Woah this is a really impressive film. It feels big and grand which is really impressive to do in 30 seconds. I love the use of miniature. Everything flowed rather nicely. My only complaint would be I am not a fan of throwing the moral of a film on text at the end but hey you only have 30 seconds.

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

The film really had a lot of action and a big plot for such a short time period. The animation was amazing.

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

Everything was superb. If I had a vote, I'd vote for this.

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

Wow that was so amazing. Im so impressed. Just a question but how did you make the sea so amazing and real I'm assuming its CGI right or is it in camera. Awww that lighting and camera angles just so amazing.

Yeah, I can see that happening. Awesome job, Jay. You're never short of impressing audiences with a marvelous film. You put a lot of hard work into this, and it shows; it really pays off. It's a visually impressive film, and I think it's more of a celebration of the re-release of the LEGO Pirates line.

Have you seen a big-chinned boy?

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

Thanks!

The water is actually semi-transparent layers of stop-mo animated wrapping paper. For the storm scenes I had to mask it into round shapes and animate those in After Effects. Turned out even better than I'd hoped, to be honest!

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

Great entry.  Loved the ship in the storm scene and the spear throwing.  Awesome!!!!!! mini/smile It's going to be difficult for someone to top this one.

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

Easily my favourite entry so far!

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

Love It! - As AuquaMorph pointed out, the grandness of it all is so impressive for such a short film.

Have a nice day! mini/smile

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

This is amazing! How did you fit so much into 30 seconds? Great job.

Mindblowingly awesome.
So much action, adventure and fun crammed into one package.

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

This is impossible to critique. Really I cant think of anything to say, I just wanted to note how amazing this is.

no more brickfilming *sad face*.

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

Though I really like this one (it has pretty great pacing, with a The LEGO Movie-esque timing) I have to say that the effects did damper this film for me. I'm not saying I'm against any sort of non-LEGO effects in brickfilms, on the contrary, anything but, however, this film does seem to overuse them a bit. I'd prefer to see a bit more of the sets and characters at a closer range than to have more "far away shots" boasting a pretty great little idea. Perhaps it's just a creative difference? - but, I just like the look of more "in camera, less effects heavy" brickfilms - especially in contests like this, where 90% of the videos use little to no such elements.

Still, this is one of my favorite brickfilms to come from this contest. I really like it, enough that it substantially boost my enthusiasm for the upcoming DVD - this one will be on it. mini/smile

Re: BiM Celebration: The Journey

Most likely my favorite entry. I really love the scenery, animation, and voice acting, but the ending slogan is a brilliant interpretation of the theme.
