Thanks for the shout-out! (I had no idea I was considered "prominent" enough to merit a mention, haha.)
When I first saw your film Loyalty, it made me rethink my approach to brickfilming. I think about it often, and, honestly, seeing it helped me to better find my own creative direction. (Just compare my THAC X brickfilm with my THAC XIII brickfilm for an example.) Loyalty's story stood out to me, and, still does to this day.
And, it's already pushing 2 years now, right... #Loyalty2024

You've definitely improved the production values over the first episode, and it's a pretty good overview, but as it is it feels rather short and cursory, and it doesn't say much that is new if I'm perfectly honest. I definitely think that this would greatly benefit from a longer and more-in-depth analysis... If you're intending to make this a regular sort of thing, I also think this series could really use some more information from the creators/brickfilmers themselves, perhaps even an interview or two.
My ultimate goal is to make the CinematiCritics a half-hour to 45 minute podcast. I think that, for a resurrection, I'd probably review a little closer to how I did in the original pilot; Two feature films, followed by two brickfilms. Games and other creative outlets would probably be shelved until a holiday special or that sort of thing came up.
IDK. I really want to try one more go at a pilot, just to get into the swing of things easier. If it's successful, I hope to continue it into a series. Either way, I'm so glad that I was able to start with the 10th Anniversary of Beast. I have such a connection with that brickfilm, so it's fitting that it is/was a topic of both pilots.
