    I owe a lot to this community and I'm happy to say that we finally finished our RED-shot feature comedy Brick MADNESS. It's about a National LEGO Buiding Tournament called Britcakthon. It's a mockumentary.

    We started with the RED One, did the majority on Epics (both MX and Dragon sensor) a Scarlet, and even were forced to mix in a Canon 7D. Here's the trailer:

    On Wednesday, we'll be talking about the making of the movie on our ZoomCast "Crew Talk." We have a lot to share about all the things we did right and wrong for it to take 11 years. We'll also be giving away a $50 B&H gift certificate and some fun movie stuff. Sign up for that here:

    Please take a look. Thank you. Also, please ask any questions about why this took so long. I'd be happy to help people not make the same mistakes I did.

    Let me guess, IP concerns with one of the larger "brick" manufacturers made distributors shy away.

    Ha! Very possibly. That and not having enough name talent. It's hard to say really. The guy who built most of the LEGO for us in the movie actually works as a designer at The LEGO Group so you'd think that would help!

    Hey Justin, the trailer and show look *great*. Congrats, I can see there's *so much work here*.

    A million congrats. It looks super, super fun.

    The characters look *fantastic*.

    Best of luck to you and your team.
