        How to Get Started on Your First Brick Film

        It can be hard to know where to start when making your first stop motion Brick Film. In this video, Forrest Whaley talks about the importance of an animatic – or a sketch of what he is planning for his Brick Film. The first thing you want to do is decide on the story you want to tell. Then, you can make quick sketches of each scene you want to have in your film. Don’t forget to add in transition shots showing how you get from one shot to another. Watch this video to see how Forrest makes his animatics.

          It may sound funny, but SNOT is no joke. It stands for ‘Studs Not On Top’ and it’s a great way of building with LEGO® bricks! Building the SNOT way means angling your bricks in a way that brings landscapes to life. Check out this video where David Hall takes you through how he used SNOT to build his Brickorama, and for examples of how you can do it yourself!

              Brick BIG

              Creating a LEGO® diorama, or Brickorama, is a great way to show off your building skills while also telling a story captured in time. Brickoramas can be small or BIG like this Brickorama by David Hall. In his build, he’s telling the story of The Bad Batch™ being hunted down by Imperial Troops in the forests of Daro™. Desperate to find cover, the gang reaches a hillside where they meet Crosshair™ alongside a pack of Stormtroopers™. In the skies, a fierce battle between good and evil is taking place. Watch his how-to videos to get some info about how to create your own Brickorama and tell your story.

                How to Make a Minifigure Walk

                Want to learn how to make your Stormtroopers™ march? In this video, Forrest Whaley demonstrates the process of creating a minifigure walk in stop motion animation. It can help to watch how people walk to get the movements down. When you put one leg forward, swing the opposite arm of the minifigure forwards. With each movement, shift the torso just a little bit to make it look a little more realistic. Then, once you’ve created this small walking loop, you can repeat it! Check out the video for a full tutorial.

                          Bring your still life to life

                          It’s time for a little Grogu™ still life practice! Grab your minifigure and follow along as Casper teaches you how to make your minifigure drawing float. The first step is creating a base sketch out of pencil so you can make changes to the face and body shape until you get it just how you want it. Then, go over all the lines, including the details, with a thin marker. Next, go back around the outside of the drawing with a thicker marker. This will give your minifigure some weight on the page. When it comes to color, try using different hues of the same color to create depth and show off the details. And now for the final step – making it float! Use a soft color under the minifigure to shade in a little spot that kind of mimics the shape of your minifigure. Think about what your shadow would look like if you were floating!

                                                                          Try your skills at drawing a speedy scene from The Bad Batch™ featuring Hunter™. Get a good look at your hoverbike and minifigure, then start drawing! First you will want to draw everything down in pencil. Pay attention to any details. For this base layer it’s OK to make mistakes! Also, fill in the surrounding page with things like motion lines and dust to make it look like your bike is speeding! Next, outline everything in a thin black marker and then the outer-most line with a thicker black marker. When it comes to color, be sure to use different hues to build shadows and highlights in your drawing. It’s those details that really bring it to life. To make your bike hover, add a hoverbike-shaped shadow below your drawing. The darker the shadow, the lower it looks to the ground. Finally, push those highlights with a white paint pen or colored pencil.
