    I love making stop motion movies, and I like it even better with legos. but I always get stuck on one thing: the story.
    I’m creative as heck, don’t get me wrong, but I’ll come up with story ideas and 2 minutes later they’ll have a big REJECTED on them. It would be great to get advice from the more experienced animators. I want to be animating right now, but i don’t have a story. Thanks to whoever comments.

    P.S. I already checked the tutorial on the site. Thanks! :wink

    Try to get inspiration from somewhere. Watch movies, read books and free your imagination :)

    Yeah, basing it off of something may seem like copying, but it helps even if you use 2 seconds of “copying”

    Check out the whole range of videos here http://brickfilms.com/category/films/ and you may be able to produce one on your own.

    One thing you have to think about is which type of legos you have… If you’ve collected Star Wars, Harry Potter, LoTR, or just plain legos then this will put you in the direction of which type of video you want to make. I love Zombie and Action movies so these will be a big part of the videos I will create. You can also get inspiration from YouTube videos… Take a look at some funny short videos and try to copy them in Lego, you could make them just as funny with lego people. Try to start small and redu part of movie you love; I’m also a big fan of Monty Python movies and would love to do some outtakes of the Holy Grail. Above all, start small so you don’t get overwhelmed. It is easy to have this huge project in mind and then get bogged down with the cost of legos, the amount of time it will take to product each photo or video and then you end up stopping before it ever gets finished!
    Remember, you can’t elephant in one bite, it takes many, many small bites but it can be done! Just my two cents.

    Wew.. You just said that is all in my mind Joseph. Why don’t try something new? Like a story of your life film or story of others..
