Fun LEGO Star Wars videos & film-tricks

The BrotherhoodWorkshop has been creating a series of excellent LEGO Star Wars stop-motion videos for the LEGO Group that you can see on the official LEGO Star Wars website, as well as on LEGO’s YouTube channel. Below I will show you three of the most recent videos, as well the videos where Kevin from the BrotherhoodWorshop shares how the scenes were created using some very clever techniques. 🙂

LEGO Star Wars Behind the Scenes by the Brotherhood Workshop

You can find all three LEGO Star Wars stop-motion videos in the video-playlist below. The first is titled LEGO Star Wars – Freeze Frame – Master Your Force, where Boba Fett is after Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. Can they use the Force to escape the Carbonite Freeze Chamber? The second video is titled LEGO Star Wars – Imperial Roadblock. The Empire is on high alert. Every vehicle entering Lothal is being searched for Rebel spies. When Kanan, Ezra, and a Rodian Rebel are caught in an Imperial Roadblock, they turn to the Force for help, with various success rate. The third video is titled LEGO Star Wars – Jawa Surprise, featuring two Jawas in the deserts of Tattooine. They are searching for salvage when they come upon a mysterious Jedi with the power to build a ship in mid-air by using the Force. Can the Jawas become masters of Force, too? All three videos are very funny, so I’m pretty sure you will enjoy them.

In the second video-playlist, I compiled the behind-the-scenes footage by Kevin from the BrotherhoodWorkshop, where he shares some of the most interesting techniques used in these three stop-motion films. The first video discussed lighting and other special effects used in LEGO Star Wars – Freeze Frame – Master Your Force. The second video focuses on blue-screen compositing in LEGO Star Wars – Imperial Roadblock. And the third video is about how to create a sandy surface that doesn’t make a mess by using Kinetic Sand, and featured in LEGO Star Wars – Jawa Surprise.

Interesting techniques, aren’t they? I particularly like the combination of Kinetic Sand and clay featured in the third video. Kevin also mentions that he has been inspired by the work of photographer Vesa Lehtimaki, who is know for creating amazing LEGO Star Wars images using some unconventional methods, like using baking soda for snow. If you are interested you can check out his book LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy. It is a beautiful hard-cover coffee-table book.
