There are a couple of very funny LEGO The Hobbit stop-motion videos that were released by the BrotherhoodWorkshop within the past month that I haven’t posted yet, so I will include them here in one playlist, along with a behind-the-scenes look at how the videos were made. 🙂
First let’s look at the videos themselves. They are all in one play-list, so you can watch them one after another. The first one is titled LEGO The Hobbit: Azog’s Battle Plan. This is actually my favorite of the three videos as the conversation between the orcs is really cute. The second video is titled LEGO The Hobbit: Why Saruman Went Bad. The filming of this video is particularly nice, and the techniques used will be explained in the tutorial below. The third video is titled LEGO The Hobbit: Conversation with Smaug. So much gold! This video is short and witty, and will also be used as an example in the tutorial.
And now take a look at the behind-the-scenes tutorial. If you are familiar with the work of the BrotherhoodWorkshop (we have featured many of their videos and tutorials here before – see links at the end of this post), you know that they are very open about sharing their techniques to help other LEGO stop-motion animators who would like to improve their skills. Here Kevin talks about his tricks on how to improve images using after effects.
So what do you think? How did you like the LEGO The Hobbit stop-motion videos? And what you do think of the tutorial? Did you find it helpful? Do you do LEGO animation yourself? 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.
