Cool Videos: The Duel (LEGO)
The internet may have some nasty, depraved, disturbing, and genuinely stupid things posted up in it, but that's not all that there is to be had. Sometimes, every once in a long while, something so awesome appears that it not only makes the slog through those not-so-nice things worth it but it makes everything else that was seemingly awesome pale in comparison.
Such is the case with YouTube user Namchild and their stop-motion short film The Duel (LEGO). Accompanied by some fantastic music for the occasion, watch below as Lego becomes the vehicle to tell a better action story than 90% of what is currently out there.
Oh, and as per the description beneath the video: "All effects (incl. motion blur/explosions/wind/wood etc.) are in shot and were happening as the picture is taken. No cgi is used. Photoshop is only used to remove support wires etc." Also known as "reason #52 why this is awesome."
|Extra Tidbit:||One comment on the video's YouTube page said: "This was why my room was always a mess, mom. Still is, 30 years later..." Definitely a true story.|
