Bitflicks : very large and accurate representations of video games made out of Lego blocks.

made out of Lego blocks

not real blocks, looks like Lego designer software. Still cool, but the cut and paste functionality removes some of the wow factor.

Cool idea, but it occurs to me that you could fake his movies (i.e. computer generate them) with a bit of work in a rendering package (make the lego blocks, a bit of lighting, some nice wood texture, some scripting for the bit maps), making it all a bit pointless.

The BitFlicks style is a mix of stop motion animation, LEGO and CGI, all mixed up until the lines between each element begin to blur.

All in all, still quite wonderful. Thanks, boo!

If you're not going to do it right, don't do it at all.

Why does this feel like a YTMND fad?

This looks really, really CG.
