This week’s Brickfilm of the Week is Men O' War by Isaac Botkin.
Traditionally, nearly all brickfilms are made with actual, physical LEGO (or similarly) pieces, using stop-motion to make the characters and objects move. Over the years however, brickfilms made with digital LEGO and computer animation have been made. Men O’ War, animated by Isaac Botkin, is one of the most impressive CGI brickfilms. Released in 2006, this brickfilm made a splash and was eventually nominated for a Best Visual Elements award in the 2006 Brickfilms Achievement in Motion Pictures Awards. This is Isaac Botkin’s only brickfilm, and was made with the help of many other members of the Botkin family.
