Lego Stop motion is a fun way to interpret the world though the eyes of an imaginative person using Lego bricks. Lego bricks are one of the most classic, fun, and clever toys ever made. Advances in consumer electronics, such as affordable computers, camcorders and digital cameras have made it possible for you to produce high quality LEGO animations inexpensively.
Take a look at a quick snippet of a scene we made for Miles and the Moon Cave so you can see what Lego stop motion is all about.
Make sure you have all the pieces needed.
There’s no point to start your journey of creating a way cool scene without the right bricks. Take a look at some sites below where you can grab some much needed Legos on the inexpensive side.
Build and set your scene up
This scene does not need to be all Lego blocks. You can get creative and use clay or real life elements. Just make sure to use Lego floor plates so your mini characters have a place to walk as well as other building you want to lock down.
Grab your minifigure
Take stock of all your minifigures and make sure you have all types of different figures so you can create the exact scene you need. As the stock minifigure heads are very static you want to have a few suitable heads ready to go if you’d like for your actors to be expressive. If you can’t find heads that work you could always paint some yourself.
