This week’s Brickfilm of the Week is Dr. Jobs and his Scary Laboratory by Fumitaka Anzai.
Brickfilming is, like LEGO itself, an international phenomenon. Our beloved plastic bricks transcend international borders and language barriers with ease, and we’ve seen brickfilms and brickfilmers from around the world. However, while we’ve seen plenty of brickfilms from North America, Europe and Oceania, we’ve essentially seen no brickfilms from Asia. Dr. Jobs and his Scary Laboratory by Fumitaka Anzai is an exception. Released in 2005, this brickfilm caused a stir thanks to its impressive visual effects and extremely smooth animation that essentially had never before been achieved with LEGO. While Fumitaka Anzai did post this film on Brickfilms.com, he was not an active member, and very little is known about him.
