Lego Pygmalion

https://youtu.be/c72CZd0WILQ

I made this Brickfilm about Ovids: "Pygmalion" for school. Pygmalion is a lonely artis so he builds a statue in form of a human being. He falls in love with his creation and in the end the statue comes to life.

Nice job on this! The movement of the character is really smooth.

"Animator Unknown" everywhere else.

Re: Lego Pygmalion

Yes!  This was a beautiful rendition of the ideas of the original novel.  All the animation was completely smooth, even walking on tile elements!  I like how the speed of motion was slightly faster than reall life, giving the entire film a slightly surreal feel, while remaining grounded by an emotional piano score.  A nice added touch was the man dressed as Batman int he movie theatre.

I like brickfilms without dialogue, and this is very powerful use of the medium.

Incidentally, I was inspired by Pygmalion and recorded a song of the same title.  Only the demo is online now, but you may listen here if you wish.  It's Kraftwerk inspired, particularly "Hall Of Mirrors"

When I watch today's TV and streaming media, I weep for the talented writers that can't get a TV contract.
Never apologize for doing what's right.

Re: Lego Pygmalion

Thank you both for the feedback! Yes, it was one of my goals here to animate in a smooth style. The slightly faster movement was not intended but you are right. It gives a bit of a surreal feel mini/smile
I've also listened to your song. Great lyrics with a deep meaning.
