The Beginning of a Great Movie...

...that will never be finished.

Josiah and David decided they wanted to try their hands at stop motion movie-making, so they pulled out the LEGO box and got busy making backgrounds and props and so forth.  Even Tobin and Shav got involved in the project, digging through the pieces to find the right ones that would be useful.  They were having so much fun, and all was going splendidly.  After they did quite a bit of prep work, they borrowed my camera and started shooting.  This was one of their first shots, and I love the dramatic feel that the intense light gives it.
But then...

After laboriously moving the pieces bit by bit and taking MANY more pictures, they realized how incredibly time-consuming a project like this is. It's mind-boggling really.

And so the project was abandoned, the movie in their head left unmade.

I'm sure it would have been a great one, but I don't blame them a bit for quitting!  :)
