Director's Comments

Hi everybody!  So the last one was so successful that LEGO had me do a fastest funniest prequel synopsis for this years "Star Wars Day!"  I designed, built and animated everything out of brick (except for the product placement, of course.)  As before, LEGO gave me a rough script, then I submit storyboards and set pics, I animate to a temporary audio track, and then they do all the sound design and cg stuff!  Again, though, all the building and stop motion was done by myself in my garage over 3 months, for a total of five months production.  I really tried to make accurate sets and give dramatic lighting, while making a tragedy funny... hope you all enjoy! Thanks! :)  -garrett baratigbarati.com
