LEGO Mutilation – Bizarre or Creative ?

Is this really what you need to do to make stop motion more interesting. Lego minifig customizing is a big thing these days.. You decide..

Breaking News – 1,500 hours playing with LEGO┬«

The music is written by Daniel Larsson and the animation was done by Tomas Redigh of the Swedish techno group Rymdreglage, the below stop motion video took over 1,500 hours to complete. It is awe inspiring. When it was picked up online it went viral those shutting their website down because of heavy traffic. It just goes to show originality, creativity and sheer hard work pay off (most of the time). The video reflects on the era of 8 bit computing and the games of that age. They are showing their age (and mine) if they can remember playing those ! While not a techo fan I appreciate the music. They have 44 other songs on their channel which they are encouraging people to listen to. I wonder will it be a case that Rymdreglage end up being called the 8 Bit lego guys and renowned only for that work going forward rather than for their music.

Stop Motion – Anime !

To be honest I can’t really stomach much of the Japanese Anime that is out there. The underlying current of sexuality and violence in the guise of very young nymphs unsettles me! Or is it just me? However I can make an exception when it uses stop motion. It’s rare enough to find Anime characters used in stop motion online. It’s even more rare to find good stop motion done with Anime characters. But the above stop motion uses excellent sounds ,expressive movement and very low budget special effects superbly. I came across some very good stop motion from a guy in Japan called Plamoo. He has a Youtube channel that is worth checking also. Now since I do not speak Japanese I cannot tell you much about him (or her?) But what I can say is that the stop motion is top class. Anime Dolls
