If you've ever wondered what would transpire if Assassin's Creed were meshed with Little Red Riding Hood, and you also happen to be a LEGO enthusiast, this is the Brickfilm for you!
About this creation
Before I discovered the online MOCing community, my primary LEGO interest was Brickfilm. After making my video entry for the Mayos latest contest, I was inspired to revisit the art of LEGO animation. The result was this dark-humored little video. Don't look for a deeper meaning, you won't find one. I was simply trying my hands at animation again and for some reason pointless action sequences are fun to tackle.
Watch the Brickfilm below, complete with original music (including some anticlimactic Inception-ish blares, because those are always fun)!
Haha nice stuff you got here, Ian! Being a big fan of assassins creed myself I really enjoyed this. The music is very nice and feels almost straight out of one of the games. The way riding hood took out the wolf was great too, and just overall great cinematography.

How long did you spend learning the skills to do that?
Well, before I joined MOCpages, I used to animate a lot more. Max Pointner and I spent a good year working on a 10 minute Star Wars LEGO animation. I think we both learned a lot during that process. All a brickfilm really takes is some bricks, a camera, a tripod, and lots of patients. :) Thanks for leaving a comment!
Quoting Lego Builders It's good to finally see a Brickfilm from you after seeing the work you did in the previous collaborations with Paul and Max. The haze is a little distracting for me, but maybe that was the atmosphere you wanted to create.
Thank you. I never did any of the animation in those collaborations, so it's been fun to take a stab at it (no pun intended). As for the haze, it just kinda' happened, but I like the atmosphere it creates. After all, she did go into the forest on a "hazy" night...
Bravo Ian! Everything was extremely well crafted, except you forgot to mention "food services" in the credits. Also, that "ALL animals were hurt and killed during the making of this film." ;) Keep 'em coming, these are wonderful!
A very creative concept. It's good to finally see a Brickfilm from you after seeing the work you did in the previous collaborations with Paul and Max. The haze is a little distracting for me, but maybe that was the atmosphere you wanted to create. Great job regardless!

Excellent, it's really good. Great pieces used. Brilliant work done. (Edit, that comment was from my daughter who insisted that we note these exact words). It's a great film btw.
Well then! Special thanks to both you and your daughter. :)
Awesome movie! Most of these I see are very choppy? But yours flowed very naturally you must of shot a lot of frames with very slight movement .i love the first hit than over the back and straight through . Than her walking away excellent! Loved the music and the closing credits .
Hehe, "Hair and Makeup by LEGO"... good one. Very nice animation and the Riding Hood fig is great. The music is excellent as well, the haunting melody at the beginning and end is very Assassin's Creed-esque.

The meter on the music is a little off, but otherwise, excellent work.
Thanks Blake. If you're referring to the Mind Heist-ish bangs, you're completely right, they're not rhythmically aligned. If you hear something in the actual theme, there's a chance of that too. I was working without a metronome.
