I realize this film was released earlier this month so it’s not truly Brickfilm of the Week, but the film deserves attention so I figured I would write about anyways. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Bionicle28 as a filmmaker, you should be. In fact, shame on you for not being familiar. I’ve been staying updated with his films for a while now and it always amazes me the quality he achieves in every video. In this video, he uses a unique format. Instead of going about the story in a normal way, he bases the style off of a video game review.
The first thing that’ll catch your eye in this video is the title screen. “Dang, that looks a lot like a real video game!”; my thoughts exactly. Like every video by this director, the animation is always spot on. The characters move about the set naturally and it’s definitely one of the highlights of the film. This flick also offers a fair amount of subdued witty humor, such as the names of the characters and some of the dialogue. The whole “Mock Video Game” idea is actually worth a few chuckles itself. If I were to search for one critique, I would have to say that some of the voice acting is weak at times. However, because the whole video is a mock-up, it didn’t really detract from the film in any serious way.
This director deserves more views, so be a good lad and give it a viewing! He has a style unlike any other brickfilmer I’ve seen and his animation is truly fantastic. Keep an eye out for his upcoming films and, did I forget to mention… this film has bunnies in it!?
