What an enjoyable and funny short. Everyone who owns a pet can relate to the fear of their pet destroying a beloved toy like we see in A LEGO's Luck!

This is an animated student short film about a LEGO figure trying to escape from the family dog.

This is a blend of live action and animation, with the LEGO character being animated and the dog live action. The storyline is very creative and the use of things like the moving tennis ball adds interest. I also appreciate the different expressions on the LEGO figure's face - very clever. One thing that stands out is the use of various camera angles showing changes on the LEGO figure's face and the dogs. Some shots are sharper than others, but it's certainly watchable. The location and scenes work well. I love the paper airplane carrying LEGO man around the room. That was completely unexpected. The background music fits the action of the film perfectly. The music added to the drama and portrays the emotions of all the characters. The dog is to be commended for his "acting" in the film. His facial expressions are perfect for his role. LEGO man gives us a sense of his potential threat by the dog while he protects his LEGO station from the dog and dog's ball. My hats off to Oscar McDermott-Sipe who is the director, animator and producer of the film. His sense of humor comes across throughout. My favorite scenes are the LEGI figure removing the dog's tennis ball from the Lego station and the paper airplane ride at the conclusion.

The message of this film is that play, as well as perseverance, matters.

I give LEGO's Luck 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4 to 18, plus adults. This is an exceptional student animated short that deserves all the attention you can give it. By Selene W. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST!
