"A couple of things I have noticed that you could work on. (BTW the opening shot with the door in one corner and the character coming diagonally across shot is excellent) You might consider varying shot size, as most of your shots are wide-angle, so…"

"I agree. The rule of thirds is common in most films but breaking it is fine if it helps the audience see the vision of the film.  I always think as if im the audience watching the piece for the first time. Remembering that over the well…"

"Good topic. Here's a few thoughts to add. One advantage we have with stopmotion is that we are often capturing frames with many more pixels than HD. My Canon captures in effectively 5k. This means that it is possible to reframe the shot without…"

FRAMING - Tips and Tricks

Hi everyone, I would like to start a topic on FRAMING for stop motion. I believe it is a very important part of the whole creation of a stopmotion since the composition of shots or scenes can change a lot in our brickfilms. From what I see, a good stop motion is most likely supported by good framing. Although I am not really sure if you guys find it as important.  Please share your thoughts and if you have some TIPS and TRICKS about this. I'll start with the basic that I know RULE OF THIRDS…See More

Hello everyone! This is Wifey Blocks Studios. I recently started creating brickfilms shorts. I am now dedicated in growing this passion. I am very much eager to learn a lot from the members of this community and I would also share my learnings as well. I hope you will enjoy whatever works I may share.

My wife is my life. She inspired me everyday and luckily, motivated me to bring out my creativity and passion through lego stop-motion animation. The fun and laughter that my videos will share is because of my love for my wife. Every bit of my work is dedicated for my wife! I love her so much! LEGO WIFE , LEGO LIFE!
