That's awesome, DarkDragon. You say this is your first attempt? Looked pretty smooth to me. Great choice of song. You really illustrated it well.

Very impressive job for your first Brick Flick DD! The movements are quite spontaneous and gotta love that "imagination" effect - very cleverly done.
Just curious what program did you use (iMovie?) and how long did you take to finish this? (I'd like to get an idea how much time to invest when I attempt my first brick flick too )
I used Apple's Final Cut Pro to do the edit, all of it is done there. The photos were all done by hand with just my camera. Hmm, I guess I'd say it took me around 40 manhours to complete. That's not counting building the sets, just for the photos and editing.
Like I mentioned before, I am fairly experienced with film and animation, but this is my first time with LEGO. As a general rule, for stop-motion, I find that it takes 1 hour per 3 seconds of finished video. Of course that can vary depending on how advanced the animation is, how many elements you are moving, how much you have to go back and reshoot, and how much time you spend in the edit (doing effects/etc).
