GONK: A Jawa's Story

Why read the description?

For this film, I really wanted to tell a story visually instead of relying on dialogue or lengthy explanations. I believe the purpose of the contest without voices is for that reason alone: to get the point of the story by showing, not telling. If you don't understand something in the film, I leave it up to you to decide your own thoughts, views, and explanations. So sit back, relax, grab some popcorn, and enjoy GONK: A Jawa's Story.

Words cannot describe how much I love this. In my eyes, this is the film that best takes the idea of the Silent Voices contest and runs with it the best. All the characters have voices - through sound effects, albeit - but their actions speak louder and really tell the story. Virtually every bit with the Jawas was dead-on awesome! Maybe some flicker could have been reduced, but that certainly didn't stop me from enjoying this. Great job, Josh, and best of luck in the contest!

Thank you, @chris_gbp , I’m glad I’m not the only one who felt this way! This was truly a piece of art. It’s one of those rare brickfilms that brings my grumpy old self to tears. And the thing is, the premise is so incredibly goofy that the film really had no right to be this emotional, so I give you a thousand bravos.
It’s impressive how you moved the characters on the sand. My only real criticism would be that the characters don’t move their legs, but that’s really not a valid one since the characters weren’t able to anyways. The animation at the beginning is a tad choppy, but really not bad.
I rate this film 11/10, truly a piece of art! If this doesn’t place very, very highly in the contest (i.e. first place), then I am literally going to pee my pants. This film is also deserving of “best brickfilm of the month” I can tell ya, you’ve got my vote at least! I’ve already expressed my interest in a sequel, but whether we get one or not I’m VERY excited to see what you come up with next! Bravo Josh, bravo!
(And encore)

Best of luck to you too, Chris, and thank you for all your kind words.

Wow. I was not expecting this much feedback. Nevertheless, I thank you many times more. You helped hype this movie up before the trailer was even posted. And thanks again for the feedback, it is good to hear what I achieved and what I failed to achieve, as well as what I did not expect to achieve. So thank you for that.

You gave the Jawa character more depth then ever seen before... Great build up with the comic events (e.g. finding a metal detector ) to something ... well ... unexpectedly moving... Great Job!

Thank you! This film just started out as just a comedic concept, but even from the beginning, I wanted to play around with the audience's emotions.
