Welcome to Bricks in Motion!
Founded in 2001, Bricks in Motion is a friendly filmmaking community devoted to the art of stop-motion animation. Most of our films, sometimes called brickfilms or LEGO movies, are created using LEGO® and other plastic brick building toys. We have an active forum for filmmakers to learn from each other and share their work, as well as an ever-growing directory of films submitted by our members, and periodic animation contests that challenge filmmakers to push their skills further.

Welcome to the EASTER 2019 Contest From 2011 to 2015, EASTER was an annual contest to celebrate spring and the spirit of Easter by spending two weeks holed up in a dark room animating! But sadly there was a four year hiatus between the last EASTER and now.... but here we are in 2019 with yet another EASTER Contest! And this time, EASTER is an official Bricks in Motion contest.


But this is no mere reboot of the EASTER contest. This is the ultimate TRANSCENDENTAL EASTER 2019. Let's all do our best to make this the best EASTER yet. Let it transcend all past EASTERs! (Too much? Ok, I'll stop)

First off, a big thank you to all who participated - regardless of whether or not you were able to finish in time. It isn't easy to reschedule an entire weekend for animation, and I commend those that did. The films that came about because of this contest were a joy to watch - and each and every one of you deserve a pat on the back!


Looking forward to next year! mini/bigsmile
