LEGO Harry Potter: How to Kill a Dementor

The BrotherhoodWorkshop recently released a fun LEGO Harry Potter stop-motion video, titled LEGO Harry Potter: How to Kill a Dementor. It comes with some interesting twists and surprises. Then in another video Kevin Ulrich will take us behind-the-scenes to see how the film was created, blending LEGO stop-motion and live action movements.

LEGO Harry Potter Stop Motion

Dementors feed on the happiness of others. So what happens when they find a creature with limitless happiness? Can you guess who that is? Watch the video below to find out! 🙂

That was cute, isn’t it? Now let’s take a look at some of the techniques used to make the film. I really like Kevin’s behind-the-scenes videos, and this is one of my favorites. His ideas for creating realistic movement in LEGO stop-motion films are really clever. Here you will learn how to incorporate live action movement into a LEGO stop-motion film. In the video he also mentions another recent short film that he created for the popular How It Should Have Ended (HISHE) channel relating to The LEGO Movie. You can watch it directly on YouTube here.

    The cool part was when he used the water to create a floating affect, I would have never thought of that! I’d try stop motion but things with computers, eh, not my strong suit. 😀

      Water is difficult in stop motion. I think Aardman Animation used some mixture that looked like water but in practice was more like jelly…

    I saw Unikitty coming there. I was thinking, what is the most optimistic thing in the entire cosmos? I know, Unikitty! XD

        When I first saw the picture, I thought it was Lockhart. He’s pretty enthusiastic, but then he’s also pretty dumb. 🙂
