The Brickfilms Podcast was a podcast run by Cody "Pierre Films" Brooks, Jonathan Schlaepfer and James Morr in official association with Brickfilms.com and available on iTunes.[1] Its purpose was to introduce more people to brickfilms and Brickfilms.com,[2] to make selected films from the Brickfilms.com directory available for viewing on iPod[3] and to highlight brickfilms in a similar capacity to Brickfilm of the Week from years later. It was launched in January 2006 and ran on an irregular schedule until June 2007.[4]

History[]

The first installment was released on January 15, 2006[5] and the podcast was formally announced on Brickfilms.com by Cody Brooks the following day.[2] The stated primary purpose was to "spread brickfilms to the masses".[6]

Releases were accompanied by a short text description or comment on the film.[4] Each installment was released both on iTunes and from the podcast's own website, at first located at Podcast.Brickfilms.com and later at Brickfilmspodcast.com.[7] Installments usually consisted of the chosen film with the addition of the podcast's intro at the start and a selected comment on the podcast from iTunes at the end.

The podcast's release on iTunes allowed the films to reach a different audience than usual. Comments quoted were typically from people outside the brickfilming community and often previously unaware of brickfilms. The podcast received a large boost in publicity when it was featured on the front page of iTunes' podcast section in March 2006.[2]

Releases of the podcast did not stick to a tight schedule, with periods between releases ranging from days to months and only two installments being released in 2007.[4] There was a total of 22 installments. The final one was released on the 11th of June, 2007.
