I've fixed this up for you but here's at tip: On EVERY YouTube page to the right of the video is its URL. Just click on the URL box then copy. That's how you get the correct address.

It's out of order however :-( . I saw part two then part one. It goes POTB "Mask" then Return to Victoria. I realize that some of the footage is just repetead in the movies. Interesting though. A pretty good watch :-) , If you have about 24 minutes to spare.

Yes, stopmotion. The celephane for water works quite well. Actually, the order goes bottom up.

Ok, I've reordered them. I've seen Part 1 so I should have realised that was first but NOOOOOOOO I put it second. What a drunken barnacle I am!

they made these with stop motion and photoshop

Where did you get this information from Mr Norrington?

he could be guessing :-/ On the other hand, it is usually photoshop, but could be used in another program(?)

I highly doubt they could do the moving mouths effects in real life.

You mean the animators used Photoshop to draw different mouth positions for the mini-figures? That's most likely, however it doesn't really explain how it was animated.

One possibility is they took each image individually and used a program like Adobe Premiere/Final Cut Pro/Ulead Video Editor to put them together sequentially. Or another possibility is they used special software designed especially for stop motion animation which takes care of putting the images together as soon as they're taken.

It's most likely the software one. They also had live action shots as well.

Which links are you referring to Evil Willy? Those provided by Norrington or those provided by me in the third post? The links provided by me should work fine... They do on my computer anyway.

Are they "popping out" at one time or are they just being posted in this forum around the same time?

We need to find a way to advertise the forum on YouTube to get all the Pirate LEGO fans there aware of this forum.

Well, I must say, its far better and far more origional then MOST Lego stop-motion you see. (See the new Stop-Motion BZP fad for more details. 1 frame per second choppyness! woo!) The use of real-time film and actual water/plastic water is VERY origional and cool. The animation itself, while a bit choppy, is good when you concider these are legos. Im sure it took a fair bit of time to do.

But it could still be done a bit better :/ Some of the poses are simply unnatural, the rain falling straight down is rather dumb looking, and most of the voice acting is rather bland.

But still, when viewed all-around, very nice!

well what posesare unnatural? they are just little lego people, so they cant do many poeses. and hey, just think of it as "stunts".

Actually Norrington, you can make the animation very smooth. Incredibly smooth. And you can do lots and lots of poses.
