I have made a film with lego about 3 years ago. today I was browsing my PC, when I found it again. I post a link, it is on the web. this is one of my favourites. what is your opinion about it?

LOL

I actually thought this was fun; like pre pre-vis today. Like animatics almost. One day you'll be on location with a castle and horses and this will come back to you. Great blocking excercises!

Hudson is right, it looks like some cheesy animatics. Lot of fun though.

As much as legos holds a nostalgic feel for me, I wasn't digging this so much.

I think it needs more. Maybe some cheesy dialog instead of the same music over and over for 5 minutes.

Other than that, good job on the stop motion.

Good stuff. you should do a re-shoot with the DVX and better backgrounds. Excuse me, not a re-shoot, a sequel!

Cool. Always been a fan of legos. Just have to say the first part of the short was much weaker than the end. The animation and camera seemed more controlled in the latter part of the short. The movements also more fluid and precise. Good job though. Looking forward to seeing another.

Hey Surf.... how does 1.7 million robotic lego pieces sound? heh....I'm a cosponsor of the Lego's Robotics Group here at the college. We offer Summer weeklong workshops for kids, parents, teachers, etc.. Check out this past summer's group...

http://www.teamdeltaclub.com/LegoMain.htm

I did a documentary a few weeks ago involving Lego Racing using a cool-ass 40 ft long aluminum race track. The kids went nuts building their own cars and racing them. Of course we were concentrating on the science and engineering behind it all, encouraging them to increase or decrease weight, length, etc... They catch on quickly.

I'm so ignorant to stop motion. How the hell do you do that while going handheld? I always thought you'd have to lock the shots off so you could match it exactly to the next? I loved when the characters became animated. Good work man.

it sounds very good. although it needs a lot of time. (and now I do not have too much). this 3 min short took 4-5 hours to do.

I was not proposing anything to you, simply chatting about our LEGO efforts locally.

Thanks,

See THAT looks like stop motion to me (Slinks post). Funny as hell, but you see the camera jiggle everytime an adjustment is made. I didn't really notice that with the legos. The handheld looks so smooth! I don't get it, can anyone explain?
