Coulda sworn we already had one of these threads. Anyways, my first brickfilm was first uploaded to YouTube in July 2010, back when I would make a new brickfilm everyday (as well as publish one everyday). At 35 seconds long, it was called Just A Regular Family, and it was completely unscripted and unprofessionally made, but we've all gotta start somewhere. I actually think I even made a "long-awaited sequel", as I remember the video description saying.
Since its deletion long ago, along with most of my older videos that I had made when I was only ten years old, I've made no plans to re-release it or reconstruct it--even considering how short it is. But, what follows in this post is a rough memory of how the film went along.
*MOUTH-MADE SOUND FX*
BOY: Hey, mom! I'm home!
*MORE MOUTH-MADE FOOTSTEPS*
BOY: Hey, dad. Do you think I could go out skating later?
DAD: No, go do your homework.
*HEAVY AND DEAFENING SIGH BLOWN INTO MIC*
*FOOTSTEPS PROCEED OFFSCREEN*
*CUT TO BEDROOM SHOT*
*DOOR SWINGS OPEN*
*DEAFENING MOUTH-MADE FOOTSTEP SOUNDS*
*BOY WALKS INTO ROOM*
BOY: Oh. Wait. I don't have any homework!
Yup, a brickfilm that is lost to cyberspace and bears no existence on this Earth any longer. A brickfilm that lies at the bottom of the underbelly of a legacy, one that presently exists solely because of onion rings and critically-panned Josh Brolin movies. A brickfilm so unknown to its viewers, that there are no closing credits at the end that spell out the name of the then-elementary schooler that created it. A brickfilm so unfunny, that its own video description lauds it as "funny".
This, my friends, is what started it all.
Have you seen a big-chinned boy?
