A step by step on how to make a brickfilm also some brickfilm how to video's from other lego brikfilm youtubers
Step 1.) Go on a video sharing website like Youtube and search for LEGO movies, to get ideas. (Examples:LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Mario, LEGO Batman.etc.)
Step 2.) Make sure you have all of your materials.
Step 3.) Build and stage your set, this could be 100% LEGO, a real world scene or a combination of the two. Be sure to look through the camera you'll be using, to get a sense of how your video will look. While you're doing this you can check for unwanted elements that need to be covered up or camouflaged, especially in the background.
Step 4.) Get the LEGO minifigure actors ready. As the stock minifigure heads are very static you may want to have a few suitable heads ready to go if you'd like for your actors to be expressive. If you can't find heads that work you could always paint some yourself.
Step 5.)Position the starting scene of your movie and your camera keeping in mind it is imperative that the camera be immobilized; otherwise your finished video will be jerky. Use a tripod or similar device to keep the camera still, then take the picture.
Step 6.) Move the actors in your scene, but just a little bit. It is easiest to move the character about two paces on the platform or about half an inch on the floor. Continue this until you are done with your movie.
Step 7.) Use any stop motion application on your computer that can make variable fps time settings. preferably one that can set up to 15fps, It will give the best results.
Step 8.) Go on iMovie, Windows Movie Maker or another movie making program and import your photos.
Step 9.) Delete any extra photos and put them in the correct order.
Step 10.)Watch your movie using the sideshow setting.
