"Little Guys... In Space!" on KickstarterFollow on FacebookPaganomation.comYouTubeMOCpagesFlickr
We here at Paganomation are developing a new LEGO stop-motion film, entitled "Little Guys... In Space!"
It's a sequel to our 2007 film "Little Guys!"
, which was created in a similar style -- all characters, sets, backgrounds, and effects built out of LEGO bricks and elements. With the new film, we're aiming to advance the techniques we developed for the first film: create more expressive characters, try out new brick-built practical effects, and generally push the boundaries of LEGO stop-motion as far as possible. We’re also looking to just make a fun, entertaining film that pays tribute to classic sci-fi archetypes and retro TV ads.
You can check out a presentation video about the film
on our YouTube channel, as well as a few preliminary photos over on our Flickr page.
Animation is a lot of work, though; and so in order to produce the film, we are humbly asking for your help and support. We've put together a Kickstarter campaign
in order to raise funds for the production, and we're offering some neat rewards for our backers, including custom LEGO kits, DVDs, pins, and prints, as well brick-built caricatures of our backers that will be featured in the film. You can find detailed information on all of that over at our Kickstarter page.
Even if you decide not to become a backer, we would also definitely love your support in just helping to spread the word about "Little Guys... In Space!" by inviting others to this Facebook event
, or by leaving us a comment over on YouTube
, or Paganomation.com
. It's exciting to be putting together a new film, and I'm really looking forward to experimenting with all kinds of crazy new LEGO stop-motion tricks and techniques.
A big thank-you to all of you who are already backers, and thanks to everyone else in advance for your support!
