Welcome to Brickfilm of the Week! This is a new weekly feature on Bricks in Motion. Every Friday, a brickfilm will be selected as Brickfilm of the Week to be featured on the main page of Bricks in Motion. The purpose of Brickfilm of the Week is to celebrate important, fun, influential, creative and noteworthy brickfilms and to draw attention to brickfilms that might have been forgotten over the years.
Since it’s THAC (Twenty-four Hour Animation Contest) season, this week’s Brickfilm of the Week is His Master’s Plan, by Stefan van Zwam, the winner of the very first Twenty-four Animation Contest in 2005.
His Master’s Plan follows the story of a servant, following the orders of his master, who breaks into a house to steal something valuable. Like all THAC films, it was made in under 24 hours. Stefan van Zwam, a Dutch brickfilmer, was a staple member of the Brickfilms.com community and was active from 2001 to 2007, producing brickfilms such as Animation Class: Lesson 1, Daedalus and Icarus, and his Great Inventors pair of films. His Master’s Plan was one of Stefan van Zwam’s last brickfilms.
