It was always going to happen... but it happened surprisingly quickly...
That was the work of youTuber Final Feature, who after a non-stop 22 hours of work presented his version of the full first Star Wars The Force Awakens teaser trailer in glorious LEGO.
It took 4 hours to shoot the more than 1500 frames of animation at 29.97 FPS. 3 hours to build the landscapes and ships/vehicles. Topped off with 15 hours of finishing touches, and I think it's pretty amazing!
But, that wasn't the first one. Beating him by several hours was this...
Not quite so polished but equally awesome. YouTube user Snooperking got all the details right, he explained his process:
I had nothing to do yesterday so I started once the trailer came out so i built the Falcon, The X-Wing, The speeder bike thingy, a mini tie fighter, tried to build all the sets, and get all my minifigures put together… then just filming took forever especially the the special effects… i tried stop motion in front of the green screen and that was hard and by this time it was 3am so like more than 12 hours (i took a 3 hour break somewhere) and then finally gave up and used sewing string for the X-Wing and just kind of moved my camera around the falcon, i wasn’t as happy with the falcon shot but i cant work on it at all today so i had to finish it like 4 hours ago, but i just woke up to go to my grandparents house, and now you know everything about how it was made!!What do you think?
Pretty cool huh?
