    Sheep

    Hello everyone ! My latest brickfilm... A sheep finds a hat, and decides to wear it. But the herd doesn't like the original idea... A fable about trends and choices in the modern world!

    Sheep

    Well, originally I met the brick-artist Kloou, who created the sheep and was showing them on an exhibition, and I loved them! We eventually decided to work together on a project where we could combine his characters and my animation. Then came the story... I don't know about English people, but in France, we call "sheep" people who love or hate exactly all what the medias tell them to love or hate. It was funny to make something about it. Then came the sheep with a hat. It was an easy yet cool way to make him look different. He was the perfect main character. All the story evolved from these concepts. Thank you everyone for your comments and feedback! Much appreciated! (especially since I wasn't much confident about this brickfilm haha )

    I appreciate that you posted both links on the same page : comparing both sums up the quality of the remastering ! You've put a lot of time and effort in re-making the film, and it shows ! From light flickers to the overall rhythm of the film... Your work adds a lot to the experience. Can't wait for your upcoming projects ! :)

    Hello Everybody ! Henri & Edmond are back, and they need your help ! :) I'm planning to direct a new brickfilm with Henri & Edmond called Plastic Love. I've created a crowdfunding project on the European website Ulule (it's like Kickstarter). Please have a look at the page here, and feel free to contribute and talk about this project to your family, friends, colleagues... The more the information spreads, the more we can achieve our project. You can get DVDs of the film and CDs of the soundtrack, depending on your contribution ! =) If we don't get the money before may 26th, the project is cancelled and all the money goes back to the contributors. Please have a look at it, and make sure to visit Henri & Edmond facebook page here ! Cheers, Maxime

    I used lenses with manual aperture to avoid light flickers, as you mentioned. I think there was a MicroNikkor, a 35mm lens and a 20mm lens. And that's all. It's impossible to make something good with modern lenses whose aperture is controled by the camera. You have slight light flickers. Older, mechanical lenses are the best for stopmotion ! And Yeah, haha, I found those lamps at Ikea. Very useful, you can adjust your lights very easily. And I also had colored... hum... "paper" (can't find the right word) to put on the lamps, for the different ambiances. Some shots were really long to stage. For exemple, the sunset shot took 1 day to prepare (only the light, no shooting). I think we were completely mad to do such things. Anyway, good experience. :)

    I used a Nikon D90 with a MicroNikkor lens. I didn't use any animation software... only applied maths in order to know how much picture for each line. The movie was compiled and edited with Final Cut Pro on a MacBook. I think the sound engineer used ProTools for the sound design. =)

    Thanks everybody for your kinds words and support. I’ll try to add some additional videos about the making of the film as soon as possible ! @Brickton This is called stopmotion, and this is frame-by-frame animation. If you have any questions, do not hesitate, I will answer with great pleasure ! @Leg Godt Gud We didn't build all the city, in fact we built different sets for each scenes : house exterior/interior, firehouse exterior/interior, street etc… depending on what was necessary in the screenplay. @L@go The shooting and editing took 8 months, but of course there’s a lot more going on when you’re creating a movie, such as story writing, animation tests, sound design… Thanks for you comment, having television/cinema professionals watching and commenting this movie is really important for me. @Front Share it, share it ! I already sent the link to some people from Lego Denmark I know a little bit… I do really hope the Lego team will enjoy it. …And by the way : Happy New Year ! =)

    Hello Peanuts ! I used 15fps for the animation. In my opinion this is the best compromise between smoothness and time spent on animation. Thanks for your kind words, it's really rewarding when you spend so much time on a project. I hope to have enough time to prepare more brickfilms !
