The Matrix: The Lego Edition
Trinity Help” is a frame-accurate stop-frame animation video of the bullet-dodge scene from The Matrix done entirely with Legos. Before you watch this video, know that 440 hours went into the creation of it. The team of LegoMatrix wanted to create a video that was completely “in camera” without any CGI, special effects or photoshop involved.
Don’t expect more of this type video from these guys though, as they anticipate it would take 25 years as a full-time job to complete the entire Matrix film in this way. They even go so far as to say that if they could get the 440 hours back they invested in this video, you would not be seeing it now!
Watch the incredible detail in this video as they went to great lengths to match everything from camera angles to focal depths to continuity errors. Of course they had to deal with limitations of not only the legos, but also point and click cameras.
All in all I believe these guys did a great job. Just take a look at a few of the scenes they replicated. And read more about the incredible details involved in each scene here.
