Length: 01:20

Director's Comments

This is a fast-paced animation that we made to demonstrate the art that LEGO lets you create. We tried a bunch of new techniques when we animated this, so this film is highly experimental. Hope you enjoy!

Staff Review

Randy Yard:
A minifig constructs a mosaic of the LEGO logo. An uninspired concept like that requires a lot to be done right to be worth watching, but BuilderBrothers does just enough to make this short interesting... namely, some solid camera work and little flourishes like the minifig taking a coffee break halfway through. If you're looking for substance or originality, move on, but if you want a good way to kill two minutes, this short is an entertaining watch.
