I really enjoyed that DerTarchin. I was surprised because normally I get bored after watching an animation with no real story, but I still liked this quite a bit. I would say your work has payed off. :-)
Thanks! Nice to hear!
My complaint, and it's key, is that I couldn't understand what the Mime was doing, as the frequent crowd clapping gave clues that were either misleading or completely confusing. It took me until over halfway of the way through the film to figure out what exactly was going on.
yeah, that was a problem I foresaw. You realize that even in real life, understanding what a mime is doing is hard unless they're really good, so a lego version was an extreme challenge.
That's why in the description I said for those who didn't understand the first time to view it another time. It's hard to understand and I thought putting sound effects would ruin it's authenticity.
I'm in college, hopefully I'll animate when I'm out!
