This is really cool, you definitely deserved to win. Congratulations! mini/bigsmile

Re: Indus

We need more animators like this! Right now, hate to break it to you guys, our standards are just below the bar.

scratch that, there is no bar.

A Life? Cool! Where can I download one of those from?

Re: Indus

That was pretty cool! I haven't watched this before, but this really is worthy of first place! Great job, Aiwha!

Have you seen a big-chinned boy?

Re: Indus

That was extremely well done.  It's always great to see a fellow animator use a higher framerate like 25fps.  It takes so much patience, but if done right, It really adds a new layer of depth to the animation.

The opening shot was probably my favorite.  Despite some uneven speed here and there, you really pulled off an impressive shot.  I'd love to see the rig you used, as I enjoy animating tracking shots for my films as well.
I also liked the fact that the script has no dialogue.  I have always preferred films with minimal dialogue because when a Lego character "opens his mouth",  in many cases I think it takes the film down a notch because of the lack of professional audio equipment/software and experienced actors, so It's always refreshing for me to see a great film that communicates without using words.

Everything else has great production value too, the lighting, the sets, and the music.  The sound design was rather simple, but effective.

Overall an excellent film! 5/5

Cheers!

Having a brickfilm without dialogues also makes it more international. Everyone understand what it tells.

I made some behind-the-scenes photos :

Re: Indus

The animation is superb.  I am quite stumped as to how you were able to execute such an impressive feat of animation, and would be quite interesting in some behind the scenes information upon how this was possible.
Very good.

Re: Indus

It's good to know there are still good animators out there. This should be the below average standard for brickfilming

Re: Indus

That was absolutely brilliant, it reminded me again the art of brickfilming, and to be honest if the contest produced this film alone it would still have been a success!

As has been said before, the opening shot was wonderful, the animation in general was so smooth and pleasing to the eye and the story was effectively told with some very polished visuals. The theme interoperation was excellent and I honestly couldn't think of a more suitable winner.

Bravo, and I look forward to seeing more great things of you to come!

Re: Indus

This was before my time, so sorry to dig up an old topic, but wow! And your link to the BTS discussion seems to be 404, is there anywhere else I can read about how you achieved this incredible shot?
