Maybe I'm new here, but I have never seen, and never expected to see, a stop-motion short film that included both Lego and some disturbingly realistic great wads of jism. Imagine for a second that you were setting out to make a stop-motion piece, then ON TOP OF THAT you drew "Musical". That's what this memorable and almost-awesome film sets out to do.
Without ruining the film too much, Sidney Manson runs an automotive/machine shop with a large and loyal staff. But when the sun goes down, some tomfoolery is going on in the workplace, and Sid's gang are determined to find the culpret!
The songs in this include dinky/cute/fascinating choreographed lego-man dance numbers, and it really does some smart things that fit its ambitious double-genre. I wish this team had that wee bit more time; the opening songs were accapella and it seemed like a wee bit more time to polish would have made it just a bit moar awesome.
Disclosure: the film's director is also the "Dog's Breakfast" reviewer here. Props for that!

This movie was great. Obviously a lot of time, effort and patience was put into it, especially for only a 2 person team. Was funny and the story was told well. Would watch again

Syd is trying to find out who is violating her cars at night.
This short was a brilliant stop-motion animation using lego characters. Had cool songs which helped advance the plot and an awesome dance routine. The whole thing was very entertaining. Well done for getting the vertigo shot in, considering the limitations of stop-motion. Awesome use of yoghurt as stand in for jizz. Clearly the most professional short of the night.

This was a really nice stop-frame piece. I can tell a lot of work went into all the moving of the lego characters. I'm really impressed this was done with only a two-person crew. Unfortunately the script and voice work was a little rough and a lot of the intended jokes came off cheap and unintellegent. Still, a really good job and I think the filmmakers should be proud of what they've done.
