If you are a brickfilmer, knowledge is one of those things you can never have enough of.. That’s why I am here! Even though I barely do much brickfilming, I recently got done with a HUGE project called “Lego Movie: the untold story” And It is one of my favorite videos that I have made. ( You can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeHcBUCAUhc )

In the video we see a human get transported to the Lego universe, next to talking, living, breathing lego minifigs in a giant Lego city that spans far as the eye can see..

In this project I worked with A LOT of post production and special effects.. There was the greenscreen footage, the stop motion, the animation on the lego character’s faces, and a giant digital city.

So I made a Behind the scenes video! Which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnnpzNnHm7k

In that video I go over all the aspects from beginning to end of the film making process, On how I made the digital city, on the animation for the lego characters faces, and other awesome aspects of this 15 minute long brickfilm. Even if you don’t watch my original lego video, it will be worth watching just the behind the scenes, as I go over things that EVERY brickfilmer needs to know. I hope that the BTS video can help you and educate you!

If you have any questions for me about cameras, programs, techniques, animation, greenscreen, ect. ASK ME! you can ask me questions either here, OR on my youtube video’s comment section.

I want to help the brickfilming community. And I hope to see some of my techniques come into practice and make other brickfilms out there look just as great or better than my film did! Thanks for checking this out!

I’ll have to admit, when I first read your post, I was thinking, “here’s another kid over-selling his youtube video”. Boy was I wrong. I was very impressed, not just with your technical skill and fun story, but with the ridiculous ambition and follow-through. It takes more than an idea to make something like this a reality. You’ve obviously invested a lot of time learning your tools and experimenting with techniques and production. It was truly a pleasure to watch. Keep it up. I hope to see more from you in the future.
