[VIDEO] Knights without Blacksmith

This animation is one of the most important short films for me. It was made for the LEGO Ideas competition for a maximum 30-second video showing life in the Middle Ages without a blacksmith. I will write right away - I did not win the competition. So why is it so important to me?

The answer is simple. Because this is the first stop-motion animation I made in my new studio. Not only the workplace has changed but also the hardware and software.

I actually changed everything. Studio place. Camera. Lenses. Lighting system. Microphone for recording sound effects. A rail for camera dolly shots. Animation software. Audio editing software. And probably a few other things that I don't remember anymore.

It was March 2021. I haven't animated since 2018. I shot previous animations mainly in the living room which was converted into a quasi-studio. I was shooting at the table where we normally ate family dinners etc.

So this was the first real test of the new studio. I checked how all my ideas and designing the studio will do in the real work.

It worked great :) I've improved a few things since then. Like I bought a new preamplifier for sound recording, more lenses and other studio equipment but in general this brickfilm has defined a whole new workflow for me.

That's why this is such an important film for me, and it will always have a special place among my works. Enjoy!
