Stop-motion grooviness: Type & Legos

Being a fan of stop-motion filmmaking, I thought I’d share a couple of great recent finds. (Full-screen viewing recommended in both cases.)

“Handcrafted with love by BYU design students and faculty, for the 5th Typophile Film Festival. A visual typographic feast… Everything in the film is real–no CG effects!” [Via Marc Pawliger]
Meanwhile, as for “8-Bit Trip,” good lord:

“1500 hours of moving Lego bricks and taking photos of them.” And I thought Gondry’s Fell In Love With A Girl vid was extreme. [Via]

    Holy moley! Completely amazing.

    Both of those were quite fun. I love stop motion too, but probably don’t have the patience. 1500 hours? Wow, that’s commitment.

    They are amazing videos! The amount of hours that went into that though! Was probably at 3 months with at least 10- 20 people. Thanks for posting up the video!

    That brings back some memories. Karate Champ rules!

    The single-minded effort! Makes my teeth itch. Better them than me but I liked that.
