This film was created for the Brickfilms.com Words of Wisdom competition, in which entrants had to create a short (2 mins or less) film centred around a well-known quote or saying. I quite like this one -- it’s the first film I’ve done that came out pretty much the way I planned it to begin with.
As these things go, this was a pretty fast film to make. After a few false starts (see Unused Scripts) I went from finding the quote to finishing up the editing over the course of a weekend. Believe me, that’s fast in stop-motion terms.
Since, rather bizarrely, I’ve had some complaints about the nudity in this film, I’ve put together a “clean” version for those of a more delicate constitution. I’ll save the discussion of exactly how a naked plastic toy can be “dirty” for some other time.
Some behind the scenes pics, for those who like that sort of thing:
