Topic: Brickfilm of the Week: 1xY (November 14, 2015)
This week’s Brickfilm of the Week is 1xY by Errol Elumir.
1xY is a 2003 action brickfilm by Errol Elumir. It is Errol's first brickfilm and was created for and won a competition held by his workplace, The Children's Technology Workshop. It is known for its use of LEGO plates as characters, rather than minifigures (a necessity due to Errol's lack of LEGO at the time), and its minimalistic approach went on to help influence the 2004 10 Brick Contest.
Though he did not release many films, Errol was active in the communities of Brickfilms.com and then BricksInMotion.com from 2003 to around 2009. He is also known for the Stikfas and LEGO film Fight, which was nominated for 3 awards in the 2007 BAFAs.
There was also a sequel to 1xY planned and a trailer was released in 2004, though ultimately the film was cancelled by the end of that year.
