Do you like original Star Wars Trilogy and Rogue 1? Do you also love LEGO? Then you will love this animation!
Escape – Episode II is a new story from the galaxy far, far away.... Empire forces led by Darth Vader are on the hunt for a Jedi Knight who survived the Jedi Purge. It is a LEGO stop motion animation full of great adventures with rebels, Empire and bounty hunters. Filled with great locations and spaceships. You will meet both already well known characters and a new heroes.
Story is told with epic shots in beautiful brick-built sceneries and with dynamic action scenes.
first of all I wanted to thank you all who supported my project! You are awesome!
And straight to the point - I decided to refund all of your donations.
$257 USD raised by 10 backers is just 4% of my goal and I think keeping it would be not fair to you. After all fees and and local taxes I would receive like half of that sum.
This kind of money will not speed up the process of movie making. As for equipment I managed to get almost all missing pieces. The only thing I need now is time.
So of course Escape II will be made. With no budget it will be much harder. But I will make it anyway :) I will probably delete some scenes and make it with less frames per second to speed up process and make it cheap as possible.
If you would like to support this movie in less direct way please make purchase at my Bricklink shop. Big part of earnings from this shop goes into production of the brickfilm.

Escape – Episode II is a big Star Wars fan production. It is LEGO stop motion animation with a totally new story from the galaxy far, far away.... Empire forces led by Darth Vader are on the hunt for a Jedi Knight who survived the Jedi Purge. It is an animation full of great adventures with rebels, Empire and bounty hunters. Filled with great locations and spaceships. You will meet both already well known characters and a new heroes.
Story is told with epic shots in beautiful custom brick-built sceneries and with dynamic action scenes.
Animation will be available for free to watch on YouTube.
The pre-production of animation is almost complete and now it is going into production stage and looking for funding via crowdfunding at Indiegogo.
Dominik Skarbek-Kruszewski aka Kalais is a professional graphic designer, photographer and film maker. He is also a big fan of Star Wars and LEGO! He creates custom models, dioramas and animations. He made several LEGO stop motion videos including commissioned videos for the LEGO Group. You can view his works at YouTube, LEGO Blog, LEGO Life App, The LEGO Batman Movie DVD/BLU-Ray and they are even displayed at Ninjago City buildings at The LEGO Ninjago Movie.
He started this project 2 years ago. Stop motion animation is very time consuming. Besides pre-production (scenario, storyboard, animatic, designing everything, building scenery etc.) you need to take a lot of photos. Usually few seconds of the animation can take you the whole day of work. Running time of Escape – Episode 2 will be around 10 minutes and making it after work would take him another 2 or 3 years to finish...
This is why he would like to quit his job for 1-2 months and spend all his working time on the making (and finishing) this animation.
Also the crowd-funding money would get him better camera/lens, professional software for stop-motion animation, some additional lights and some more LEGO bricks for the scenery.
