    Hi everyone, I have no idea what material to use when it comes to water for my LEGO film. I tried making water in Blender as CGI but that proved to be too difficult, especially since I needed a boat traveling through the water with ripples/foam/spray and reflections. All I need is an ocean, but I also need speedboats to travel on the water also. So what should I use for water?

    I would use blue clay. easy for molding into waves and it is easy for having legos stick to it. but if you already recorded it, i guess you should try re-animating it, with the blue and white clay.

    Blue lego pieces ^^
    As long as you handle them the right way and film them correctly it actually looks really neat. Especially on waves and tides.

    Very good suggestion guys. I agree with blue lego pieces.

    Josh, were you able to use any of the ideas laid here for your ocean? We would love to hear how it worked out for you.

    I ended up using plastic wrap over blue paper. It turned out to be a good effect. It is also used in this animation–it’s where i got the idea:
