Re: Brickfilm Christmas Special Production Thread

I have a few shots animated now, up till now I have mostly been figuring out the blocking (no pun intended) of the characters. I'm trying to treat this the way I would shoot a play or live sitcom, with three basic camera angles. A master from the front, and a camera from each side shooting across to whatever action is relevant. Not strictly, of course, but just to give me a reasonable approach. With only two weeks left, there's still much to be done, so it's an enormous help that everyone is helping with promotion and in other ways. My thanks to joebert10, chris@gbp, and William Osborne, for doing these great promos, and of course Arginnon for so much help with music and sound. It's great to see people outside the project, and especially outside the community, getting excited for the show!

Good luck with animating, Thistof! I updated my signature to do a little promo myself mini/wink

Re: Brickfilm Christmas Special Production Thread

I was just going to ask about signatures.  I am relatively new here (like 2 months), and I don't know how to post a picture in the signature...do I need a Flickr?  and what size does it need to be?

Re: Brickfilm Christmas Special Production Thread

It was a pleasure taking part in this wonderful project, and I can't wait to see how it all works out together.
@joebert10 to add a signature, you'll need either a Flickr or Imgur account, and copy/paste an IMG image link via either of those sites. You'll have to make sure that your image does not exceed 100 pixels high and 400 pixels wide. If you have any difficulties working out how to get your signature banner, just send me a pm mini/smile

There's a handy dandy FAQ for the forums here with information on how to do that. mini/wink

Very nice!

Re: Brickfilm Christmas Special Production Thread

I plan on doing a 30 second cutdown of John Buttocks and the Comanche Ninjas for a commercial. You also could feature the whole thing if you wish as it was made for this. mini/wink

Re: Brickfilm Christmas Special Production Thread

That is AWESOME! This trailer went above and beyond!

Re: Brickfilm Christmas Special Production Thread

That is beautiful work, Mosh.

Re: Brickfilm Christmas Special Production Thread

Thanks!

I'll get it and the 30 second cutdown into the dropbox by the end of the week.

Great, be sure to send me a list of credits, including music, voice acting, sounds, animation, etc. in a text file so I can copy/paste and not have to worry about misspelling anything.

It would be nice to have the words "click for full trailer" at the bottom or near the end of the commercial, so viewers can just click on the screen to see the full thing. I'll let you add that text so it matches the aesthetic of your trailer, and I'll put a link hitbox on it once it's on youtube.

Re: Brickfilm Christmas Special Production Thread

I figured out my signature!  I think it looks pretty good.
Thanks for the help!
