entries that we've seen. The animation was superb, the story idea was somewhat unique, though it reminds us of the glory days, & there was little light flicker from what we saw. The sound & the technique of lighting was also fantastic. We will rate it a 4.5/5.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

Oooh, let's see that again. 

So that's the guy behind my Windows Media Player visualization.

Avant-Garde-worthy?  I don't know.  Sure we don't normally see music conductor videos, but we've seen the same set up (baseplate in black expanse) from MindGame before.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

A very Wonderful work, MG, I loved how it was unexpected with what the magician was going to do. Felt kind of Terry Gilliam to me, which is a good thing.

I am devoted to proving that the brickfilm art can be just as serious, emotional, and entertaining as anything in the professional film industry.

Genius.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

MY goodness, great work here MindGame, the animation was fantastic, (As usual) and the lighting was excellent.

Avant-Garde. Pretty much.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

Very nicely shot. The simple set was so effective with the excellent lighting.
I sound based animation isn't as clever as the visualisation of media player but entertaining all the same.
The other animation was tip-top. I enjoyed this film a great deal.

Re: BiM 2010: The Magician

I'm not sure if I'd call this Avant-Garde, but it sure is a nice visualisation of the music in a creative fresh way. Technical aspects were excellent and I liked the simplicity of the movie.
