Recent Work: Sky & Lego Batman Movie Commercials

Just finished up on a series of Lego Batman commercials. It was so refreshing to animate in this style! To kick off the project we had to shoot two of our own Lego stop motion shorts using real Legos. The animation director brought in some large boxes of bricks and characters for us to work with. We had a blast shooting those tests! I'll find mine and post them along with the other commercials when they're released.
