Director's Comments

Film#2 from 'Funny Boys Films'
In Jan 2007 whilst researching Stop Animation, I stumbled across Blunty3000s' Lego Stopmotion Animations. I hadn't considered Lego up to that point, but loved his films. I have always had a love of Lego and it seemed the obvious medium for me from that point on. As a little 'thank you' to Blunty for getting me into this seriously addictive and silly pass time, I decided that my second film should be a mini homage to Blunty. Love him or hate him, there is no denying that he was once a prolific brickfilmer. Whilst not the most artistic cinematography wise, he was one of the funniest.
I was stuck for a story line for a while, then I am sorry to say, I saw Bluntys VLog entry 'C*** in a Sock' video, which was a test by Blunty to see how far he could push the YouTube censorship boundaries. Needless to say, a video of himself naked except for a sock on a certain part of his anatomy was quickly banned by the YouTube censor. However it gave me an idea...
The film has lots of references to Bluntys work and was done with his approval.
