That was cool, and kinda funny. The effect of the gun expanding was well done, and the sounds matched. it would have been nice to have more fiery muzzle flashes though.

also, try compressing a little more next time, it took a while to download for an 8 second clip.

Download time is a little too long for jess 8 secs. Like the way the gun winds up though, good attention to detail.

Clever short! I like the progression and idea. It's short and sweet and provides a quick cinematic thrill.

As a suggestion for other shorts, you may wish to crop the camera shot in ever-so-slightly to avoid the extraneous space, as this is distracting to the overall effect. To circumvent this, you may wish to add a little "lego landscape" to hold attention to the foreground, before the eye naturally observes the background. I understand this was to test muzzle flares, so I suggest this for future pieces which I hope to see.

As stated in the aforementioned post, a little compression in aspect ratio couldn't hurt. smile This would make the viewing experience a bit more pleasant for viewers and fans.

Good stuff and great stop motion presentation!

I noticed the light changed per frame. I suggest you not use your flash on your camera and to use a stable light. It's very important to keep the lighting consistent.

Wasn't using any programs, but I think that's pretty funny still.

no affence, but I didnt think much of the language used in the brick film, toma41 and the film had a rather low frame rate. Have a look at brickfilms.com you will find some very good films there including a 70 Minute star wars parady.
