On the twenty third day of Christmas,
The bakery gave to us all:
An Indiana Jones Lego Figure.
I’ve had to dig pretty deep into the Bakery archives to find this video. I made this stopmotion animation (also known as a brickmation!) back in 2006 for my media A-Level whilst a wee lad. Many hours were spent in a dark room, (bin bags work very well for blocking up windows), armed only with a few lights, a camera and some Lego.
I’ve always enjoyed the stopmotion style and this was a chance to give it a go. I now have a lot of admiration for anyone that does stopmotion animation – truly the most patient of people.
You’ll have to excuse some suspect green screening and post work, this was 2006 after all!
Previously this film was only online for a few months before being removed by Youtube for “Copyright Infringement” – despite crediting Kasabian. However, here are some stats it got in that short time:
Not too shabby.
So here you go, I hope you enjoy some retro stopmotion on the 23rd day of Christmas!
