The Olympics: Brick-by-Brick

by Megan -

If you, like us, have been glued to the 2012 Olympic games, you’ll definitely want to watch these stop motion Lego recaps of the most memorable moments of the past two weeks. In honor of the games, The Guardian created Brick-by-brick Lego films of scenes from the London Olympics, including Usain Bolt’s gold-winning run in the 100 meter final and “Team USA’s Fab Five vault to gold.”

The Guardian’s skills at stop motion animation are almost as impressive as the gold winners themselves! Watching the original games was awesome, but these Lego films offer a fun twist (hah – get it?!) on the sporting events. If watching the Olympics inspires you to hit the field, pool, track, gym or whatever your sport of choice is, these videos will surely inspire you to get out your camera and Legos and make some stop motion magic. And what better way to do that than with iStopMotion? iStopMotion for the Mac or iPad makes stop motion animation super easy – and incredibly fun!

Watch a behind-the-scenes video of how the Brick-by-brick Olympic series was created!
