This week’s Brickfilm of the Week is The Gauntlet by Jay Silver.
The Gauntlet follows the story of an imprisoned man who attempts to escape the lair of an evil wizard. It was made in 2001 and was originally conceived to be an entry into the Classical Movie Contest on Brickfilms.com, but it was not finished in time. Jay Silver, a Canadian brickfilmer, has been a staple member of the brickfilming community since 2001, and is appearing in the Bricks in Motion documentary. The Gauntlet was Jay Silver’s first released brickfilm, and he also made Rise of the Empire, Rapunzel, and The Journey, which recently won the Bricks in Motion Celebration Contest.
