The Return of Little Guys

Long-time community member and animator for LEGO, David Pagano, is working on a personal brickfilming project and is looking for help!


Our new film is called "Little Guys... In Space!", and it's a stop-motion homage to ‘80s space toy commercials, featuring large-scale LEGO sculptures as the main characters. It’s a sequel to our 2007 film "Little Guys!", which was created in a similar style -- all characters, sets, backgrounds, and effects built out of LEGO bricks and elements.

With the new film, we're aiming to advance the techniques we developed for the first film: create more expressive characters, try out new brick-built practical effects, and generally push the boundaries of LEGO stop-motion as far as possible. We’re also looking to just make a fun, entertaining film that pays tribute to classic sci-fi archetypes and retro TV ads.

To get the film made, we're currently raising funds for "Little Guys... In Space!" on Kickstarter. Rewards include custom LEGO kits, DVDs, pins, and prints, as well brick-built caricatures of our backers that will be featured in the film. Check out our Kickstarter campaign, and please consider supporting our film and helping spread the word!

Little Guys!
