About this creation
Hi guys, It's me, with my first How to MOC. This is going to show you how to make a brickfilm which in my opinion lets you show your story better than regular MOC format. The basic thing is that it lets you animate by taking pictures and moving the pieces slightly, then playing them fast and fooling your eye. A tripod for your camera works better, but if not, it's ok. Just put it on the ground or something or whatever. I will post a video form later, but for now here is this.

OK, the first thing you're going to do is enter into Microsoft Movie Maker. It comes automatically in Windows 2010, but if you don't have it, you can download it for free here .

Now you are going to click 'Add Photos and Videos' in the top left corner.

Click on your first picture (or click the first, and Shift + Click the last one) and click 'Open'.

Your picture should appear on the screen.

Do the same process with the next photo and so on.

Now to the contextual tab "Video Tools" and then click duration. Make it whatever you want. I make all of mine .08 (8/100) of a second. You have to make each picture very very slight movement. It takes a very long time but it is very worth it! This takes a while to get used to. I'm still getting the hang of it, my first videos weren't to good but I'm getting way better. If you have any questions then please comment.

Wish I had windows 7 when I first started out! In the od one you had to make all the pics smaller by dragging them!
