Bill Carney's Body is an award-winning 2008 drama brickfilm by Nikolas Jaeger.[1] The story follows three men in a Chicago speakeasy as they discuss the murder of former patron Bill Carney.[2] The film was considered lost for several years when Nikolas Jaeger deleted nearly all of his films from his YouTube channel, but in 2014 a copy was found on one of Chris Boyer's hard drives and Bill Carney's Body was added to the Brickfilms Archive shortly after.[3]

Plot Edit

In a dark bar, a stranger orders a scotch. A nearby kid begins talking about the recent murder of Bill Carney. The bartender and the kid engage in conversation, discussing how Bill used drink at the bar (sitting exactly where the stranger is sitting now), and wondering how exactly Bill was killed. They debate whether Bill was shot in the stomach or head, before the stranger gets up suddenly to leave. Before departing, the stranger explains Bill was shot both in the stomach and the head, leaving the bartender and the kid in shock.[2]
