How To Make Things Fly In LEGO Stop-Motions

The process of making a stop-motion can be tough. You have to make sure the frame rate is good and doesn’t make your video look sped up or choppy, that you have cool sounds and voicing that sounds clear and not low-quality, and that you have awesome special effects. there are many cool special effects, from sparks to explosions. Although many can be done using a special effects software or even LEGO pieces, there is one effect stop-motioners have always had trouble producing. Making objects fly. making objects fly is one of the coolest, but hardest things to achieve in a stop-motion. And unfortunately, most attempts made at doing so have been fails. But without this technique, how do you make archers shoot arrows, Jedi levitate enemies, or birds fly above buildings? Well, a new video by Brotherhood Workshop has come to save the day! šŸ˜€

Actually, before I show you the video, let me show you two other new videos from Brotherhood Workshop as well, both of which use the flying technique.

Nice videos, right? Now just watch the next video to see how they made stuff fly! šŸ˜‰

Cool! Now you know many different techniques to make things fly! By the way, the program he uses to mask stuff is called Dragon Frame, which you can learn more about by clicking here.

So, any ideas for what to use these flying techniques for? Any cool brickfilms you know of which use them? And did you like the first or the second Harry Potter video more? Tell us what you think in the comment section below! šŸ˜›

    • Tobymacboy, I believe it would be pretty hard to make the masking look fake. Did you see the first video? Gandalf using magic to make Voldmort float worked perfectly.

  1. I didn’t watch it (Low Data) but I meant if you rely too heavily on it. In LEGO SW 1-7 that I made I relied on SPCL FX too much and they turned out horrible.
