LEGO "ONE RED BRICK" (2015)
All one shot. The red brick never moves. We jump through time as the kids get older and older, maturing in their particular flavors of lego build sets. Once again, I loved the specificity here.
The legos in the finished product were all CG. We shot motion control in stage for one day. We had the set built and and lit in advance. We programmed the shot first thing, and then would repeat the same shot with new set design and slightly older kids each time. The motion control, provided by Camera Control, allowed us to export the camera motion metadata and send out to Maya for Ember Lab (VFX) to work with. Outside the window was blue screen (or green?). We shot some takes with placeholder legos, some takes with no legos, and some takes with no actors just for plates. In the end, it all came together.
