To celebrate Halloween, we decided to make use of our supply of Lego and make a short film. Originally it was to be a narrative but we found it quite difficult to find a story that worked and made use of our wide range of Lego Minifigs. During our research we thought it would be a great idea to spoof a 1930s Horror Film trailer which would enable us to not have to worry about a narrative and concentrate on making fun scenes and loosely tie them together… Read more on our behind the scenes blog, and see the video [...]

Anyway, she wants to be a cat for Halloween, so I will be using a lot of eye liner on her. I’ll share the results on Friday.
