The Lego movie is a personal favourite of mine. I grew up playing with them for most of my childhood. Ever since I’ve seen the movie for the first time I was amazed, how they took the world so serious. Everything is consistently made out of Legos, even the coulds and explosions. How cool is that?

Jan and I had the idea to create the same work in our respective programs. He mainly works with Cinema4D and Octane, while I’m currently enjoying Houdini and Redshift.

Both of us had a rough Idea on how to approach the project, but some problems where clear to begin with:

How could we nail the Lego look as close as possible and make everyhing feel like it could belong into the film.

We decided to record everything we were doing and only talk, once we are both finished. Check out the timelapsed documentation and more details below!
