Build Your Dreams

A quick little narrative about Lego built primarily using Cinema 4D.

This is a personal project I made looking to experiment with Cinema 4D’s physical renderer and plastic materials and to create a piece with a narrative as I was building portfolio work to apply to graduate school. I decided to create a fun little Lego animation which brings back many great childhood memories, as Lego is my favorite toy and I can fondly remember building all kinds of wacky things with those bricks. I animated the assembly, character, and camera movements all in Cinema 4D; adding color correction, typography and minor tweaks in After Effects. It was definitely challenging to start creating narratives and story arcs, as that was not something I learned in my graphic design training.
