The Brickfilmer's Guild
Welcome to the Brickfilmer's Guild (BFG). We are an online community created to spotlight and connect those that practice the art of brickfilming. Brickfilmers are the people that make animated films using plastic building bricks, such as Lego, Mega-Bloks, OYO Sportstoys, KRE-O, K'Nex, and a few others. The BFG is designed to showcase brickfilming animators, producers, voice actors, editors, and promoters from around the world. Brickfilming is a hobby for most, but it is a profession for a few. Many find it is a small source of revenue. In brickfilming production, there is usually only one or a very small group of people that preform the jobs of producer, writer, director, actor, casting director, animator, set designer, set constructor, lighting director, director of photography, editor, special effects artist, and promoter. The brickfilmers that do all the above the best find the most success.
We also try to deliver the most up to date brickfilming news. We search the internet looking for news being made by brickfilmers and report it here. Check out the Brickfilmer's Guild: Administrator blog for the latest brickfilming news. Also check out The Set Bump for the best in brickfilm blogging.
A member of the BFG can design and customize their own virtual space among fellow brickfilmers that are famous, soon to be famous, or just novice brickfilming hobbiest. A member's profile can include embeded videos (from YouTube and other video sites), a gallery of pictures (great for production pictures and mocs), Twitter feeds and much more including Blogs, the Wire (and site wide micro blog), and a Chat Room.
This site is meant to compliment brickfilming sites such as Bricksinmotion and Brickfilms.com. Please create a profile here if you brickfilm, even you are a member of those sites. We also encourage members of Brickboard (the German online brickfilming community) and members of Brick-À-Brack (the French brickfilming community) to join the guild and create profiles.
We currenlty have over 800 members.

Camera! Action! LEGO® Animation. The ages 10 and up group built an animation set and learned how "to make their minifigs, as well as vehicles come alive through stop motion animation."

Entertainment Weekly and other sources have reported that FOX will air a Lego version of The Simpsons on May 4, 2014. The story revolves around Homer finding himself in a world made of Lego pieces. We are not sure if was created using stop motion or CGI. Either way this will be a very exciting episode to watch! :)
