For a recent class-project at Staffordshire University in the UK, students have created several computer-graphic LEGO films. They are really amazing so I thought to share them with you here. Enjoy!
The academic team project to create the LEGO films, spanned 12 weeks, representing approx 1000 hours work, or approx 120-160 hours per person, and one quarter of the student’s final semester workload.
The first LEGO film is based on the exciting science-fiction movie Inception. Students working on the project exhibited fantastic team work, great technical solutions and professional approach throughout. This LEGO film is the work of Visual Effects and Concept Design students; Pedrom Dadgostar, Hollie Price, Jack Milton, Simon Stirrup, Sam Serridge, Jack Bosworth, and Sidney Thibault.
The second LEGO film recreates scenes from the action-film based on the history of Sparta called 300. It’s a visually beautiful LEGO film that remains true to the effects of the original movie. This LEGO film was the work of Jason Bridnley, Adam Cini, Lisa Fearns, Wesley Diggory, Dale Ditchburn, and Harwen Singh, with some supporting animation for the cliff-scene by Animation student, Ryan Shaw.
The third LEGO film created by the students is based on the science-fiction action comedy film Men in Black (MIB). The students involved with creating this LEGO film were Ben Nixon, Dean Goodwin, Hannah Waring, Richard Hulme, Tom Simpson, Daniel Byrne and Nathan Parish. They did an excellent job as well.
