“The whole way through there is excellent imagery to support the text and methodology behind how to create and produce your very own brickfilm. It is great if you are starting from scratch for the very first time, although that’s not to say that a seasoned pro wouldn’t learn a thing or two from these guys.”
“Creating a Brickfilm can seem like a tricky affair, but the book's authors make it really easy to get started. We look forward to seeing what’s next from No Starch Press, not to mention all these great new Brickfilms born out of this great book.”
—The Bricks Fans
