Love in Black & White – a LEGO mime story

Today I thought to share with you another one of my favorite LEGO stop-motion films. This one was actually posted about a year ago on YouTube and it’s not well known, but it is really sweet. Enjoy! 🙂

LEGO Mime Stop-Motion Video by Walter Benson

This LEGO stop-motion video was created by Walter Benson and is titled “Love in Black and White”. It follows a mime on his search for love. Finding that special someone can be hard enough already, not to speak of for a mime who can’t speak! Watch the story unfold below…

Awww… I should have told you, you will need a hanky! It was sweet, isn’t it? I like this film not just because of the excellent stop-motion animation, but also for its simplicity. More is not always better to create a memorable film. Here the set-up is very simple with just a small park, a couple of main characters, a few supporting minifigs, and a bit of background music. And it is all in black and white! Which make the film more mime-ish, and also puts the focus on the characters, and highlights the timelessness of the story told. An artist with magical hands and keen eyes can bring to life even simple objects like plastic toys. Amazing, isn’t it?

Wow! 😀 This is really an awesome stop-motion video. Still don’t know why it didn’t get popular in youtube. It is just so well-made! Don’t you agree more? 😆

When you said “Do you like the LEGO mine minifigure?” did you mean MIME?

Yeah, I would also love to do it, but just don’t have the money right now.

This post feels oddly familiar…Has this ever been posted before?

Hm… no… maybe in an alternate Universe? In this Universe I wrote it a few days ago… to my limited knowledge and perception… 🙄

Weird. I could have sworn I saw it once on this site will trawling backwards for articles. Maybe I was confusing sites.

No, it definitely wasn’t here. Probably you read about it on another website. The video has been up for quite some time now, so I’m fairly sure someone would have blogged it before.
