This week LEGO kicked off a series of stop-motions shorts for its Star Wars toys, beginning with "Freeze Frame," a lighthearted spot set in Cloud City. It's a fun 15-second spot that, as it turns out, required a lot of work.
Brotherhood Workshop breaks down the laborious process in a fascinating video that takes us from the storyboards and the construction of the tiny carbon freezing chamber to the practical lighting effects and post-production work.
