LEGO The Hobbit in 72 Seconds – video

Today let’s look at another awesome LEGO stop-motion video from the BrotherhoodWorkshop, and also an excellent behind-the-scenes tutorial on how some of the effect in the video were made. For budding LEGO animators these tutorials are full of invaluable information to develop their own skills. So let’s watch the video first, then learn from the techniques! 🙂

LEGO Stop Motion Video The Hobbit

This LEGO stop-motion video is titled “The Hobbit in 72 seconds” with the sub-title “33,000-ish Seconds Shorter Than Peter Jackson’s Version” – Which is in response to people who complain that The Hobbit movies are too long and stretched out. Many of the BrotherhoodWorkshop’s videos cover funny and witty interpretation from scenes from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies, and this one is no exception.

So that’s The Hobbit for you in not even a minute and half, but you can see that there is a lot going on in these LEGO stop-motion scenes. In the video below Kevin will share how the extensive scenes were done as a green-screen composite with tremendous amount of work and patience.

So what do you think? How did you like the LEGO The Hobbit video? Are you planning to see the last movie coming to theatres soon? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! And you can also browse the current selection of LEGO The Hobbit sets at the Online LEGO Shop.

      The new Bionicle sets have a release date of January 2015, but the Visorak were from the original Bionicle sets (called Gen1 Bionicle by fans) and dated back to 2005. The new spider set of Gen2 Bionicle (Lord of the Skull Spiders) is different from the Visorak as they come from two radically different storylines…

      If you are purchasing LEGO off the web, I recommend http://www.bricklink.com, which is a LEGO only site and you can be sure of getting real LEGO and not fakes etc with your purchase…

      According to the Bionicle storyline, the Toa, Matoran, and Turaga (and any other Bionicle being — besides the Brotherhood of Makuta) were half-mechanical half-organic, thus comes biological chronicle (Bionicle). They were created by fully organic beings they called the Great Beings (sorta like us humans making Bionicle sets)and were housed in a gigantic robot (where most of the Gen1 Bionicle story took place).

      Hope this answers your questions… I am a bit of a Bionicle nerd so I can tend to ramble on sometimes… 🙂

    Yes, this is so accurate. Best Hobbit movie ever! 😀 I especially like the end part, with the people who weren’t in the book. Although he missed two people there: Galadriel and the Witch King. They’re not in the book either, but I suppose Brotherhood Workshop could be excused for not having the sets. 😕 I can’t even think about 16 layers in one scene, though, considering all my films have one. I really need video-making software. 😐

    He is undeniably the Lego stopmotion king. I wonder if he will ever get a job working on a Laika, or some other company’s, claymation film. (I say Laika because Coraline, Paranorman, and the Box trolls.)
