    Check out this amazing space-race brick film. Using minifigures and builds from across the galaxy together in fun and exciting ways, LEGO® Star Wars™ fan Forrest Whaley has made his adventure real!


    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.


    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.


    One really cool way to add depth, light and movement into your Brick Film is to use a projection in the background. In this video, Forrest Whaley teaches you about a rear screen projection and how he uses animation and a projector to make his backgrounds move. You can do this in your own home by using a computer, TV or tablet screen in the background!
