Ah, French; the language of poets and lovers… but what does that have to do with LEGO? Well, today I would like to share with you a fun, witty and highly enjoyable LEGO stop-motion video following the adventures (mainly getting in trouble) of two friends; Henri and Edmond. The video has been produced by Maxime Marion, with French voice-actors Hervé Bonafos, Jean-Marie Pexoto, Fabien Floris and Lilian Ginet. I think you will like it. 🙂
Henri & Edmond won the Bricksinmotion Awards for Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Performance (Jean-Marie Pexoto), Best Original Score, and Best Film. Although this LEGO video is in French, English subtitles are included, so you can both enjoy the movie and hear some lovely French. So sit back, grab your popcorn, and relish half an hour of LEGO stop-motion goodness!
Wasn’t that awesome? And fun? If you would like to learn about how this LEGO video was made you can check out the storyboard here: LEGO Video: Henri & Edmond – Storyboard.
There is also a great behind-the-scene featurette showing the team working on the LEGO stop-motion scenes and voice-animation. You can check it out here: LEGO Video: Henri & Edmond – Behind the Scene.
So what do you think? How did you like the story of Henri and Edmond? And what do you think of the LEGO stop-motion video effects and details? What did you like? What you didn’t like? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉
