Introduction: How to Make a Movie Countdown Animation Using Lego
I was making a lego video and i wanted to make a countdown like in old movies, so i decided to make one using lego so here is how you to can do it using stop-motion animation.
Step 1: Making the Number Three
- Assemble the wall using white blocks and make the number using red blocks. Notice that the red blocks are embedded in the wall.
- Please follow the pictures to see exactly how I completed each frame.
- There were 22 frames in total. You could use more or less. 22 frames works out to roughly 1 second depending on the frame rate that you choose.
Step 2: Making the Number Two
to is more difficult because of the bends both ways but it only takes a bit more time so just look at the pictures closely and be patient.
Step 3: Making the Number One
Number 1 is by far the easiest because there are no curves in the number and it is the easiest to make look really good
Step 4: Touch Ups
-have a frame of black Lego wall and a frame of white Lego wall in between each number
-using whatever video editing software you have, manipulate the run time of each number so that it is 1 second
-and if you left a little extra space on the sides of your pictures like i did you could add an old camera reel effect.
