Video Essay: Wie Fanfilme den Look von THE LEGO MOVIE prägten

Super schickes Video-Essay von Vox über Brikfilms, Fanfilme generell und die Entstehung des Stop-Motion-Looks von The LEGO Movie.

When you watch installments of the Warner Bros. line of Lego movies, it’s hard not to be struck by how realistic the animation is. It isn’t quite traditional stop motion — but it sure looks as if it could be. That’s largely thanks to the work of the animators at Animal Logic, a Sydney-based visual effects studio that has worked on The Lego Movie, The Lego Batman Movie, and the upcoming The Lego Ninjago Movie. Powered by live action filming techniques and a close attention to detail, the studio has helped reinvent what Lego animations can look like. But they owe a lot of that aesthetic to the influence of fan films.

Since the early 1970s, enthusiasts have made home movies with their own Lego sets. They’re called Brickfilms — and they’ve grown into a sizable community producing great movies and helping many young animators get their start.

Das dichotome Hotel Hotel-Mono_01

Das „Hotel Mono“ besitzt es einfaches wie zeitloses Farbsystem: Schwarz und Weiß. Und das in möglichst klarem Kontrast zueinander. In Singapur können Design-Liebhaber in der nicht nur in Sachen Farbe, sondern auch bei den Formen sehr robust gehaltenen Unterkunft nächtigen. Okay, bist auf die Fassade, die mit ihrem wunderbar altertümlichen Stil nochmals einen weiteren Kontrast hinzufügt. Love it!

„Hotel Mono is a chic hideaway set in six historical shop houses of modern design. The beautifully rejuvenated buildings retain original charm with characteristic airwells and Rococo-era windows; slipping into traditional Singapore and interweaving with the city’s urban bustle.“
