Hi guys! So Iv’e been doing Lego stop-motions for over a year now, but I feel like they are all lacking……something. I’m not sure what it is, but something is not right, and I’m not content with my videos. Do you guys have any tips of what makes a Lego stop motion so great? I have a pretty good camera that takes clear, nice pictures, and I believe my animation is pretty decent too. I think I may be lacking in the sound/audio effects department, however don’t restrict your tips to just one category.
Thanks!March 25, 2014 at 5:16 pm #440341

Great video! I really enjoyed it. Animation is pretty good, I think that you could some more sound effects. Here is a link to a website where you sound effects. http://soundfxnow.com/
I hope that this helps! 😀March 25, 2014 at 9:08 pm #440350March 25, 2014 at 9:24 pm #440351
My tips would be 2 things. 1- do you have a clicker for your camera? If not I would get one. Itll help it look smoother. 2- get a couple of lamps to try and even out the lighting. I know lighting is easier said than done but i think if you video just looks slightly better youll be a lot happier with it.March 25, 2014 at 9:38 pm #440352March 25, 2014 at 9:56 pm #440353

For your consideration;
Bricks in the background that ain’t supposed to move, do. This can be undone by building the set sturdier. 😉
To better counter the camera bobbing, you may try to build a camera housing of cardboard or Lego, or use a mini tripod. Those are relatively cheap. Tape or tac it to the ground.
Also I use the delay option, with two seconds delay the bumping of the camera that happens when I press the capture button is all but nullified.
Experiment and don’t be buggered if stuff don’t work out. Because now you know it don’t and you learned something.
Hope its good advice, now go have some fun
