BUILD! An Epic LEGO Stop Motion Film [VIDEO]

What happens when a lightning strike grants a simple woodsman an ax of infinite power? Pure stop motion animated awesomeness.

Created by Scott Decoteau, David Pagano, and Matt Witham (with music by Jason Mass) as an entry for the LEGO Club Show in 2010, BUILD! is one of the more over the top LEGO animations we’ve seen.

Watch the video below and then visit the behind the scenes photo pool and model closeup pool for a more in depth look at the production.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    I really enjoyed the video. Can you tell me the name of the stop animation software you used? Our school district holds a technology tournament every year for all the middle school students. I would like to have a stop animation event next year. Thanks
