What do you get when you mix swashbuckling, film noir, and elements from silent comedy together? Answer: A Night at the Pier

The winning entry for the third 24 Hour Animation Contest, the theme was 'What really happened?' The score was composed by Brian during the contest, parts of it were heavily influenced by 'A Cautionary Song' by The Decemberists.

Re: A Night at the Pier

The animation was somehow impressive, your buddy, Brian, did made some good music like Nightowl, you should also thank Sparks Flying for playing the woman at the end, and I like how the solder's body slid into the bay. You should make another brickfilm sometime, Chris.

Sorry, this is a description I did did credit Sparks Flying when I added the film in this screencast but the credits aren't public at this point.

Some great animation I would have liked it more if the lighting was brighter and the film was in color

I cannot describe how sad it made me when I read this post, kids and there color films...

Re: A Night at the Pier

i find that the animation was incredible,

Re: A Night at the Pier

I agree Sloth. A black and white film makes a lot of difference, in drama and essence, I think black and white makes a more dramatic aproach on ones self.

Re: A Night at the Pier

I like the idea of the film, the light and the music, but's really to short. When I started getting into it the film was over. I have been left back disappointed and hapless. More sad, than amused.

Re: A Night at the Pier

I am sorry A., this film was made for a 24 hour animation contest and we sacrificed quantity of animation for quality of animation.  Maybe one day I'll get around to make a more complete pirate film, but don't hold your breath (my current focus is mad science.)

Re: A Night at the Pier

I'm not crazy about the sound of our footsteps. We were probably low on time but we should have mixed them up a bit more and made them a little quieter. Oh well.

Just say 'No!'

Very good! Loved the visuals.

I sure hope this film is a future indication of the scale of our environments.
