Welcome to Bricks in Motion!
We are an online filmmaking community devoted to the art of stop-motion animation. Most of our films, sometimes called brickfilms or LEGO movies, are created using LEGO® and other plastic brick building toys. In addition to an active community forum for filmmakers, this site is home to an ever-growing directory of films submitted by our users.

The upcoming edition of the Twenty-four Hour Animation Contest has been announced! Visit the forums for more details.

The fundraising campaign for Bricks in Motion: the Documentary on Kickstarter has ended, raising $12,800 from 270 backers! We're excited by the success of the campaign, and grateful to the BiM community for making this happen. In order to make the film the most ambitious and successful project it can be, however, we'd like to aim higher.

Bricks in Motion: The Documentary is a feature length film about the world of stop motion LEGO® animators. We'll explore the personalities and lives of various filmmakers around the world.

In return for your support, we're offering a number of exclusive rewards, including the Bricks in Motion Collection, a DVD and Blu-ray of classic films from the Bricks in Motion community, with new director commentaries! It will also showcase all the entries to the recent BiM Celebration contest.

To learn more about the rewards or make a pre-order, visit the BiM Documentary discussion thread.
