A LEGO-Themed Take On the Movie Inception [Video]

This Inception-inspired short film combines LEGO and CGI to great effect.

Courtesy of a Staffordshire University design team, the short is a result of roughly a thousand hours of design work spread between seven students to serve as their semester project in visual FX.

It has everything you could want from Inception rendered in LEGO: folding landscapes, flying bricks, an a LEGO man or two even loses his head.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Well that’s annoying; it worked fine a few hours ago when I posted it. I’ll update the post to show the Vimeo video! =)
