It’s amazing to see what creative people can do with music, movies, LEGOs, and a LOT of discretionary time. If you want proof, check out some of the LEGO stopmotion videos included in Mashable’s posts “Top 10 LEGO Movie Tributes on YouTube” and “10 Best LEGO Music Videos on YouTube.” The past two summers I’ve led week long stopmotion moviemaking camps for kids, and those experiences have given me a BIG appreciation for just how much time a good stopmotion scene takes to create. The first sequence below took 440 hours to make, or 18 days! That’s a lot of time. Here are some of my favs from these two posts.
H/T to Yoon Soo Lim for sharing the Best LEGO Music Videos post. I found the LEGO Movie Tributes post after installing and using the Mashable iPhone application today waiting an hour in line for corn dogs at Frontier City. 🙂
