The Nightly News at Nine – a brickfilm by David Pickett

We don’t feature enough videos from the talented community of brickfilmers, so I was happy to be introduced to a brickfilm project by David Pickett (fallentomato) at Brickworld called The Nightly News at Nine (NNN). NNN captures “the zany adventures of a TV News team who live in a fantastical world made of plastic bricks.” The first chapter was recently released on DVD, and David was kind enough to give me a copy to take a look.

Fortunately, all contents of the DVD except for the commentary can be viewed for free. Below is the 24 minute video of the first episode of NNN. If you enjoyed our post of David’s Anti-Green Commercial, you’ll appreciate the same quality of animation, humor, and voice acting that went into this video. My only complaint is the lack of facial animations on the minifigs, but the variety of their motions and gestures does well to compensate.

You can learn more about the production of the video or watch the other features of the DVD. If you want to purchase the DVD for $8 and show your support for the series, you can do so here. Meanwhile, here’s a trailer for the next episode, and I look forward to seeing it!

    Glad to see this posted — it’s been in my queue for a while but I haven’t been able to get to it. (Apologies, David, if you’re reading this.)
