This was great! The writing, voice acting and set design was excellent. I especially loved the mouth animation with the moustache moving. Great work!

A wonderful brickfilm. The winner of Cine Brick 2018! One of the best I've seen these last few years. Script, animation, editing, set design, great quality in everything. Congratulations.

+ Beautiful lighting!
+ Incredibly clean and smooth motion
+ Fantastic set design, especially the tent!
+ Great facial effects - the mouth, the eyebrows, the mustache!
+ The dabbing acrobat was simply the best
- Clowns freak me out but that doesn't affect your score

Overall, a great film!

This was fantastic. It's unusual to see a murder mystery type of story in brickfilm form, which made the story feel quite refreshing and on top of that, I think it was a genuinely great mystery with one epic ending that truly caught me by surprise.

As well as having a well crafted story, I really like the look of the film. Aesthetically, a lot of thought went into the lighting to fit the mood you were going for. I especially liked the use of the crystal ball to light the caravan. Lighting is one of those major elements to a film that a lot of people forget to put the right amount of attention on, but you really put a lot of effort into yours. It ended up being one of the things that really sold the story for me and really got me engaged.

The special effects were also great, particularly the mouth animation. I really liked how you digitally altered the mustache of the strongman, that was a nice little detail that I wouldn't of thought of myself.

Overall, a highly well crafted film, with great special effects, a genuinely engaging story and a highlight of 2018!

This was a very impressive film. The mouth animation was probably the most seamless I've seen in a brickfilm thus far, great work. The cinematography was mostly pretty stand out in this film as well, with great use of colour and LEDs. I think the only thing that stuck out was the composite shot at the start of the film, showing the exterior of the circus. In an animation mostly grounded in real sets, the mix of different sized elements didn't quite blend. The story was good, however. This film was a great achievment and I enjoyed it.
