Great video! I can't what to see what happens next.

Here are my suggestions. The Marines should go back and get their man. Isn't their motto "Leave no man behind"? Samuel and John should escape, but with a ship full of Marines, I don't know how your going to pull that off. Keep up the great work.

Ha. That is very cool. I love animation done with legos. It must have taken some time to animate this. Good story as well. Keep up the good work. And yea I agree with Gen. Knowledge that they should retrieve their lost marine, I have not heard of the Royal Navy marooning their own men.

Drink Up

Yeah it took a long time. First I was rushing to get it done so I could enter the Nicktoons built by me contest, but then I passed the 2min limit so I wasn't quite as frantic. The navy will go back for the marines in episode 2, and there might be a little suprise in that episode too....

Speaking is way too monotonic.

Well a quick glance at the credits proves your theory that it was all done by one person - ME!

As you can probably tell, animation is my thing - not photoshop.

Hahahahaha! I wish. There would be no money in that even if it was a real job. Shame it's not though. I just made this as a hobby. If you compare it to my other youtube videos and then watch some proffesional brickfilms, you will see that Im no pro.

But thanks anyway!

Hey,

Sorry for the double post, but I had this idea, that really is too big for editing a previous one. I might also start a thread in the general news and disscussion, but I thought I would see how I went here first.

What are your thoughts on a new brickfiling forum? I understand a lot of the Eurobricks and Classic-Pirates.com community are brickfilming enthusiasts, and I thought it would be a good idea to have a forum for brickflicks.

Tell me what you think, and keep the ideas rolling for future episodes of Oceans on End.

That's a great idea Capt. Zuloo. I'm surprised there isn't already a forum for brickfiliming. I love to watch brickfilms, and would like to try my hand at it someday.

I really recommend you do. Most of the software I used to make this film, I downloaded free off the net with the exeption of Vegas Movie Studio and Adobe Photoshop which I borrowed from a friend.

If we can't get a forum going, and you still want to make a brickfilm, I'll be happy to help - just PM me. And that goes for everyone.

Excellent animation, but terrible sound mix!

Makes me want to have subtitles and switch off the sound completly.

Aw! That was a bit mean! Oh well. I know what you're saying though. But do you mean just the voices or the sound effects too? Because I am hoping to introduce some mates into voicing for future episodes. But thanks anyway!

The sound design was okay, although steps on sand sound diffrent than on concrete :pir-tongue:

It was rather the voice that was a bit poor. Not in acting, but in recording. And the mixing was poor, many sounds were too quiet.

I´m working in the audio business, so if you need advice and/or help, just lemme know! The video´s worth it!

You know, I might take you up on that offer, but let me see how I go by myself as I worked out how to add more audio tracks to Vegas Movie Studio, thus giving me more control over the volume of each effect or sound clip. To record, I just used a $30AUD microphone, and an NCH Software WavePad demo. So I didn't expect it to be top notch.

Great video, and really great animation. I agree that a Brickfilm forum would be great, or at least a subforum in community or something. Keep up the good work :thumbup:

I actually think a Brickfilm forum would be big enough to have its own forum if that makes sense. Dunno, just a suggestion. And thanks for the posotive comment.
