Lost Brickfilm - "Bloody Snow"?

I am sure this is still out there but I cannot remember the name for the life of me.

It was an ongoing series but the first few episodes were very distinct in that it was about 4 special forces guys deployed to a secret artic base.

I remember the sets were decorated in baking soda (I believe) to mimic snow and that there was an excessive use of blood effects.

The series went along the name: "Bloody Snow" or something like that.

The video opens to a black helicopter dropping the four soldiers off and after episode 1 they make it inside the base.

The last time I checked (which was probably 10 years ago) the guy was still making them but the plot changed from action based to more of a spy thriller in season 2.

The same guy made another brickfilm on a different YouTube account which I also cannot find.

The basics of that story was a guy gets into a fist fight at a bar and goes from room to room fighting different people.

This brickfilm was also very bloody and I remember there was a janitor who followed the guy around to clean up the blood with his mop (which was a witches broom piece).

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Thanks,

Im looking for old 2 part video

A long time ago I was really little and saw a 2 part video that was like a indiana jones parody. 1st video was about booby traps and was super bloody. 2nd vid they reach a treasure room and a giant human face appears and spits out marbles that turn into clay monsters. I know it sounds really weird but swear to God I remember just like that.

Looking for an OG Star Wars brickfilm that takes place in Cloud City

I am looking for a fairly old and from what I remember popular Star Wars brickfilm that has the heroes chasing Boba Fett and Darth Vader back and forth with Han Solo frozen in Carbonite. Almost like a classic Scooby Doo gag, they run up and down the aisles of Cloud City with him. I could possibly be forming "Lego Star Wars An Average Death Star Day" and "The Fastest and Funniest LEGO Star Wars story ever told" but I swear there is a brickfilm that includes the Cloudy City set- I just can't find it!

Recommended Large LEGO Stop motion/photo shoot setup?

Hi

I currently film LEGO speed build videos for YouTube and do some LEGO photography for Instagram and I would like to give stop motion a try soon. But I would really like to improve my lighting and stage setup before trying stop motion as my current lighting setup is horrible and I was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice on doing a large set up filming/photography? Or could point me in the right direction please.

My lighting currently consists of a ceiling light and three lamps.

The problem is my ceiling light has the best all round flood light and diffuse lighting but the current side canvas casts a shadow dulling the scene but if I remove it, the brown cupboard behind is visible in my scene/shoot as my shoot requires a large camera area. (Photo attached as an example)

The lamps have standard A4 paper over them to dull their intense reflections but I still end up with intense reflections. What is the best way to get rid of those bright pinpoint reflections but still have nice lighting?

I understand having a curved white card stock makes for a nice smooth background but can that been done in large scale?

 

Also do you have any free stop motion software suggestions that connects to a DSLR where the scene can be seen in real time? (Windows PC)

Thank you

Have a great day
