Hey guys!
A month ago today, I started working on a Space brickfilm. It will be rather long, approx. half an hour, and I expect it will be done near the end of this year.
I don’t want to reveal a lot of the plot yet, but here’s a little snippet of animation that I’m quite proud of.
I’ll keep you updated on the status of this film as time goes on.

Ah nice! Looks good.

UPDATE: April 13th 2020
It’s been a while but this is still very much being worked on. I’ve finished what is more or less act one (minus a few complex shots I plan to come back to later)
I’ve spent some time making a new set for a barren, alien planet. Also learned about three point lighting, which made me feel like a total idiot for missing out on something so essential. I figured, new setting is the perfect time to start doing the lighting correctly. Here is a BTS shot of my new set w/ lighting setup:

Also as far as pre-production goes, I decided that storyboards were really not my thing, so I planned out the rest of the film in a detailed written format. At first I thought the format was not well suited to planning a dialogue-free film, but I found I can convey my vision more accurately with words than with my scribbles. I’m keeping the storyboards I have tho, they’re useful for filling in gaps in the project file.
So anyway, that’s how progress has been going. Judging by what I have so far relative to the amount of the story it covers, the film is on pace to be probably 15-20 minutes.
See you next update.
Tomorrow I’ll send a picture showing how this setup looks in-camera

Well, I promised I'd show what the set looked like in-Camera, so here it is:

I'm happy with how this shot turned out, the little wobble on the bounce was unintentional, but as Bob Ross would put it, a "happy accident"
Of course I'll need to do some masking before this makes it to the final cut...

Man that looks really good.

Your animation is getting so much smoother Awesomepants.
