The BrotherhoodWorkshop just released another fun LEGO Lord of the Rings stop-motion video, this time addressing the question many Lord of the Rings fans have wondered about: “Why didn’t the Fellowship use the eagles to fly into Mordor?” Then we will look at another video where Kevin Ulrich takes us behind-the-scenes and shares how the video was created. 🙂
Walking into Mordor was a treacherous journey the Fellowship of the Ring had to take – especially for Frodo and Sam who had to walk all the way in. Once they completed their mission a couple of eagles were able to bring the exhausted Hobbits back to safety with no problems. So that makes you wonder; why didn’t they use the eagles in the first place? But as you will see in the video below, eagles can’t solve everything…
Fun, isn’t it? Poor eagles! In the next video you will see how this stop-motion film was created, using some really interesting techniques to give the illusion of flying, depth, and action, as well as manipulating the size of different objects in the scene. Also, note the incorporation of the huge LEGO Barad-dûr built by LEGO fan Kevin Walter.
Here is a picture of the aforementioned LEGO Barad-dûr, with Kevin Walter standing next to it for size-comparison. You can see a lot more pictures in Kevin’s flickr gallery, just click on the link to take you there.
So what do you think? How did you like the LEGO Lord of the Rings: Walk Into Mordor video? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! And in case you are getting inspired to build something (maybe not as big as the LEGO Barad-dûr above, but still something awesome) you can also browse the current selection of LEGO Lord of the Rings sets at the Online LEGO Shop.
