Brick-by-brick : Building a tractor

Here's an epic LEGO stop-motion film - even if I do say so myself!

Instead of the usual '1 frame per second' you get with the speed builds, et al, these images were taken manually - one picture for every new brick added. And since there's just over 350 pieces to make this model, that means there's 350+ pictures taken.

Well.... it was a bank holiday... what did you expect people to do? See family?

Lego City Zombie Defense

It has the word "zombie" in it. Therefore it qualifies.

Any questions?

So, from a certain point of view, a film projector is just a motor and a lens; you pull a reel of film past a lens (with a light behind it) and basic optics does the rest.

From my point of view, a film projector is a piece of precision enginerring that must maintain a constant speed and force, feeding film through pulleys and over capstans as to not excert undue force on the (fragile) film stock.
