Topic: Brickfilm of the Week: VIRUS (July 17, 2015)
This week’s Brickfilm of the Week is VIRUS by Fred Mangan.
VIRUS is a unique brickfilm focusing on brick-built robot characters who live inside a computer. It was made in 2011 and has remained little-known within the brickfilm community.
SPOILERY DISCUSSION BELOW!
I discovered this film recently, although it appears a handful of other people from the community had seen it back in 2011 when it was originally posted online. The use of live action and framing the LEGO-built world within the inside world of a computer was a neat idea to me, and one of those rare instances where the medium suits the story well.
Thoughts on the film? Have you ever tried to make a brickfilm without minifigs?
