I thought this was entertaining and well made. Reminded me of TV shorts that I used to see every so often.

Fun stuff, enjoyed this. It has a real timeless quality to it, & I liked the way you created a fun world to go along with the car.
Small niggling things - maybe a bit longer than it needed have; the carousel music cut out very suddenly.
Fantastic short though, it really stands out from others here

I'm glad you liked it. I think I might have rushed the sound editting a little, but overall, I am really proud of it.

I really liked this. I thought it was very well made, the animation is far better than i could even attempt to do, its a very well made short.

That was interesting. I didn't like the crying sound, but it was still good. Artsy, don't see too much of that here.

Wow, i just realised, you spelt the title wrong, i think. Its supposed to be Small parts, instead its Snall parts. Heh.

this was excellent. the animation was first class. How exaclty is ti achieved using video ? Can some cameras do single frame or is it a matter of shooting a very short shot and choping a single from out in post ? And how are the shots done where the animated item is in a postion where it could possibly have stayed there for a shot, say in mid air or when some of the pieces cllimed onto the car. I assume the yellow sloping brick's movement was done with some kind of morph ?
anyway gave it 5 stars. Brilliant

I use a webcam (Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000) and software for stop motion animation called AnimatorDV
. You take a frame at a time, and the software compiles it into an AVI file.

Most of that was done with the animators best friend, Blu Tac, but I did use Chromanator on a few occasions to mask out some wires etc.

No morphing. apart from use of Chromanator here and there, everything was done 'in camera'. The yellow wedge effect was done by using four different bricks, ranging from no slope to shallow slope. I changed the brik in each frame, gradually moving them across the screen. It took, ages, and I had to shoot it four times as I kept losing track and using the wrong bricks.
THanks for taking the time to watch my film, and for the kind comments.

This was really good, I especially liked the reference to magic roundabout, that made me laugh, good job.

I really like this film, I saw it back on brickfilms.com when you first showed it, did not relize you used any FX products to make it at the time, I guess thats the way it should be though.

I really enjoyed this little short. It almost reminded me of a Plymptoon.

One of the things that makes me sad about FX home is that when well done movies like this are uploaded and get the coveted #1 of the top ten, Starwars movies, even if they are not as well done, will still get more downloads per day.

That one has got 5 points from me. Very innovative. Really funny and not the usual "lightsword-test-thing" we've all seen for hundreds of times.
I'm really impressed!

I can tell that it must have taken a lot of time and effort to make! I think that it turned out really well, and is probably one of the best short animations that I have seen!

This was really cool. Probably the best lego movie since Delivery. It reminded me of the kind of movies my mom would rent for me at the library and have me watch when I wouldn't shut up. My main problem is not enough actually happened to keep my interest for the entire film, but the smooth animations and concept (not to mention an awesome, slimy little yellow triangular piece) warrants this movie a 4 from me. bitchin

Wow, the response to this has really surprised me! Thanks to everyone for all of the nice comments and good ratings.
I just starting production on a new stop-mo short, which will make extensive use of EffectsLab and Chromanator. I should start filming in about a month, and I think that there will be about 4 weeks of shooting. So I should be posting it up by the end of August.
Thanks again for the positive feedback

Nice work! How long did it take you?

Overall it took about 2 months. There was about 4 weeks of filming (much to my wife's annoyance, as I took over the dining room!). There then followed 5-6 weeks of post production etc. I was only able to do an hour or two every day, so it is not as long at it seems.

This was a great movie. I love the detailed animation that is in the movie. Especially the legos that don't just silde, they slink. I am a freqent brickfilmer and I can tell you that I thought that movie was in the top 10 best lego movies I've ever seen. I am not sure how you did this. The only thing I do when I film a stop motion is click the record button and then click it again. Then I just speed it up. Mine only have about 14 fps. Yours probably have all 24! And I love how the backrounds are so undetailed. Over all I would give the movie 5 stars. 10 out of 10.
