Viva La Revolución - A Tale of Two Cities School Project

Postby Forestboy » Tue Jun 12, 2012 1:47 pm

So while I didn't build pretty much at all over the school year, I did make my first, full stopmotion-animation movie with two other classmates. The assignment given in English class was to make a movie that was 10+ minutes long that incorporated 5 or more events from Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities (along with a whole lot of other criteria. The only thing is, our movie was down in Lego, of course!

When I started the project with just one of my friends (since we had to do it in groups) I was very adamant that we would only need 2 people because it's hard for 4+ people who don't know a thing about Lego or stop-motion animation to help you complete a 10+ minute feature in less than a month. Despite my protests, we added another classmate to the crew, but I pretty much ended up doing...75% of the work. Mostly because I'm a bit of a control freak and self declared director-producer-animator-set designer-etc. With over 75 hours of just filming and at least 120+ hours total, including pre-production (writing the script, recording the voices, building the sets), production (animating), and post (editing, exporting), this was one heck of a movie that I pulled an all-nighter for the day before. So without further ado, I present Viva La Revolución: LINK!


EDIT: Also, I'll just let you know that the last scene is pretty boring because we ran out of time for that scene, and the fourth scene is pretty awkward. But otherwise, enjoy! :mrgreen:

Not bad! The stop animation was pretty smooth. You can tell that you put a lot of work into it.

The stop-motion was excellent. I enjoyed the scripts too. The commercials were a nice touch, and I liked the execution scene. Nice work!
