Here’s a film I made for Bricks in Motion’s “The Citizen of the Year LIVES” contest. I made the film in September, couldn’t release it until November 1st. I keep forgetting that I have a blog around here, so this post is a bit late, but not too terribly late, I suppose.
I also made this for the secondary TCOTY Lives contest, which was an art contest:
I made this film for Bricks in Motion’s contest Darkness & Light. I won’t give much away about the plot so that you will watch it, but I can tell you that I had a lot of fun working on this classic space inspired movie. Hear that? Classic space! Yeah, you know you’re a sucker for classic space! Oh, you’re not reading this anymore, you watching it? That’s fine with me! 😉
UPDATE: I came in first place in Darkness & Light! Thank you all for your support and for enjoying the video! 🙂
On July 18th, an annual week-long LEGO animation contest started on BricksInMotion.com. It is called BRAWL 2015 (Brickfilm Rapidly All Week Long), and contestants are to, like it’s name implies, make a brickfilm in one week. I entered said contest, and produced the following video:
This film is based on a series of films I began in BRAWL 2014. This series follows Captain D. Rom, a very goofy cop with a sidekick named Laura (who seems to end up being the unnoticed real hero). You can watch the other two Captain D. Rom films here:
There’s nothing better than a good love story to warm your heart…
In this film, everything (sound effects, animation, etc), except for the music, was created by me.
Captain D. Rom is the best cop around. Sometimes he is a little too good. While looking for new police officers, he looses control and launches into interigation mode in the comedic police brickfilm.
MADE IN (under) 24 HOURS! Yep, that’s right. I started at 7:00 am on January 3, 2015, and am ending when this finished uploading at about 5:00 am on the 4th. Made for a contest on BricksInMotion.com called THAC XII (That’s “Twenty-four Hour Animation Contest 12).
The happy tale of two dogs who have fun in the snow.
As you can tell in the video, I used powder for the snow. What kind of powder you ask? Baking Soda. I used Baking Soda instead of sugar or flour, because sugar tends to be sticky (especially when it soaks up the humidity from the air), and flour can be a pain to clean up (because when you mix flour and water, you get dough!).
Howdy everybody! Seven years ago, on December 10th 2007, I sat down in my living room floor, grabbed my Dad’s camera and some LEGO bricks, and started making a movie. Little did I know then that I would still me doing that today. Ok, not exactly that. I don’t sit in the floor anymore, I have my own camera now, I actually write scripts and build more elaborate sets, and have proper lighting. As you can see, a lot has changed in seven years. In fact, if you’d like to see just how much has changed, be my guest. My very first stop-motion animation was based on the LEGO Nativity Story from Luke 2.

Some Toa just don’t know their own size. Poor Lewa Nuva just wanted to rest his feet for a while…
