LEGO shot me an email followed by a series of phone calls, asking me to make them 3 stop-motion adverts around 2 minutes long. I have to pay for the supplies, but, they are paying me 10,000 dollars PER each animation. That's around 3.50 for each picture I take, not including editing time.

What the heck is a 14 year old supposed to do with 30,000 dollars!
I'll get myself a car and I guess save the rest for college. :P

I can't even explain how happy I am right now. I'm bursting with joy.

They just saw my animations... :P And yes, seriously. :D

Your Lego animations are really good, usually I don't like the way Legos are animated but yours are actually smoothly animated and I like the way you set up your shots.

I also have to applaud Lego for wanting to use stop motion, usually they use CG so I like that they are appreciating stop motion.

I always thought you were older harry, I thought you and I were about the same age.

I honestly don't really like the idea of animating LEGOs. But, when I can make money, I'll do it. :)

And thanks for the compliment. You really are an AMAZING clay animator.

I guess I act older than I honestly am.

I can imagine it would be very hard to get emotion out of a Lego. 

harryboy8080 Posted: Jul 17th 2012

I know right.
Thank you photo editing programs.

That's amazing!
Glad they're using stop motion, it makes more sense anyway, it actually uses their products!
 Have they given you instructions for what the three adverts must be?
Send us a link when you've done them!!!
