My goal with this film was for it to be more drama driven that anything else. Hopefully I did a good job. Parts of it were rushed in order to meet contest deadline but this is it and hopefully it's entertaining.

Without further flack,

It's an amazing Lego Movie, indeed! I really recommend it to every lego fan :pir-wink:

And I really love the characters, specially Captain Blackheart :pir-wub: and the music is also great and very professional :thumbup:

Two words to describe it: WONDERFUL WORK!

Why thank you! I shall have this frontpaged on Classic-Pirates.com for you.

I've watched the first 5 minutes and 40 seconds and you've certainly put a lot of work into this but the result is well worth it.

Wow, thanks for another high-quality film, Doug. :pir-wub:

A gripping storyline, great camera work and great animation. The special effects, especially the water, look stunning, and the music is superb. The way you portrayed the drama and tension worked very well in this movie, especially considering that you're using Lego. I must admit though that I'd prefer a more light-hearted movie as America Outlawed was, but it's nice to see that you're trying different things, and to great effect.

Great work, you've made a stunning movie and I look forward to seeing more of you're films in the future. :pir-sweet:

Yes, this is very well done! :thumbup: It really has that Pirate movie feel to it! And I completely agree to the things TinyPiesRUs has pointed out above.

What software did you use for the water effects, if I may ask, and how did you make objects reflect in the water?

Hey there! I already watched it before on BF.com and thought it was a great film. Lots of nice animation and visual effects. A tremendous job done well here!

I hope you don't mind, but I've already indexed the film in the Film Index !

I've revamped the first post of this thread. So now everyone should be seeing screen shots and YouTube links.

Wow, this is seriously great Lego animation! I don't think anyone could do better!

I've watched the first 5 minutes and 40 seconds and you've certainly put a lot of work into this but the result is well worth it.

I watched about the same amount (I'm not usually patient enough for brickfilms :pir-tongue: ) so I haven't really followed the story, but I see the brilliant quality of this! The only downside is the English accents are a bit off. :pir-sceptic::pir-tongue:

Brilliant animation, this is! :pir_yoda:

Dude that's the best Lego pirate movie I've ever seen! I browse Youtube a lot to watch pirate movies but it's all junk. This one is just awesome! I love the storyline and the sea effects. The sound is perfect, even the voices are clear and it's just lovely to see and hear. I wish you luck on the contest with this very nice entry! :pir-blush:

You used greenscreening didn't you? I tried it and it's quite difficult, you have my respect delivering such a nice movie!

I would set it on a DVD and then sell it. :pir_laugh2:

Good show! Fantastic effort, your best work yet Doug.

I actually liked all the voice acting (despite some comments here), except the first time ruby makes a squeak, I though it was a young boy.

For me the music carries this film very well. The water and keying was tip-top as was the script.

I'll admit I'm a big fan of lego fig dialogue, too much of arms just going up and down. But it kept me entertained to watch this all the way through.

Very well played!

PS. I had trouble with the QT version, it got to about 23 mins and just stutters. Anyone else have this problem?

I havent watched it yet, im downloading it. Just out of curiosity what softwares did you use to create it, and on what platform. I make movies too, i just finished a version of beowulf with legos (a readers impression on how it should be not neciscarily how it exactly was), my favorite softwares are sony vegas movie studio (sound film editing) fxlab pro (special effects) Blender (3d animations water ect) photoshop cs3 (cover art/posters). Also what framerate did you use in this stop motion animation its great.

CPT. Jr,

I can answer some of these questions for you. I know that Doug uses Adobe Premiere (Although Vegas is my choice too) and Adobe Photoshop, and I'm pretty sure he uses Stop Motion Pro too. Would you be able to give me some lessons in blender? Meh, I'll PM you about it.

And is there a thread for this film you speak of?
