By the Sad Sea Waves is a 2019 dramatic brickfilm by Garry Moore and Gregory Moore.[1] It follows a sailor onboard a ship infested with zombies.[2] The film was entered into Brickfilm Rapidly All Week Long Contest 2019, winning first place.[3]


In a ship, a sailor looks through a telescope while zombies bang on a nearby door. He sets down the telescope and picks up a pistol and a cutlass. The sailor climbs out of the window and jumps to another. He climbs through and walks past moaning zombies. The sailor leaves the ship's hold and locks the door. Hiding behind the door, he removes a glove revealing a zombified hand. The sailor walks to the edge of the ship, picks up a cannon-ball and jumps overboard.
