Wayward Tides [Spirit of Adventure]

Watch now!

Made for the Bricksinmotion Spirit of Adventure contest. It's a simple love story of a man and a woman, and the many adventures they have together.

This is dedicated to the memory of my wonderful sister Joanna, who recently passed away. I had only just completed this film when she died. Dedicating this film to her memory is the very least I can do. She was loved by so many, not just by her family, but by so many friends.

What an amazing film! The story was executed extremely well.

Re: Wayward Tides [Spirit of Adventure]

I can easily say this is your greatest film so far. The music fit perfectly and the story was very well done!

Re: Wayward Tides [Spirit of Adventure]

Thank you, guys. I really appreciate the positive response of the film. I was really looking forward to hearing all your thoughts, and it appears as though this might be my most well received film to date.

I really wanted to do something different. So many brickfilmers excel at comedy, but I'm just not a very funny person. I can't write comedy to save my life, so I usually go for a more serious approach to themes, which does have it's advantages at times, because mine are usually different.

If I haven't said this before, I would like to take this time to thank all of you who have sent messages of sympathy at this difficult time. Nothing will change what happened, but knowing so many care means so much

Definitely your best so far, William. Great job conveying the story without dialogue - the music definitely helped here, and fit really well. Good luck!

* A 1x1 brick with a 1x1 tile on top of it could be anything. But the way he's holding it, it can only be one thing!
* That wave at 0:44!
* The blackout at 1:38 could be a beat longer; would give us enough time to process what just happened, and feel like there's a passage of time before he comes to.

Was this music composed for the film? Because it fits well, not only in timing, but in the simple elegance of the piece. Just curious.
