[A completely unscripted animation, considering I always wanted to contribute some sort of Animation for Newgrounds, so I tried my luck with a new skill, Stop-Motion animation! Comprised with my childhood toys from the garage called LEGO]

A mysterious Minifig wakes up in an unknown confinement as prisoner, filled with ruthless gangsters within an abandoned complex. You will soon find out the shocking truth as you progress through-out this new series.

I thought this was nicely done. I love how the song stopped with the crash of the plates. Good animation and good suspense. I'm glad you could make use of my beat... Maybe think about adding dialogue.

The animation was so fluid it had me smiling.
Nice sound FX.
Great use of characters.
Good music.

It was lacking in some bits of the story, likely because it was unscripted, some of the scenes seemed repetetive and generic.
Little gaps/time that felt like filler or accidental extension.

The whole thing was nicely done, I love to see stop-motion done right and this does it for me.
I never thought you could be such a good animator.
And thanks for the perfect music goes to Chronamut, it fit with every scene.

awesome animation dude - really suspenseful! Thanks for using my music!

No no, thank you for letting me use your music! :P

Amazing, the fact that this is rated so low is a travesty. The animation was choppy in a few places, but was very smooth and fluent in most of the time, especially in the second act there the animation was extremely fluid and smooth. The sounds were spot on and had good quality and the voice acting was fantastic. The story so far is intriguing and captivating, although it could use more details (we do not even know any names at this point) and look forward to the details unfolding. Scenery was well build. I enjoyed how you have a high level of interaction with the environment and how you did not skimp on any of the scenes with action, making sure to capture plenty of frames.

I look forward to the next installment.

Shawn, your review warmed my heart to the fullest, Hopefully the 2nd part will be more enjoyable for viewers, considering the plot thickens heavily.

This is pretty good stop motion work for a first submission. Pretty lengthy as well. It would be interesting to see you incorporate changing facial features and some lip syncing to give your characters more emotion.
Keep up the good work.
