VIDEO: Lego sword fight

I decided that I’m not quite there with my technique enough to launch into modelling with animation – so I’ve gone back to the drawing board and invested in some lego.

Here’s a short animation using lego minifigs (much easier than building your own models).

As you can see there’s a bit of camera wobble still as the tripod isn’t the greatest – I really need something with better weighting to properly lock off my shots – but as an early amateurish attempt it’s not too bad.
