I can't say he speaks for himself, because it's currently a silent movie!
The aim was to try a couple of alternative animation styles; articulated and fixed build. Looks a little clunky because I decided to go small (to keep the cost and time down!) and so essentially make a movie of a lego man coming to life.

It's a proof of concept. Now I shall try a few more ideas out!
I absolutely agree with Thomas. I just can't believe it is your first animation since it is fantastic in all aspects - the character is awesome, his moves are very very convincing, there are many great ideas in it. Consider me a huge fan of your work. I am eagerly looking forward to your following animations.
Wow, that's a great start. Can't wait to see more! Great job! :-)) Stop motion animation, another thing I'd like to do one day - So many ideas and never enough time for all of them ... :-/ We'll have to do the things one by one ;-))
