Brick Lives!


I refuse to comment on how long this took to make, especially for how short it is. But, with Ginger and the kids in Richmond for this past week during the kid's spring break I felt like I had to keep with the tradition (although now that I think about it, I don't even know if the kids realize this is a tradition or if they even look forward to this type of stuff anymore). If nothing else I expect to get lots of "How did you do that?" questions from the kids. It was created using POV Ray and using their animation features. I had played around with POV Ray years ago, but I completely forgot how to use it so I basically had to learn it all over again. I cheated and used a real image in the background, so the whole scene isn't raytraced. After that it was just a matter of creating all individual animation sequences and combining the ~600 resulting images into an AVI file.

I enjoy that I have NO IDEA what is going to happen when I watch one of your brick videos. Always leaves me with a smile...and an odd sense of "creepy".
