The Game

Youtube

This is our entry into VN's AniExer-size competition.

This film was inspired by the short story "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell.  You don't need to know the story to enjoy the film, but it's worth checking out.

Here's a link to the story if you're interested:

Re: The Game

This is my favorite entry. The animation and story were both thoroughly enjoyable. The start was very entertaining with the minifig view.
I like the ending because the main character cannot escape his fate but tries to and fails.
Superb! Good luck in the contest!

Re: The Game

That was excellent! The animation was smooth and the voice acting was flawless. The aspect ratio however was quite awkward especially at the beginning.  You also might want to do just a bit more explaining next time. I understand It was based on the story but a little more would have been nice.

Re: The Game

FancyPants, This is incredible.
Seriously, When I saw the title I thought it was a film done with cheap digital camera at 5 fps. Then I saw it and I was absolutely blown away.I can't wait for another animation by you.

Re: The Game

I was a bit disappointed when he died at the end, but good otherwise. mini/smile

I completely agree with you on both fronts.  The problem of the aspect ratio is the result of the fact that I had to brickfilm on PC for the first time with programs I'd never used before, and through that learning curve there were some hiccups.  I agree that the story was a bit rushed, I probably bit off a little more than I could chew with the time I had, but I'm still pleased with how it turned out.

I thought someone might say that mini/smile

I just didn't want it to have that hollywood style ending where the protaganist is triumphant against all odds.  Kind of an unpleasant suprise if you know what I mean.

Thanks again, I'm glad you all liked it!

Re: The Game

That's on my list of best brickfilms ever! How'd you manage to make such a great film in such a small amount of time? mini/jaw

Re: The Game

This was probably the best entry to Ani-Exersize in my opinion.
I liked the fight scenes.

Re: The Game

Damn that was impressive. You won.

Btw, I lost the game. mini/wink

Re: The Game

Amazing! i was just shocked by far how well that turned out. it is fab. i was too a bit sad when he died. but they were made of plastic. but with that work i felt he was real!!! oh boy time to head back to earth! i always say....

mini/rolleyes And you say i'm picky....

Persist.

Re: The Game

Lol Saw Movies fail

Re: The Game

It was really... Organic!!!
I liked it very much. They weren't just like LEGO minifigs which aren't able to move so much. It really flows. And cinematography was also well done. But the use of camera was the best.
I hope you win good prizes at the contest...
