I have to say, its all right. I am a Lego film maker myself, and i would really consider keeping hands and the transparent rods out of the film. Try to keep it just to the stop-animation. I will be putting my videos on MOC Pages, so check on my page every now and again if you want. Plus I will be posting my tips to making Films on my page too.
So you made all this before the sets came out?
that's pretty neat!
the animation was awesome except for a few frames with your fingers in them.
apart from that keep up the good work fellow Aussie!
