FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q.Why animate with Lego
A. Lego has a massive Minifigure Collection, We imagine stories with our Lego creations when we are Kids... realizing them and making them in films called Brickfilms is the next Big step. Also, Lego enables you to do things that aren't so easily achieved in live action films. Imagine making a space opera live action, then with Lego!
Q.How do you measure success with a brickfilm?
A.Some Brickfilmer's measure their success in how many views their videos/Brickfilm's receives. I don't. For me success is one of two major things: 1) the sense of accomplishment for creating a good Brickfilm with Lego that people will enjoy, and 2) Any comments from possible viewers.
Q.What does it take to be successful at at Lego animation?
A.To be successful at Lego animation for me I think requires 3 elements, in order of priority: 1) Patience and imagination 2) A well-written story with a good solid message or theme, and 3) Technical skills. I think 3 isn't as crucial as 1 and 2 but not to be neglected. Viewers will overlook amateurish animation if the story is entertaining or thought-provoking. One's technical expertise increases with practice.
Q.Overall what is your opinion of the brickfilming community?
A.My overall opinion of Brickfilming: Making Brickfilming is great it opens up the imagination a lot. My reasons are: 1) their films would open a whole new perspective, 2) there'd be a wider pool of both male and female voice actors/ actress, 3) you can create anything Lego that your mind think of and 4) Lego is unversially for everyone.
