Stop Motion KiteSurfing

We celebrated Xmas at New Year in our house on account of the flu epidemic wiping out half my family last week.

Yesterday, on New Year's Day, the three big grandkids spent a lot of the day working on making the Lego kits that we gave them for Xmas. Yes, Virginia, there is a way to get American kids to put away their Wiis and iPads and actually play with real toys like their parents used to.

The uber-blogger of the family and her technical support staff (son #1) were working in the afternoon on editing and producing a video of a luxurious ski weekend that she had recently scored through her blogging business.

Lego? Video? Someone mentioned the possibility of making a stop-motion video with the Lego. Maybe with a sailing theme?

Oh! Look at this. Somebody beat us to it. Stop Motion Lego KiteSurfing!

Check out that left-hand towel reef break!

Well done Tom Court.

Brilliant! I also like the English-accented Reggae back song. Happy New Year Tillerman!

Well spotted Tweezerman - Born Ina Barn is actually from the Deep South - the deep south of the Isle of Wight in England.

When the Volvo comes to Newport you and your grandkids will definitely have to see the Lego model of the SCA boat at the SCA pavilion - over 100,000 pieces with working canting keel, etc.

That is such a great video.

Thanks for the tip KR. We will definitely look out for the Lego Volvo boat (if they actually bring it to Newport.)

my2fish - I'm glad you like it. It is pretty cool isn't it? And yet using such simple props.
