Brickfilm of the Week: Cognizance

Brickfilm of the Week Apr 17, 2015

This week’s Brickfilm of the Week is Cognizance by Michael J. Green.

Cognizance is a music video set to the Coldplay song “Don’t  Panic” and tells the story of an assassin who is reassessing his career  and life choices. Unlike some music videos in the future, this music  video is purely a fan creation, and not sponsored by Coldplay. It was  made in 2005 by Michael J. Green for his high school senior project,  where it was chosen was one of the top three projects. Cognizance was also nominated for four awards in the 2005 Brickfilms Achievement in Motion Pictures Awards (a  precursor to the Bricks in Motion Awards), including Best Overall Film.  Michael J. Green, typically known as Cometgreen, was a well-known  member of and was also a notable moderator. He made a few  other films, including returning in 2011 to release another music video  (LCD Soundsystem - All My Friends), but Cognizance is his most-known brickfilm by far.
