Hi all,

I have no idea where to post this, so I choose the Others Theme.

My First try for a Brickfilmlogo. I'd like to make a Legomovie and will post some Set-Shots soon.

How do you like the camera, does it look realistic?

I love the shot and the lighting, but text doesn't seem as good to me. Perhaps it is the font, and I would also suggest not cutting off the bottom stars. I think maybe the text is just too bright and clean compared to the shadows produced by the harsh spotlight in the picture. Perhaps a different font coloring would also help.

I hope these comments are helpful. I truly love your little camera build; it took me several look-overs to tell it was even LEGO!

Thank you! :classic:

Thank you, that is the type of criticism I wanna hear! :thumbup: I'm also not very pleased with the Text, which color do you suggest?

What a great camera design, I didn't even think that was Lego when I first looked at it! :blush: Very nicely built, and the lighting gives it a very classic movie look, just lovely. :wub:

I would agree that the text looks quite bright, perhaps you should try out some darker shades of red? The font is quite nice, perhaps try a few others in that style though just to compare and see what you like best. In terms of the stars, I would suggest not making them quite so stretched; on an aesthetic level I prefer thinner stars. This might also help to bring the bottom one above the edge of the picture so it isn't cut off, too. Again try a few other shades of gold/yellow for these too, perhaps aim for something similar to the gold at the bottom of the red box.

Just fiddle with it until you are happy with how it looks; it is very nice as it is though, good job.

I'm going to move this to the "Brick Flicks & Comics" forum as it is related to Brickfilms if that is alright with you, may get more attention there. :classic:

I label this holy crap impressive.

The camera is off the charts good. The font looks good, and the color doesn't bother me. The cut off stars are the only strange part.

So I have an other question:

What do you think, what skin color should I build with...?

Yellow, Flesh, Both together!?!

Maybe I'm just a traditionalist, but I prefer LEGO minifigs be yellow. Fleshtones just seem unnatural.

Yes I think I use the yellow ones...also because I only have 30 fleshies! and including at least 5 indianas and 2 Dastans :sadnew:

My word. The lighting really takes the scene from superb to realistic. Really looks fantastic. So many touches that make it look real, such as the letters at the tables, and the coatrack, and the posters. Keep it up!

I think it would be possible to make a brickfilm with that studio but it could get a little tricky because of all the tiles. It looks great and I can't wait to see your brickfilm.default_thumbup.gif

Now THAT is what I call a set!

Now on to if you'd be able to animate with it...

I have to agree with Captain Genaro, It would be possible, But a real challenge due to all those tiles.

Maybe you should keep you're sets studded in future.

great work anyway, And good luck with you're Brickfilm, I can't wait to see it :classic:

Thank you both for your nice comments, I will give it a try! :classic:

The only things that will happen are that the bar man and the man will go to answer the phone, so it will hopefully be possible.

Hi all,

here we go again.... :classic:

Two other Sets for my Brickfilm.

Gallery (in Black)

The undertakers are carrying the dead body of Sir John to the outside, while the police arrives. The gardener devotedly take his hat off....

But this scene will probably never happen in the film.

Nice MOC once again my crabby flavored friend.

Cop 1:Okay lets just skip all evidence and say the butler did it

Butler:But we all saw the gardener kill him!

Cop 2: No buts it's always the butler

Butler:For god's sake man he wrote his name in the body!

Cop 1:That proves nothing now get in the car!
