X//:ARENA

Youtube

Six super-powered contestants. Only one will survive.

THIS FILM CONTAINS VIOLENCE, GORE, AND AWESOME MUSIC.

There are a lot of mistakes in this one, but hopefully if nothing else it will help me prevent those mistakes in future releases. I left the shots of my hand in the character intros in on purpose for effect. Enjoy!!

Yes, I am still making the bank heist film. My life is busy, but work is being done. Thank you to all who sent lines.

Re: X//:arena

F-f-f-f**k, Brickyman. I'm astounded at how good you've become. I loved this so damn much, I think it might have just reached my top 10 favourite Brickfilms, and that's after 6 years of watching them.

I know people say 'story is key, story is key', but in my book entertainment is key - and this damn well entertained me. Admittedly the animation at times was ever so slightly choppy, and the camera angles weren't the best, but nevertheless, it had almost constant smooth animation, a great idea*, great effects (Were any of them done in post-production?), nice characters and 'awesome music'! Also, I must say, the hand thing was a great idea.

5/5

*I'd love if you would make this into a series, but have brickfilmers. Hee hee, that'd be cool.

Re: X//:arena

Great job, see my youtube comment

I'm in college, hopefully I'll animate when I'm out!

Re: X//:arena

While a fight with just rock-throwing would have been way more awesome, this was pretty cool.

Noice!
Did you use wire for the guy's lightning effect?

This was amazing, great work brickyman!

Re: X//:arena

I loved it. I can't wait to see more from you!

Re: X//:arena

Nice job!

New sig coming soon...

Along with brickfilms...

Re: X//:arena

This is one cool fighting animation. The hands did get annoying at times, but it didn't matter that much. The animation was decent and the music was epic. Too bad, my favorite guy was the teleporter. mini/sad

Re: X//:arena

We voted for super speed...good thing we didn't bet money...  Anyhow, a solid effort on your part Brickyman.  The animation is definitely an improvement over your previous films, and the concept was very well executed.  We found ourselves getting very involved in the fights, and at times we almost forgot they were LEGO.  If it were not for the blinking-hands-of-death and the slightly dull lighting we would have enjoyed this film more, but it was still very fun to watch.  Nice work. mini/smile

Same for me. But well, my second favourite character was superstrenght. My youtube comment looks like it comes from any youtuber that says "AMAZING, OMG etc.", but I really loved it.I wasn't annoyed by the hands. Good job 5/5

Re: X//:arena

I enjoyed it a lot! And I wasn't annoyed either.

New sig coming soon...

Re: X//:arena

I think that the character introws where awesome(yes the bit with the hands) but the Arena was a bit dull. Animation was great though.

Yeah a kind of plastic coated wire I got from a toy car my brother bought, lit up with an LED torch. mini/tongue

Thanks for the feedback, it's appreciated. mini/smile

Re: X//:arena

This could have sucked. This could have been one of those really generic and bad 'fight' brickfilms that are nothing but a badly animated fight sequence between two Matrix dudes.

If I was sexually confused then I would kiss you for not letting such a thing happen.

Sure, there are tiny flaws - but the whole thing is interesting and really imaginative. I'm glad you chose superheroes over guns and stuff, since it allowed for some really great animation and moments which I have not seen in a Brickfilm before.

Oh and not to mention the music which makes me want to leap off my chair and dance....

Re: X//:arena

Y'know, I thought this was actually pretty cool. While the presentation lacks polish, the film makes up for it with a nice bevy of practical effects. The fighting was too stiff to be noteworthy, but the creativity and appropriate music choice work well. Nice job.

Re: X//:arena

OH MY GOD!
That was awesome!

What he said.^  But it could have been more like a tournament, where the winner of one round keeps fighting more guys until he dies, then the guy that beats him does the same.

Re: X//:arena

Especially the lightning dude. But the lighting for the general set looked a bit too orangey. It's kind of bothersome.
And I really don't like blood. It also looked very fake to me.
