How to Create Stop Motion w/ Kevin Ulrich

I am very proud to say that I know Kevin and the Ulrich brothers, whom I met from the Biola Film School. Kevin makes these incredible stop animation videos with Legos. If you haven’t already seen his viral videos floating around the internet, then make sure you watch them here.

He created a neat video where you tells some of the secrets that go into making a stop motion video. Kevin is a humble guy so I will brag for him.  He’s been perfecting his stop motion craft for years (since he was a little kid), has created a feature length claymation film, and recently worked down in New Zealand at Weta Workshop on the Hobbit. This guy knows what he is doing. I hope this inspires all you animators and stop motion lovers!  Claymation is was got me into filmmaking.

Check out Kevin’s facebook page for special postings and Behind the Scenes photos!  You’ll want to keep up with this guy because he is going places…..

    This is super encouraging. Thanks for posting this Zack. Do you think Kevin will ever create a movie like Wallace and gromit?

    Amazing. I don’t have the patience to create this kind of film. But clearly it makes you a better filmmaker! Way to go Kevin and i know we will be watching your films on the big screen someday.
