Well, the entire thing was titles. The only animation we could see was through the titles. It didn't look bad, though. Can't wait to see more animation from you.

It was ok, I would have liked it with more animation or more visible animation and less titles.

I would have agree with the previous posters, that the amount of titles was a bit excessive. I did like what little animation I did see, especially the ninja fight.The music you selected for your trailer was perfect. I can not wait to see more of your animation.

What type of equipment/camera did you use for the stop-motion animation?

I second G2's question.

Also, try to avoid using overused music. That music is awesome alright, but after seeing it in more than 10 films, it gets a little boring. Maybe not boring, it's just that as I hear the music, I think of all of the other films that use it. Minor problem, though.

I use a Canon Powershot A530, and no other options are available to me.

actually, i thought the music/workmanship was PERFECT. though it was hard to see what the animation was (and billing this as an animation is a god damn lie), it was absolutely hillarious. overdone music was also just the right choice - you want to make this seem like it's the same movie you've seen a million times before, but hopped up on steroids and cocaine (gu-gu-gu-yeahhhah!). and if i'm not mistaken, that music originated in... rocky?

Well, unlike IV, I didn't actually like that music. It's too overused (yeah, I think it's bad thing) and it didn't fit into that trailer as is should have. And the title: THE ULTIMATE MOVIE. It's not too original, you know?

And for the animation itself. I would have liked to see some more stop-motion. As so many have stated before, the animation was full of titles. The stop-motion which I saw was quite good. But it included so little stop-motion that sometimes you can't even tell what happens there.

But overall it wasn't too bad.

That's actually a very good camera to use. Many brickfilmers use Powershots.

Would you have any advice on securing one so it won't move? That is my primary problem, shakiness.

Get a tripod, or secure it firmly to a table or something using duct tape.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

I have a tripod, it gets rattled around though... I can't believe I hadn't thought of duct tape! You're genius! (I'm not kidding)

Then you will never be an engineer. Duct tape is the tape that holds our society togeather, not law and order. Leaky piping? Duct it. Desk falling apart (like mine)? Duct it. Just got robbed? Jump on the bastard, mummify him with duct tape, then haul him off to the police station. Ya know, someone should figure out how to do duct tape in Brikwars.

Yeah, like a "duct tape fixes everything" feat, where the character can revive units, rebuild the deathstar, anything. That'd actually be pretty cool.
