Four robot friends try to figure out what to do with themselves.
Part 4 of 7 of Chapter 2: Robots!

Hey there BiMers! This episode was a beast to animate. It was my first time shoting on my new camera (Panasonic Lumix GH-2) and using Dragon Stop Motion. I will be giving an overview of my new animating set-up in the next few weeks so watch for that. Making this as one continuous shot was a crazy decision, but the payoff was definitely worth it. This was the first time I had people helping me animate, being able to have different people focus on each character was unbelievably helpful.

Fun facts:
- Though this video is only 2 minutes long, it took several months to make and over 110 hours of animating time.
- The “Harried Woman” figure at the beginning is in fact an official LEGO character – she is from the Belville series.
- Duckbot eats 16 things throughout the video Can you spot them all?
2 white plates, 3 fish, 1 radio, 3 gold cups, 2 parts of the table, 1 orange bowl, 1 mushroom, 2 wine glasses & 1 yellow book
- No kittens were harmed in the filming of this video

Re: Robots! Robots! Robots!

That's super impressive. Just one continuous shot for so long. Wow. mini/eek

Good job on your sets, the detail and everything, very nice. I love the fact that you can re-watch your stuff a dozen times and still notice little things in the background. You're wonderful at moving several different objects at a time.

Re: Robots! Robots! Robots!

Amazing.  You have to be one of the most dedicated brickfilmers out there.  Can't wait to see what you pull off next.

Re: Robots! Robots! Robots!

It was worth the wait of 5 long months...

Re: Robots! Robots! Robots!

Pretty damn awesome. Makes me feel bad about being so lazy with my setup.

Can't wait for the next episode. mini/bigsmile

Re: Robots! Robots! Robots!

Good job. 110 hours of animating time. That takes dedication.
