Lego Movies
    Lego is a trademark of The Lego Group. This is not an official Lego page.
To the aspiring stop-motion animator, Legos are a godsend. They're simple to animate, and cheap (at least compared to actually building props and sets in real life). There's tons of different costumes and props available, and a very active trading community on the net.

Here are my efforts so far. They're all very short. I'm really just getting started, and have a lot to learn.

StopMoTest

This is my first attempt, starring a Joe Minifig and a skeleton in a barrel. No sound. One special effect added in Premiere.

  • 20 seconds
  • JVC Camcorder, captured through GeForce3
  • Stop Motion Pro 3
  • Adobe Premiere

 

Swordfight

First try at adding sound and getting it synched with the action.

  • 9 seconds
  • JVC Camcorder, captured through GeForce3
  • Stop Motion Pro 3
  • Adobe Premiere

 

Animator

An idea that just jumped into my head, as well as an exercise to improve my timing.

  • 14 seconds
  • Intel Pocket PC Camera
  • Stop Motion Pro 3.5
  • Adobe Premiere

Dino

Did this with my brother's Lego Studios. Yuck! Show this to anyone who is thinking of buying studios - the quality just doesn't compare to the other stuff.
