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 Bricks in Motion Documentary Kickstarter campaign has launched. We're making a documentary about the world of brickfilmers, and we need your help to make it happen!


In return for your support, we're offering a variety of cool rewards, including custom sets designed by Nathan Wells, copies of the documentary when it's complete, and a collection of classic films on DVD and Blu-ray with new director commentaries.


For more information, check out the Kickstarter, or discuss the documentary on the forums here.
