Animator of the Week: Joel Keiter
This featured brickfilmer post is part of a series of articles highlighting animators who supported the Bricks in Motion Documentary project on Kickstarter.
Joel Keiter, (thatsfinestudios), 16, first got into making brick films in 2012. By February 2013, he was pursuing making these videos on a regular basis; he notes Brotherhood Workshop and Harrison Allen (Squid) as chief inspirations. He's gotten a lot out of the hobby:
"Brickfilming as been a great creative outlet (and a way to justify to people the large amount of LEGO I have). Watching other people's films as well as making them myself is a great joy to me and I hope to continue Brickfilming for as long as I live. (However unrealistic that may be)"
One of Keiter's most recent films is the sci-fi short The Phantom Doctor.
